How do you move your code from your desktop development environment to the testing server? And then how do you deploy the live version of the site once QA has approved the test version? This often involves much more than simply copying or rsync-ing a directory tree from one server to another. Path names and file permissions may change; license files for the dev server may be different than license files on the live server; and who knows what else...
Wouldn't it be great if you could build your live site with a single click?
Using Subversion and Phing we'll create a build-process that automates these tasks and removes the error-prone human element from the equation as much as possible...someone still has to click the button.
