Installation on Linux, run from PC

  • I do my development from a Win 7 PC. I have two servers, one for development and one for production. Both servers are Linux based. Develop and test on server1, then move the page(s) to server2, manage everything from Win 7. Sounds simple enough. I am having trouble setting it up. Need help.

    Your work station OS is irrelevant, if you are developing on server 1 and publishing your site on server 2. The goals are relatively simple. The modified database content and any modified files ready for production simply need to be moved from the development location to the live location. The simpler you keep that process, the less heartache you’re going to have.

    Three very important things to remember:

    1. Backups
    2. Backups
    3. Backups

    WordPress Backups

    If you’re more into the idea of automation and don’t mind some technical challenges, plugins like this SitePush – or something that provides a similar solution may be worth exploring. (Not a plugin endorsement, I’ve never used it.)
