Multiple Connections on Contribute? - Macromedia Contribute General Discussion

Well, we have a development server and a production server. When they are done testing and developing we prefer that they still update the development with the latest content in case of a server problem with the production. The excuse in the past for not doing this was that web curators are using Contribute and can't update that way. My question is...is it possible for a web developer to connect to two servers to update one website? IE they make the changes and when they click publish...it updates both the site on development and the production site. If not, why ...

    Default Multiple Connections on Contribute?

    Well, we have a development server and a production server. When they are done
    testing and developing we prefer that they still update the development with
    the latest content in case of a server problem with the production. The excuse
    in the past for not doing this was that web curators are using Contribute and
    can't update that way.

    My question is...is it possible for a web developer to connect to two servers
    to update one website? IE they make the changes and when they click
    publish...it updates both the site on development and the production site. If
    not, why can't they just update development and then update production? Do you
    have to order some sort of connection key for each site?

    I'm new to contribute so forgive me...

    Contribute can have connections to different servers, you just need to provide
    the proper connection information. But changes on one server cannot be
    automatically ted on another. easiest way is to copy the latest to or
    over the older versions.
