In this post, we will go over how to set up the Deployment module (http://drupal.org/project/deploy) on Drupal 6.
The Deployment module is meant to provide an easy way to stage and push content from one server to another. But, as the project page states, “There are a lot of moving parts and while it’s not “hard” to setup, there are several steps to go through.”
While setting up Deployment for one of our clients, we documented our process. Most of the information found in this post was informed by the documentation on the project page.
