    Is there any guidance on how to set up dev environment for a 2 or more development when developing using Sitefinity ?  How to resolve/share DB changes [since content is stored in DB] when you wnat to use a version control system.  We are using valut as our Verison control system.

    Hello capton,

    Sitefinity VSS management should not be different than any other ASP.Net web site project. Toolbox information is stored in configuration files. You should treat configuration files as you would web.cofig. In this case you should checkout ToolboxesConfig.config file make the change and then checkin. So next time other developers get the latest version will have the same control in toolbox of their local Sitefinity version. Merging the data could be done with a database schema comparison and replication tools.

    Best wishes,

    Did you figure this out? I have the same question -- and, I tried using Red-Gate SQL Compare and SQL Data Compare but most of the differences are GUID-related and too many ambiguities to see which rows to merge and which not. What did you learn?

    Hi Michael,

    For data merging you can use the Sitefinity Site Synch module.

    Kind regards,
