Hi Andreas, As I indicated in a previous email, I inherited a system that was primarily configured through the ZMI. Recognizing that application development through the ZMI imposes certain limitations (such as rudimentary version control), I managed the development in a manner that you suggested in your initial response. Given these facts, how do you suggest I improve my approach?
Based on the two suggestions that you generously offered, I am still puzzled as to how this problem can be solved. Clearly, transferring the Data.fs from the test server to the production server is insufficient given the user data mismatch. Therefore, it would seem that my only option, given the circumstances would be to manually replicate the configuration in the production server. However, my better judgment leads me to think that this isn't sensible. Is there no alternative?
