How do I copy my dev site to my live site?

Many of us maintain two different web sites, one is the live site and one is a development site. The development site is used to test out new code or a new design before it is ready to go live.

At a certain point, when your dev site is ready to go live, you need to copy your dev site to your live. Once you are done, your live site will be identical to your dev site. And, you can now continuing developing your dev site for the next iteration of your site.

Drupal

If you are using a Drupal web site, you can install the backup and migrate module (and perhaps the backup and migrate files module as well).

Manually

Manual migration requires copying the files from the dev site to the live site and creating a backup or "dump" of your database to be imported over the database of the current live site.
