    Hi,

    I have been working with Sitefinity off and on for almost 2 months and am now getting ready to plan a production deployment. I am currently working on a test environment; when I move to production, should I be doing my page updates from that production environment, or do I leave the Sitefinity environment on my test server and have the web config point to a database on the production server? Also, while I am working on my pages, I see that the paths to images, flash objects, etc include the path from the Sitefinity folder structure. For example, the following path is in one of the pages: /WebSites/GLAdvisor/Files/glAdvisorHome.swf

    That path won't exist on my production server, right? Won't I want my flash objects to be in something like "/files/glAdvisorHome.swf"? Won't my IIS be pointing my top level domain to the "/WebSites/GLAdvisor" folder?

    Thanks for the help
    Paul

    Hello Paul Dench,

    should I be doing my page updates from that production environment


    Sitefinity pages are internally created and pages' links should be automatically resolved. Since Sitefinity 3.6 we use dynamic links where we get the GUID of the items and resolve the url, so you should not have problems related to any built -in resources. If you have entered somewhere harcoded links that points to your current domain/virtual directory you need to update these references manually.

    Best wishes,

    Thanks for the quick reply...when you say "built-in resources", would that include anything that anything in the images and documents libraries?

    Hi Paul Dench,

    I meant built in controls and implementation. If you have used somewhere static links they will not be resolved by Sitefinity. We use dynamic links to ensure that project migration will not break everything.

    All the best,
