    I'd love to see a way to develop and manage WP on a staging/production server environment.

    Do you mean where you can code some stuff up, or make a few changes, then "stage" it (not go live) and if it looks good, then push it live? IF so... GREAT IDEA!

    You have my vote ;)

    Yes, a "promote to prod" feature would be nice.

    Sounds like over engineering and best left in the server configuration and revision control arena.

    I use WP as a CMS. I develop and edit in a local staging environment and then move the updated files and DB to a production (live) environment. There are a number of steps involved. It would be very useful (to me and hopefully others) if there was a may to migrate the updated files and DB from staging to production with a single button click.

    Yup, vote from me - I've also moved a couple of sites and it is troublesome and a little worrying the first time! This would be a really great feature - a kind of 'export to different url' mysql script.

    well then, the title should have said "easy site migration", which is th real issue, not the staging/prod moving; I agree with easy site migration :)

    I think this is best left to the user/developer/implementor. Not the software developers.
    Everything can be automated, and EVERYONE'S position will be unique to themselves.

    Mind you, version controlled things become an absolute mess in the more restrictive Shared Hosting environments.

    I found out today that there is a define you can add to the wp_config.php file that has been in for ages, that auto updates the blog URL when you go to wp-admin.php

    just add

    define('RELOCATE', true);

    to your wp-config.php file
    Once done... you can upload any database that may contain the wrong blog URL... visit the wp-admin.php page, and login and it will automagically update your database!!!

    Note I haven't tested this, but I have it on good authority that it works.

    You guys might like to know that Trunk now has the option to specify the SiteURL and HomeURL in the wp-config.php file
