I need a good web application migration process

We use SVN to handle all of our web application development. We now want
to move our project onto the client's server. We have been asked to come
up with a migration strategy for future projects.

 

Here is what I came up with:

 

Initial install:

 

1. At the end of development cycle create a release tag to go on the
live server.

2. On the live server install and run a svn client and download the
release tag revision

 

Updates:

- When it's necessary to update the site, create a new release revision
and then update folders or files on the server using the svn client

 

Recovery:

- If something goes wrong use svn to pull down the previous release
revision

 

 

How does that sound? Is there anything built into SVN to help me in the
process? Any other methods?
