I have a website where users register and become members. Naturally I create a PW user for every new member, and use PW's login functionality.
I want to go live with the website, but also want to continue development. I have a lot of ideas and would like to update the website with new templates and stuff once a day for a few weeks now, and then maybe once a week while adding new features.
I usually export my entire local database when I update the website, and then import it on the server. But if I do that, every new website member on the live website will get lost.
Does anyone have a good idea on how to approach this? I thought about exporting all the members to file before I import the new database, and then import them again, but:
a) It just doesn't feel safe.
b) I can't figure out how to set their passwords right during import. Export gives me hashed passwords.
Cheers and thanks!
