Releasing New Versions of a Self-Written PHP application

Postby mammal » Tue Oct 07, 2003 12:01 pm

Does anyone have any tips on cataloging new versions of a web application and swopping easily between one version and another. i.e. PHPApplication 1.0, 1.12 etc.

Need to get organised with releasing new versions and backing up old versions in case of new bugs and being able to view different versions easily. Perhaps using text files to look up which file to use?

Please help, cant find anything on Google!!!

The three little letters you're looking for are CVS, or Concurrent Versions System. Check out CVSHome.org. CVS takes a lot of getting used to, but once you do it's very powerful.

if you using Windows OS i recommend to you use or Microsoft's Visual SourceSafe or SourceOffSite. Couse more intersting and flexible.

Eww.. might as well use ASP.NET while you're at it. I don't know about "more interesting", but CVS is pretty damn flexible once you know how to use it. Not to mention *cough* FREE.
