This step-by-step article describes how to use FTP to transfer files either as one large archive of the Web site or to transfer each file individually.
FTP is the least complicated method that you can use to transfer files between two platforms.
grep DocumentRoot /usr/local/apache/conf/httpd.conf
After you determine the location, use tar to back up the documents to a file:
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin /usr/local/apache/cgi-bin
These may be outside of the document root for the Web site (as shown in the example).
Now move to the Windows-based computer:
One benefit of using FTP Voyager or a similar tool is that it uses ASCII mode for transferring ASCII files, which automatically translates the line termination sequence between the two platforms, and binary mode for graphics and other files, which eliminates any post processing on the files, but which does not fix the path name or other problems.
