Best practice for development using vs2010 with SVN and FTP



I'm working on a project using VS2010 with AnkhSVN and Filezilla for upload. I'm new into team development but my major issue is:

After committing to SVN, I additionally need to remember and manually upload every single changed file using ftp client.

Any best practice on straightforward publishing e.g. 'commit and upload simultaneous' is deeply appreciated.

best practice in creating a development machine


hi, I have been working on sharepoint for sometime now..I have mastered the sharepoint designer workflow. however, it is kinda limited...and I am thinking of exploring the backend development of MOSS, I have been posting some enquiries on this forum, and came to know about visual studio workflow and event features.

The thing is, I only have two servers in my organisation, MOSS runs on one server and SQL server runs on another. Visual studio isn't installed on the MOSS server, and there is no development taking place in MOSS server right now.

Q1 - I have got another development machine, installed with windows server 2008 and MOSS and Visual Studio, but I have named the machine differently as all the machines in my organization are connected to a domain. I think I also made a mistake by creating a different site collection instead of using a similar name as the current server. Can I know what are the best practices used when it comes to planning a development machine?

Q2 - I have created a simple event feature testing thingy on the development machine and it works, how do I export it over to MOSS server, cause..I have mentioned the site url in the C# code, but the exact url in  the server is different.  Is there some kinda guide that I can refer to..should I install visual studio on the server itself ( wierd )

need some advice
