Customer: for your first deployment on production server, let our sys admin show you how we deploy packages.

Customer's admin : let's go !
*download archive*
*delete the entire server folder*
*unzip archive on the folder*
*opens Internet Explorer for check if the website works*

CA: That's all
Me: 0_0

    What's wrong with that?

    @Naptic He does not shut the server, not even backup the file somewhere else. And maybe it's not really clean to use this unusual method on production servers. I was used to see deployment with git, but never something like this.

    Deployment at my job is just the same, only current files aren't removed.

    @Naptic lots of things are wrong, several on the top of my head :

    1) server isn't in maintenance mode. Any interaction with it can return incoherent resultats (File A copied reference File B not copied = you have a problem)
    2) no backup, which is bad if anything goes wrong
    3) no easy rollback either, since he isn't using a CVS
    4) no database migration (if there is a database)
    5) cache isn't cleared (if there is a cache)

    There isn't any script runned either (minification, image compression ...), so either it's already done, or not at all.

    @toomanybugs what's wrong with deployment per git?
  • 0
    @DataJockey absolutely nothing. Did I made a mistake in my comment ? I wanted to say that I usually deploy with git, and that was the first time I see a deployment by removing all.

    @toomanybugs oh, ok. No. I just missunderstood it. I thought you mean something like: per git it is bad, and this is even worst.

    @toomanybugs the way you phrased it was it. "I was used to see deployment with git, but never ..." is usually a phrasing you use to say "i saw bad cases but never something bad as this."

    @darksideplease oh, I see what you mean. I apologies for this mistake, and thank you for this explanation.
