Don't use Resilio Sync. Other recommended tools?
FrancisChung posted a topic in PubHi there, I have an older Macbook Pro which I'm trying to use as a Desktop Machine for the occasional work-at-home machine. I was using Resilio Sync to sync my projects between my main laptop and every time there's a problem with the sync, it seems to delete random files and folders. So anyone using Resilio Sync, think again. I would have used rsync but if I recall correctly, I couldn't the get the command to work with my other laptop (rsync wouldn't accept my destination path). I also have some files I sync between the main laptop and my Windows box, so that was another reason why I opted for Resilio Sync at the time. So after spending a few hours recovering my files today, I've decided enough is enough (3rd time it's failed) and am looking for a new way to sync files between 2 OSX Laptops and a Windows box. Anyone have a foolproof, stress-free solution that they use? Thanks!
Best practice for staging to live database synchronization
evanmcd posted a topic in General SupportHi all, My team has built a few ProcessWire sites, and we LOVE it - it is now our go to CMS. However, we have come up against the same issue on each site and wonder if/how any of you are managing it. I don't think the issue is entirely specific to ProcessWire, but due to the structure of the way PW stores data it may require an answer that only applies to PW. It's the issue of keeping a staging site database in synch with a live site. To illustrate: we start developing a new section, or modifying the functionality of a current section. All the while the client is making content changes on the current site, and in so doing changing the data in many different tables. Is there an approach, other than manually noting which tables have changed during our update, that people are using to manage this situation? With WordPress, for example, all of the content ends up in one big table, the structure of which doesn't change, so updates aren't that tricky. With PW data and structure being intermingled, it makes it a bit more tricky to manage. I'd really appreciate knowing more about how people manage this, even if it's just confirming that there isn't a better way than doing it manually. Thanks.
