Best way to update website

114 New Member
Hi Friends,

I have two HTML websites and I am regularly making lots of changes in one of them. Now I want the 2nd website should be updated automatically so that I don't need to update the website twice.

Here are two websites:




The only difference in both websites is the header and footer. Rest everything is the same.

I want that when I make any changes in example.com, it should automatically updated in php.net but I need to keep header and footer different for both the websites. The rest of the content should be the same for both websites.

Please help me on this and advise how can I do this?

Well you could just have two footer/header files and store them each in their own website folder and basically just have all your content in one file (and your headers/footers in separate ones) and then include all the files like this:
For webiste 1:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. include( 'header.php');
  2. include( 'content.php');
  3. include( 'footer.php');
For webiste 2:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. include( 'header.php');
  2. include( '../website_1/content.php');
  3. include( 'footer.php');
This is assuming your websites are on the same server and in the same folder (eg public_html). So each website calls the header.php and footer.php in it's own directory, but both websites call the content of website 1. I hope that made sense.

if you have both domains on different servers you may as well use an ftp client that is able to sync folders. though it's not done automaticly it's just 2 or 3 clicks.

Or, I'm just throwing it out there, you could try using a database and take the pain of having to edit files directly away? That makes the most sense.

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. $page->get_header();
  3. $page->get_content();
  5. $page->get_footer();
$page->get_content would make a request to your database (perhaps through a model) for the content, preparing it for display.

Hello! I currently have a site online. I added more features to my datagrid page, so users can update and stuff. I though I could just copy the aspx, aspx.vb and the server page including the web config, and paste then on the server. At c:\intepub\wwwroot\website. But now I get a runtime error when I go to that page. What is the best way to update a site after maiking modifications on the developer machine? TIA
