    One of our clients has a website running on a production server, where the content gets updated at regular intervals. We've developed that site in Sitefinity Standard Edition 3.6. Recently, the client asked us a to implement a new enhancement on to the site which required some additional pages and content to be added. The content was added on the development server. Now we wish to syncrhonize the newly added content with the content on the production server. We do not want the client to manually update the content again on the live site. Backup-Restore is also not an option as the development machine does not have the live content.

    Please suggest if there is a way out !

    Hello Saumitra,

    1. You can use Visual Studio Schema Comparison.
    2. You can use some replication third party tool that merges the content between your development and production. Generally it synchronize all changes between staging and production database.
    3. Update staging and production databases directly from SQL Server Enterprise Manager or SQL Server Management Studio ( this could cause a lot of problems if something goes wrong)

    Sitefinity 4.0 will come with built in comparison tool between your staging and production.

    Best wishes,

    Hi Sarah Masood,

    If I got the requirement correctly, you need your client to login to Sitefinity back-end, is this correct? If it is, then you can provide a link to yourproject.com/Sitefinity/Login.aspx - this should bring the login form. 

    I hope this helps. 

    Sincerely yours,
