Don't do more work than you have to - Use auto deploy tools


Human beings can't remember everything but machines can. Everyday you work on a project and changed many files and altered database tables but forgot some things to update in live server while depoloying code. Use some third party tools to deploy your php applications without missing small change or db updates. There are many such tools available, capistrano is one of the famous tool for automate the deployment process. Many people think it is only for RoR applications deployment but it is for all.
