Hey Dave,
Here is a great link from the wordpress codex about running a dev version.
WP has a built in Import/Export tool that you can use. So just Export
the prod version and download it to your local machine. Then use the
local version's Import.
http://codex.wordpress.org/Running_a_Development_Copy_of_WordPress

One of the great things about using WP is that there is typically very
little you could want to do that NO ONE has tried before, or even come up
with at least a hack for. Usually there is a plugin that does what you
want almost flawlessly. And even so, you could write a custom plugin if
you don't find anything. If you have any questions you can email me
offlist as well. I do lots of client work on the nights and weekends,
mostly in WP.

Re: [WEB400] Drupal or Wordpress deployment






Bryce, I got shut out of my own wordpress site when I installed and
activated a new theme which didn't function properly. I was just starting
with wordpress, so now, if I go beyond activating modules and creating
content I will want to do that on my dev site. If I were creating or
modifying a theme how should I go about that? Download all of prod to dev
plus the database? And after testing what do I need to upload?

Dave,
If you are only going to be using themes and plugins then you can test
that stuff locally on your pc. Once you have tested in different
browsers
locally and tested plugin functionality you can load them on the
production site. Heck, with Wordpress you can activate/deactivate
plugins
and themes so easily that it literally takes seconds to revert back to
the
previous theme. Most of my customers only have a production site and
the
designer uses a local copy for testing themes.

Re: [WEB400] Drupal or Wordpress deployment






But with Drupal or Wordpress, I'll be changing themes, adding
functionality
by activating plugins or modules. I won't know what to promote from my
dev
site to prod site.

2011/11/18 Jorge Merino <jorge@xxxxxxxxx>

In our case, we usually create subdomains and separate install folders
for
each web product,
e.g.
Production: www.example.com
Dev: dev.example.com

Folders on the server:
Production: /www/drupal
Dev: /dev/drupal

Then we synchronize the changes from the dev folder to the production
folder, and of course we never modify code directly on production
folders.

Hi all,

Just wondered if anyone's using Drupal or Wordpress and how you are
going
about taking your production site to development, to staging and then
back
to production. I mean, how do you know what get's modified exactly? In
my
case I will probably just have my development server and no staging
site.

Thanks.
