In SVN you usually work in a directory called /trunk.

I think you could keep a copy of /trunk called /LIVE and then when you
would want to
move a file to the live server you would merge thoses specific files
from trunk to LIVE:

But this is not really how people usually work with Subversion.

Probably a better approach would be to keep all the files in /LIVE
then for every new
feature you would like to add create a branch in /branches/feature_x
Once you are ready with that feature you will merge it back to /LIVE

This is not exactly the same workflow but I think it will be cleaner
to work like this.
