Sorry if I am posting this in the wrong area, but since it deals with getting started I figured the “Installation” forum was the best place to start.
First, I’ll explain our set-up, then what we need to do, and hopefully someone can either help or point me in the right direction.
For security reasons we have 3 “servers” set up: Development, Staging, and Live. I have servers in quotations for reasons I will explain in a second. We do all of our new development, design and modification on the Development server, and once approved we move it to the Staging server where it is QA’d. Once it passes muster, we have an automated tool that pushes the new files from the Staging to the Live. No one ever physically touches the Live, and in this way, if a piece of code hoses the entire environment, its only shown on the Staging, and never goes live where it can affect the site visitors. “Servers” is in quotes above, because our live server is both load balanced and backed up…so the Live is actually 3 physical servers, Server 1, Server 2 and a Fail Over server in case of an outage.
We want only ONE blog, but, it will have to be edited on the Staging server for QA before being released to Live. We dont at any time want anyone using an admin on the live facing servers to edit the blog. And when updated, the updates need to be propogated in all three places.
Hopefully all of that made sense so you can understand my questions….someone has got to have an answer here.
Question one: Does anyone know how we can set the WP blog up on JUST the staging server, and once blog entries are approved, push the entries to the live?
Question two: Would these entries only push to one place? Could we have them push to all 3 live servers?
Hopefully someone out there understands what we’re trying to do and can send us down the right road.
