Pushing content changes from Production to Dev

Dan Friesen asked on August 26, 2014 23:40

Is there a recommended way to push content changes made in Production (by content editors) back to a Dev environment? We have the typical Dev -> Stage -> Prod environments that we use to release new features, using Kentico staging/syncing and merging new code. If Production content changes are not synced up with Dev at some point, there is the potential of overwriting content in Production with stale content in Dev.

That's more of an internal process for you, your dev team and content editors. Typically content between staging and prod is synchronized. Although if the client has workflow and publishing in place, there really is no need for them to edit content on staging (or dev for that matter).

Any time I start a new large(r) task or modification I'll typically take a backup of prod and restore the database over staging and test to ensure the content and such isn't stale.
