Can I Contact A Salés Rep?

I’ve always just FTPed files down from sites, edited them and put them back up when creating sites, but feel it’s worth learning to do things properly.

I’ve just commited everything to a SVN repo, and have tried sshing into the server and checking out a tagged build, as well as updating that build using switch.

All good, but it’s a lot lot slower than my current process.

What’s the best way to set something like this up? Most of my time is just bug fixes or small changes rather than large rewrites, so I’m frequently updating things.

For quick updates I just run svn update from the server.

Sometimes for really really quick updates I edit the files using vim and commit them from the server.

It’s not very proper, but quick and quite reliable.

You don’t necessarily need to use SVN to deploy the files to the server. Keep using FTP for that and just use SVN for revision history.
