I considered Zsyncher a while ago -- the problem there though is that there are many things in the two sites that should not be synched -- it seemed more of a synch everything kind of tool. Maybe I should look at it again. That would be a long term project though. > > If you can't install ZSyncer on the remote Zope, you can transfer > objects the "old" way: using Export / Import from the ZMI. > But even there, you need *some* kind of remote access in order to put > the .zexp file in the import/ directory of your Zope installation. I can have a person at the remote site perform tasks -- the person there is a competent systems person(though not fluent in Zope) -- in fact that is what I am trying to do. I am not intending to eliminate intervention completely at the site, just limit the number of steps and potential errors/miscommunications. Import/export via zexp doesn't really solve the problem of updating a smattering of files over the ZODB, unless I am missing something about using it. It might even introduce more issues than it solves. _______________________________________________ Zope maillist - Zope@zope.org http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope ** No cross posts or HTML encoding! ** (Related lists - http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-announce http://mail.zope.org/mailman/listinfo/zope-dev )
