Three Phase Workflow
For every Production Site, deevop generates three phases: Develop, Demo and Production
These phases are completely independent from each other and are conveniently coloured so that you know at every moment where you are.
Each one has its own subdomain, too:
The Demo and Production environments are identical and run in your current website hosting, so you can be completely sure that what works on Demo, will work on Production, before going live.
Here is where the actual work is done. This is a password protected environment that nobody can access except the members of your team. It is excluded from search engines, too (in case you remove the password and link to it from somewhere else).
This phase is also password protected but with a different one intended for the client.
This phase has 3 purposes:
This is the live environment, the public version of your site. Once your site is live, you can work with it in many different ways.
In order to avoid inconsistencies or overwriting data whilst updating/upgrading/modifying your website in the Develop environment, please check the possible workflows and sync strategies:
