looking for the best way to update my production server

hello,
we have been using netbeans/php to develop a new site and using svn, version 1.6.11 for source control. (this is the first time i have used svn)
We are now ready to start testing on our production server.
I was thinking i would like to build and update the production server from svn only thinking this is probably the best way to keep control.
So after a little looking i found that the best thing to do was export
so on my production server i did

svn export svn://mysvndomain/home/svnrepos/events html --force

this did expected and build the site. So now i am wondering. how i update it?
if i do the same command as above it will over write some production configuration files.

what do other people do?
thanks for any help
randy

I usually do a checkout on the webserver:

~www$ svn co svn://mysvndomain/home/svnrepos/events html

Open in new window


And then eitherremove all .svn directorie in the tree, or block them at webserver level so I can commit any changes made in the local tree.
