  • Deploy and Production server environment

    Dear all,

    I normally develop on my pc several applications and then I deploy them to a folder. After that using Filezilla I copy it to server.
    I wonder if it's possible to understand how to make testing on server site and then use the local dev env. to edit application without everytime copy all the modified deployed environment.
    I sometimes deploy only one or more (not all) applications and then copy only them to server.
    I don't know why sometime everything works fine and other time not ?
    The _lib is very huge and copy it everytime take me quite half an hour each time.
    Also declaring the db connection every time is boring and time consuming.
    Please let me know wich is the best of breed approach to use
    Thanks

    I have had hit or miss results when deploying to shared servers. I have had to use the built-in deploy from within SC the past few times IIRC.

    I wonder if it's possible to understand how to make testing on server site and then use the local dev env. to edit application without everytime copy all the modified deployed environment.
    I am not sure I understand your question .. are you asking if you could install SC on the server and develop from there? You would have to find out of the ISP would support the requirements.
    If you have a dedicated server, you are set.

    Several notes:
    You should only have to send _lib once if you are using the same version of SC.

    If you send PHP file over the pipe in a FTP, I have seen where the resulting PHP file was modified "interpreted" and caused the app not to run. I always send a zip, but you have to have console access to unzip unless you can perform this in a console app provided by ISP.

    Most of my previous installs were on dedicated servers, so I did not face many of these problems, as I had root/console access.

    Regards,
    Scott.

      Thanks Scott,

      the servers are not mine but owned by customers . This is main reason why I can't install SC on server otherwise I have to buy one SC x single server.
      Most of customers do not like to have .zip extensions for different reasons. Don't tell me why.. Some of them are also hosting site. This is why I have to copy all directory file by file.
