Good Morning

As a professional developer I use professional tools like Git to manage e.g. source files on the Server and other tools to manage Application-Settings, in this context Joomla-Website settings which are saved in the Database (and not content).

Are there any best practices for

  • manage source file versions during development
  • deploy
  • and managing configuration changes

for Joomla Websites?

Thanks a lot for any help! kind regards, Thomas


The webhosting company SiteGround (siteground.com) has a Joomla-specific Git that works pretty well along with a "Staging" tool that allows you to create working copies of the site, make changes, then push the site live. (I use Siteground but have no other connection to them.) - Greg

  • Hi Greg, thank you very much for this Link!, it sounds great and we will have a look at them. – Tom May 30 '16 at 17:26

  • Thank you very much, AlexVega, for taking time to answer my question!, unfortunately my question was not precise enough: the Development itself is no problem - but it looks like Joomla has no concept to get deployed from a Repository (Git, TFS, ...) and there is probably no available concept to manage Joomla configuration changes (the configuration which is stored in the Database) – Tom May 29 '16 at 13:52
