    How to preserve content when updating production

    Hi all,

    I have a Umbraco website that sits in a staging environment and production. The CMS on staging does not get updated with content because we only use staging for functional tests...

    My question is when copying staging files over to production, how do I preserve everything that sits in the CMS in prod. ? Because as I copy staging files to prod, the CMS obviously also copies over, but I do not want that.

    And I also don't want to update the CMS in staging and prod. every time...

    What is the best way to resolve this..?

    Thank you.

    Hi Kyle

    Have a look at uSync - free version -

    Allows you to move changes like DocTypes, new DataTypes between environments without overwriting content

    or there is a paid-for package uSync 'complete':

    that will allow you to move content between environments...

    But usually

    You have your production site, where content is added and updated, and your development environment separate, and use uSync to move development changes into production, without overwriting content.

    If you ever need to 'refresh' development, then usually you just take a backup of live database and restore to development...
