Re: best production practice?

What i meant is that, we have the code running on a production machine. Now and then, that code gets changed, and sometimes, it's content gets out of sync with whats on production (ie. for example. someone edit directly on production, for a hotfix (i know this is bad, but fast for changing a simple text, link, etc...) and forget to do the changes in cvs.

I would like a way to know when the code on production isn't the same as the one in the source control (not to update production, but to update the repository). So far, the best way i thought of doing this was to have a cvs client on the production servers, and periodically (cron job) do a "cvs -n update", logging the results.

Now that means all our sites will have CVS folders, large updates will go throught cvs update, etc.

I would like to know if that's the best method of doing what i would like.

Hello CVS users,

The company i work for is having difficulties keeping production and the repository in sync'.

Not sure what you mean by production and repository in sync ?  Did you
mean to say you want to have two repositories that need to be kept in sync ?
If yes you may want to look at for keeping
multiple replicas in sync.

I would like to know, what is the best practice to achieve this? I'm thinking of having a cvs client on production, and having the production code being a checked out copy, with a cron job doing a cvs -n update, and emailing the results. But I am not sure thats the best way, as

Looks like you want to determine what changed against a poduction tag/branch ? If yes
you might want to create a tag and diff against that.

other problems might occur with this solution. I would like to know if any of you have a better solution, or see the pitfalls in such solution.

Thanks for your help,
Best regards,
