I'm usually weeks, or month ahead of myself. The code I have in my local environment is looking forward towards knew features, new ideas, etc etc. Every week or two I grab a mirror of the online database (or I could connect straight to it of course), and WHEN new code is ready to upload, I do it via FTP.
If I had a LOT of uploads, I'd write something that does it for me, comparing dates or something. I do have a web-based control panel & content management system for some sections of some sites, allowing me (or the client) to add / edit / delete / arrange some content... End of the day, it's each to their own -- but I know that I wouldn't want to be directly editing live code, data or modules on the fly. I like to work on a mirror, test, test, test, upload, test.
