I ve learned there are a number of things to consider when moving a site from your development environment, which I ll call dev from here on out, to production, called prod. For instance, where did you develop the site Was it developed locally on your own machine, on a web host at a subdomain such as http://dev.example.com, or at the actual prod location (http://example.com) If you set up the site at any other location than prod (which I recommend, because you should never develop or configure a site when it s live), you will need to move both the site files and the database from one location to the other. This means minimally you will have two versions of the same site, one for dev and one for prod, and each will have its own set of files and database (I ll discuss how to set up a staging environment in cPanel later in the chapter). This is the best method to use when building Drupal sites for a number of reasons:

Your prod database is separate from your dev database, which means if anything breaks while you re developing, it won t bring down the production site. After the site is live, you can test modules and code changes before committing to production. This protects you against breaking your prod site when upgrading Drupal core from 7.1 to 7.x (discussed in the next chapter).

Having two versions of the same site presents both some opportunities and some challenges. Because you have two separate databases, it is possible to enable development tools on dev that are disabled on prod. For example, when developing, you may have the following modules enabled:

One consideration when moving a site to production is determining which development modules to keep enabled and which to disable. My recommendation is to disable everything that end users of the production site will not use. Some people may opt to set permissions on prod so end users can t access certain modules, which are still enabled. I don t recommend this, simply because I tend to err on the side of caution; why would I want to leave a development tool enabled on a production site that allows users unfettered system access Although Drupal is a relatively secure system, there may be undiscovered security flaws in a module that a malicious user could exploit to take down your site, and no one wants to own the first site that is taken down by this flaw. Another consideration when moving a site to production is user permissions. If you are a single site builder and build the entire site logged in as user #1 (not recommended) or as a user with the role administrator (recommended), you have full access to all enabled modules. This means the functionality that you see and interact with will not be available to an anonymous or authenticated user. I can t tell you how many times I ve pushed a site to production and then received a call from a worried client, XYZ functionality is not working ! Navigate to People, and click the PERMISSIONS tab to update permissions. Change the password for user #1 and any other user accounts used during development. When developing a site, I tend to use a generic one-size-fits-all password for my account. Although people may call this a bad security practice, I ve found that it tends to work well with my development practices. This means I absolutely must change the password when the site goes to production; there are many popular tools to generate passwords, such as FreeRandom Password Generator (www.freerandompasswordgenerator.com). Some people advocate using OpenID to log in to a site and may use it for the superadmin account. I don t recommend this, simply because (once again) I err on the side of caution; if someone hacks this OpenID account, that person will be able to access any of sites associated with the account. If you are absolutely paranoid about security, one further action to take is to block user #1 from logging in to the site; navigate to People to block and unblock accounts. If you choose to do this, make sure you have a second user account on the site with permission to administer users (People PERMISSIONS); otherwise, you will not be able to unblock the superuser. Finally, consider which modules and configuration changes you will enable on prod that are not enabled on dev. Some examples include performance caching (Configuration Performance), the Google Analytics module (http://drupal.org/project/google_analytics), and the Boost module (http://drupal.org/project/boost). You may also want to enable the Backup and Migrate module (http://drupal.org/project/backup_migrate), which allows you to configure automatic database dumps based on a configurable schedule.
