Git on MS Windows
I'm no fan of that OS but still some people are working with it - so here is a short installation tutorial for working with git on a ms windows machine.
You have to install three software packages:
PuTTY Installation and Key Generation
Clone a Git Repository
clone a git repository and add a file to the local repository...
Commit, Push and Pull
commit local changes to the local repository and push the changes to the iis server.
check for update with git pull.
Generating a ssh key-pair
press generate and move your mouse in the small screen
optional and i don't know if TortoiseGit can handle passphrase protected keys: you can type in a passphrase to protect your key - then you will be asked for it every time you connect
save private and public key
Create a empty git repository
Create a local repository - open Windows Explorer:
Repository Settings (right click and go to repository settings)
Git → Config
set your username
set your email
set your full name
Git → Remote (and click on “Add new”)
Pulling a Repository
right click on the directory (git repository)
in the Tortoise-Git Menu select 'Pull'
for 'remote' select 'origin'
check 'AutoLoad Putty Key'
for 'Remote Branch' select or type 'master'
