    Scheduled Publishing using Courier 2

    Hi

    Does anyone know whether it's possible to schedule publishing from a staging site to a live site using Courier 2? I have a client who would like to publish certain content to Live at 12am.

    In addition, we also support multiple cultures, so they would like to have different schedules for different timezones.

    Thanks,

    Aileen

    Hi Aileen,

    In theory I can tell you this its possible, but it's not something that simply works 'out the box'.

    Courier packages up it's changes to one set of files and it's possible to deploy these using command line tools, or build servers.

    So you would need to build a script, a scheduled task or a build server process in place for the deployment to happen at the time you required.

    It might be worth noting you would need the full version of Courier 2 not the lite version.

    Hope this helps letting you know it's possible, even though it's not technically a solution.

    No problem, keep your eye on this page http://codegarden11.com/sessions/day-2/slot-two/team-development-with-andor-without-courier-20.aspx Per did a great Courier 2 session recently and the video should be up soon, will probably help with your project.

    Aileen, did you ever figure out how to schedule a publishing?

    Hi Mitch

    The plan we had was to create a custom dashboard within Umbraco which would allow you to select the:

    • Courier package
    • Time and date
    • Destination server

    Then we'd create a windows service which would check the saved schedules and run the courier deployment application.

    We haven't gotten round to doing any of this yet and as far as I know there is no automatic way to schedule deployments.

    Cheers

    Aileen
