First off please note that even though you've posted to what you see as
a newsgroup, this is (now again) a bi-directional news/mailinglist.  If
you want any sensible help at all you MUST use a working From: header.

OH MY GOODNESS!!!  Talk about using the WRONG tool for the job!

You REALLY REALLY REALLY want to learn MUCH more about DB replication
and forget all about any kind of version control system or file-transfer
application for this!

If I'm not mistaken PostgreSQL has some fairly workable replication
tools already built right into it.  There's also the "free" version of
Oracle which may also include the necessary bits.

(I suppose you might try rsync too, but I'd MOST STRONGLY recommend only
ever doing this kind of thing from directly within the DB engine!!!!)
