    Deploying from Development to Live Environment


    As the title states, what are the implications of deploying from Development to Live.

    I currently have two environments (Dev and Live) Live is currently in use and no changes are being made to it directly. On the Dev environment changes are being made both with the document types, styling and code.

    They both have their own databases.

    If I was to want to move the development to live can I just copy everything over? What happens with the databases? The Live database is upto date however the development one isn't.

    Any help with this would be appreciated.

    Hi Bry

    There is an official package for moving such changes between Umbraco environments, called Umbraco Courier, - however it is V7 only - There will be a new 'on premises' deployment solution called 'Umbraco Deploy' for V8:

    Hosting and developing your site on Umbraco Cloud will allow you to create multiple environments, and move changes between them:

    If you are unable to take advantage of Umbraco Cloud then for moving development changes that are stored inside Umbraco, eg doc types etc then take a look at uSync... which has a shiny new version for V8:
