Using SVN to Easily Update Online Project(s)

I guess all of you are already know that Version Control System is a good tools to manage your project files. Be it a collaboration project or your own single man project. I have several online projects, some are my own projects, some are paid projects. Some I’m the only developer while some others are collaboration with friends or my employer’s staff. I manage my project’s script using SVN. I also set up sub-domain for testing purpose.

For example, I’ve a gambas snippet site called gambas world. It has sub-domain, let’s call it devel.gambasworld.com (It’s not the real one, because I don’t want you to know it >:) ). For both of this, I create a subversion repository on this site. I also has local copy to work on it while off-line. I usually develop it on my laptop before testing it using real data from the main site on my development site. After feature(s) I want is ironed out, I update the main site from SVN.

This technique helped me greatly, because I don’t have to remember what file(s) is updated since last upload. It also help me reduce bandwidth usage. Because I don’t have to upload all files just to make the site updated!. While on collaboration project, it help me find out who edit what file(s).
