    Default Automatically upload files to server on save

    Good day all,

    How would I configure contribute3 to Automatically upload files from our
    Development Server to our Production Server once the users click on publish
    button afer they are done updating their webpages. Keeping in mind that the
    user do have publishing capabilities.

    thnx

    CPS alone will not do it. RoboCopy is the more trustworthy solution. And, did I mention, it's free?

    How did you setup RoboCopy to accomplish this?

    We configured Robocopy to not only copy, but synchronize our staging server
    (golden copy) with the production server. Three times daily, the batch file
    with all parameters is automatically launched by the Scheduler on the staging
    server. We have been using this for nearly a year with nearly 100% accuracy.
    The only gotcha being that occasionally a .LCK with hidden attributes will get
    published, which won't allow the "real" file to be published. I'm researching
    this issue now.

    Note that we publish only three times daily - you can tweak the frequency with
    Scheduler - and does not happen when you click Publish in Contribute. When we
    need something published immediately, we use Dreamweaver - the Local site =
    Staging server, the Remote site = Production server. Click the "Put" button,
    NEVER the Checkin button.

    When I get some free time, I will write a JavaScript plugin for Contribute
    that will publish a selected file from Staging to Prod.
