Question on Configuration Management

  Asked By: Kassandra    Date: Mar 16    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 883

I am having a question regarding Configuration Management. I have a live
site where users keep changing the content all the time. Now I have a Dev
environment, where I have the same pages, where I will be making the
changes. But, as told earlier, when I am making the change to a page in Dev,
the same page in the live site might have been changed. So, is there a way
to ensure that I don't overwrite the changes in the live site, when I deploy
/ move my changed page to production server from Dev? I researched, but
couldn't get much help.

SharePoint isn't designed to allow content  changes to be made in both a Dev
and production  environment. It does support using a dev  environment to
create artifacts like web parts, event recievers, workflows, etc that are
then deployed to the production site  as solutions. All content changes
should be made directly on the production system, not in a Dev environment.
One of the strengths of SharePoint is that it expects users  to add and
maintain content to the system not developers. Developers should
concentrate on building better tools and infrastructure to be used by end
users to maintain content.
