Php From Development To Production

Recommended Posts

Soon I will be moving my test site to a live web server. It's the first time I'm doing this and I was trying to come up with a checklist of things to do when I go live.


Here's what I have so far:

  • change how errors are displayed
  • change error reporting
  • set up admin/password for database
  • make sure sensitive files are outside the root folder

I'm sure there's more, what did I miss?

Well, it kind of depends upon the site, but that's a good start. I would also:


- Check permissions on any open files or folders

- Password protect any folders that need it

- Restrict access to any folders that don't need to be publicly available (like an includes folder)

- Test the site thoroughly, including making errors to see the result
