Re: [TYPO3-english] update and synchronizing procedure

Hi and thanks Sergey!

I do that way too, especially when the site is not very large. But when it is 
and it has many custom made extensions, it is safer to update in non-production 
environment first. But I guess it's better to stay just kind of test site, and 
then update all again in the production site. So yes, maybe your way is the 
best way, if there is no way to synchronize the content only :)

Don't try to do 2 things at the same time :) Here's how I do:

1. I create the visual layout + html + css
2. Create a separate folder's tree with home and sub-page(s) (create more if 
you need 3-4-5 templates)
3. Create/adjust TYPO3 template for new layout/design (it could take a while, 
but content is updating - they do not see my separate tree)
4. Time to upgrade!
5. Switch templates from my 'development' tree to current site
6. Upgrade.
7. Check everything

Take care! ;)

I'm trying to figure out best practice for updating large sites both visually 
(html + ts templates) and TYPO3 version too.

1. I create the visual layout + html + css
2. make duplicate installation and copy and import database
3. adjust new layout to duplicate installation
4. update the system and check everything
5. publish new site

Now the steps from 2-5 might take awhile. So the problem arises when the site 
content is update meanwhile.

Do you have any recommendations how to synchronize/move the old site's new 
content to new site?

The version change in question now is mostly 4.4.x->4.5.x

Thanks in advance.

With kind regards
