    This is in the coding forum because I figure the other forums wouldn't have any experience with things like subversion, Git, etc.

    I'm lazy. I don't like to FTP/SSH and I really don't feel the need to, it's 2009 and we have cruise control, deployers and version trackers. For my static sites I use Git and Capistrano (deployer).

    So basically I edit the site locally, type in 1-2 commands and the changes are automatically synced on the remote host. This is great, but these tools are meant to be used for content and not the actual database (since the local db is gonna differ from the remote/production db).

    This also has the added benefit of acting as a semi-decent backup system. i.e., new server = just a few commands to deploy from local to prod, no DLing/UPing.

    With wordpress, it's all DB driven. I looked at PHPMyVersion but the project looks dead and some dudes who were also playing with it said it was buggy.

    I'm basically looking for something that would sync changes between databases. So if I make edits to plugin options locally, I'd like that to sync with the production database and not have it affect the comments and other settings in that db.
