Re: Want to set up SVN for a web app

Hi Guilio,

Here is one question that might help me and be easier for the
subversion people to answer.

OK let's assume I know what VC systems do in general. Maybe not the
specific commands used by each system, but the general idea.

Now, when you are developing a desktop app, you normally care about
code in two places. One, on your computer, and two on a central server
shared by your co-workers.

That makes for a simple model. You test the app locally, and when you
are happy, you try to merge your code back into the central server. OK

But what about a web app? When the testing is done on the server? In
this case, there is code in THREE locations.

One, on your hard disk where you are editing the files. Two, on the
server for testing. And three, on another location on the server, for
live use (production).

How does SVN fit into that? What is the "Best practice" (for someone
who highly favours simplicity and ease of use) for this kind of set up?

I still can't get my head around how a VC, would be set up for a web

I appreciate my original question maybe wasn't so good. And I
appreciate that you said you don't personally use SVN for web apps.
Perhaps this question will get a better answer :)

Thanks :)
