I am wondering what is the best method to update a php intense site without interrupting service to customers.
I manage a site that does a small amount of selling. When I’m fiddling around with scripts and debugging these php/MySQL pages, I would rather not do it on the “live” site. I’m not really into the “Sorry, our site is unavailable from 2 pm PST to 8 pm PST” method either… Any suggestions? Setting up mirrors? Copying to another domain?
I would work on my offline stuff, but my php and mysql require me to be online… Don’t they?
Suggestions would be very much appreciated.
