The server side needs subversion installed and a post-commit hook that
will then do an update (or export) of the folder(s) you are interested
in. The contents of the hook script depend on the server platform, but
there should be plenty of samples available (there are hook templates,
scripts in the contrib folder, and searching on Google will
undoubtedly turn up even more).

That can be handled by tagging or SVNcopying the approved changes to a
branch and having the post-commit hook watch the 'production' branch.
