Creating a staging server

By CBowen ·
My team and I are currently researching different ideas for creating a server environment where web developers will be able to log in and copy their new or updated content files onto a staging server. Then, from this staging server, the files would be automatically moved into the correct directory on our production servers.

I am hoping that someone will be able to solution and how we may be able to do something similar.

A Staging Server

by techrepub In reply to Creating a staging server

I assume that you mean someone at least hits a button to move the files up to the production server from the staging box . . . That can be accomplished several ways. You could use some scripting language like Perl, PHP, ASP, ColdFusion, etc, and build a web interface that would allow you to select the files to be moved, then either FTP or directly write the files into the production space. But I think you'll want some human intervention to activate this process. That way, if you discover there is an issue with the stagged code, it won't go into production until you are truly ready for it. A properly built system could queue up the files and have them ready for the "go" button to be pushed.
