It might not have all the bells and whistles, but I don’t have to worry about installation, migration, security, etc. A few minutes here and a few minutes there, and we’re talking real time!

But then again, do a fresh export, compare that with current running version and the untouched previous version: you’re good to go.

This allows me to backup my site via storing the svn diffs, and to generate patches to send upstream, when needed.

Or in other words, the changes relative to my personal site should be fully contained inside the wp-content/plugins. If the svn diff command doesn’t return empty, then something wrong is happening on the wordpress codebase – either a bug, or a missing hook in the code.

Then again, maybe I’m very wrong.

I should have reloaded the page before posting. And maybe I should not post this excuse? Oh well…

SVN reports this as a conflict and asks you to resolve it.

So your practice is a very nice way to update a wordpress blog. I’m going to look into it as well. Thanks for the tip. :)

If the file is unchanged, it just goes away. If you did any modifications, there will be a file.php.mine or a file.php.rXXXX.

So, my steps are:
# update local copy with remove files
$ svn up
# check if there’s any conflict…
$ svn status | grep -E “^C ”
# …or just change for the >>>>
$ grep ‘
