Hi! I'm new to web sites in general, but a competent programmer.
A group of us have recently set up a website, using word press and the revolution pro media theme. It's all good and up and running, and somewhat personalised :)
I've been searching, and can't really find an answer, so thought I'd ask direct!
So far, I've made all the changes pretty much online. I'd download a source file over FTP, make changes, upload it and see if its working. How do most people backup, update and test their site? I'm used to things like subversion, where I have a local copy, which I can play with, change, run and test until I'm happy, at which point I submit the modifications. If I totally screw it up, it's easy to replace my mess with the live copies. It's also good for tracking changes etc. Is there similar stuff for web sites? Any advice?!
PS I'm on a mac
