SourceSafe Automatic Web Deployment
Posted on 2003-11-20
We recently installed SourceSafe 6.0c on our server to help us manage and control development on our website. We are using VS.NET to develop ASP.NET (VB.NET code behind) pages on our local machines. We are connected to the VSS database through a program called VSS Connect, which is a TCP/IP based interface for all SourceSafe commands.
Everything works fine; we can check out and check in files..bla bla bla. OUR PROBLEM: we want files that are checked in to be automatically deployed to the live site (we have no need for a dev server). The project is configured as a web project in VSS Admin and we CAN deploy the site from the server manually.
Is there ANY way to setup SourceSafe so that it will automatically deploy checked-in pages so that they can be instantly viewed on the web?
Last note, we currently check files in and then FTP the changed files to the servers web directory.
