Re: [Subclipse-users] Export changed files only

I'm not sure this would be appropriate in your environment, but this
is what I'd do:

1. Install a svn client on the test server
2. Do a checkout of your web project to whatever staging area is
3. Do an svn update whenever you need to get the latest.

If you don't want to have a working copy under your public_html folder,
I do it all the time on my dev boxes) :

1. Install a svn client on the test server
2. Do a checkout of your web project to a working folder somewhere else
3. Do your svn updates as necessary,
4. After each update, so a svn export to your public_html folder

If your project is huge, the export might take a while since it will be
the entire project, but if you aren't doing it that often this might be
a convenient approach. Personally, I just do an fresh export of my entire
project, zip it up, whack my entire project off the server, upload the
and unzip. That way I know I'm testing against exactly what I have in my
no surprises.

I've turned this into a "this isn't a subclipse question, it's a general
question" type of topic. Hopefully this is helpful to someone.
