Re: Post comit hook website update

Hi Ryan
Thanks for a answer.

There is some problems using your idea.
1) RSYNC is an Unix only program, it can't be used by Windows. Both of my
servers are windows based.
2) The servers aren't on the same network so I have to use somthing like FTP
to transfer files.

I thought to use post commit script to send the file over the ftp, but the
post comit scrip is provided only with the folloing arguments "the path to
the repository, and the new revision number that was created" (accoring to
the manual).
Is there any way to know wich files were changed and to transfer them
maintaing the directory sructure?
