Centre For Design, eZ Publish Case Study - Deployment

Deployment Deployment involves the configuration of the live web server to mirror the configuration of the development server and the copying of the entire eZ publish directory to the live server. With the CFD project, we were able to run the new site in parallel with the existing site and simply reconfigure the DNS to point to the new site once the client gave approval. Our experience with CMS-based sites is that the client must start content population before the entire site is finished. Before the site is opened to the client to start content population it is important to ensure that the underlying structures are sound; once content population starts changes in the underlying content types may result in data having to be input again.
