I want to copy my website to the webserver. These files should be transferred from my local computer to my Windows server. I am running Windows 10 version 1709 (build 16229.431) on my local machine and Windows Server 2019 version 1809 (build 17763.348) on my webserver. Both machines have a static IP. On both machines GIT version 2.15.1.windows.2 on the local machine and GIT 2.23.0.windows.1 on the web server.

So far, I have been copying the files (Ctrl+C, Ctrl+V) via Remote Desktop to the Windows Server. Is there a way to solve this using a PowerShell command or similar? Or somehow with GIT?

I have tried WinSCP, but that didn't work because I couldn't get to the web server. I don't think the solution of copying via RDP is smart.

  • What was the problem when you tried to use WinSCP? – YetAnotherRandomUser Aug 27 at 14:24
  • I could not connect to the server with Winscp. – Ali Aug 27 at 19:32
  • This is the exact error: "Network error: Time limit for connection "xxx.xxx.xxx.xx" was reached." – Ali Aug 27 at 19:35
  • I'm guessing that you didn't set up or test an FTP server on your webserver. You'll need to do that to get FTP working. I use FileZilla for server and client, and it's relatively straightforward. There might be a way to use http, but that's a lot more complicated than install Filezilla, make a user, connect with that user. – YetAnotherRandomUser Aug 27 at 22:25

I made it. I can now always get the correct version from the repository via GIT. The problem was that the Windows firewall did not allow access from my GIT server. Now I released the web server on the GIT server for incoming and outgoing connections. Now it works. Thanks to everyone who tried to help me.
