I am having big confusion and problem about deployment process.
Present the website is already live and update the content day by day.
Now my question is , i want to developed a custom widget and deploy into production.Do i need to copy my complete website files and database from the production and restore into development server and do the changes and after finish the development then redeploy complete website files and database into production. If in this case my development database will be different than the production database because there will be new content added.
before deploying new enhancements to the production how can i ensure that the content is also up to date.
Is their any way that i can just copy the my custom widgets files(ascx and designer files) and move into production .What are the steps to we need to proceed.
Get it out from this confusion and Clarify us in details with steps .
Thank you & Regards
I am not expert, but i think that if you set up Thunder properly and do a code sync the DB should be fine (obviously backup first).
Once you have the sync'd you site, production will re-intialize...
I have a related question. I am hosted a site for an outside customer, that customer had some custom controls built. I added the files via the file manager and that works fine. Now, I see that SF has an export for deployment option in the admin side. Here are the questions:
I am ready to move the new files to production. If I use the EFD mentioned above, does that capture the new controls also? or do I need to move the deployment files also?
Next question, the documentation says that the export folder will be shown on the export page (and it does, it goes in the export directory) however, the rest of the documentation talks about a deployment folder, which exists no where as close as I can tell... so is the doc wrong? Do I just copy the export folder to the prod environment? Do I create a deployment directory on prod and dump the subordinate files in there? I am very very confused.
