I started using Geany for PHP development, working

Need help with setting to achieve the following:
1- Setting up my working directory
2- Setting up the target director (/var/www), the place where the
target files will be copied to, once I finished a specific milestone,
so the code will be available for usage
3- How to do the above copy
It sounds like you will be editing locally for a remote server, is that
correct? If not, please ignore the following :)
Hi Ross, you might be right, I read it as being on the same machine,
but its not clear.
Can I suggest that instead, you create a local copy of the website and
set that as your project base folder? Then you can add version control
to that folder, edit/checkin/edit/revert etc. and finally load to the
Good advice that applies in all circumstances. Try the Geanyvc plugin
(not that I use it myself, shame).
For load to remote, the nicest way is if you can use
control repo as the master and then simply pull an update into your
remote server. Alternatively, you can FTP or scp your files from your
development copy to your server.
Yes, for remotes, Geany can be configured to run any of those commands.
Worst case (and I really mean *worst*) is mounting the remote server
using something like gvfs, and setting that as your Geany base folder. I
hear that some people like doing it that way; every time I hear that I
look nervously at my ever-depleting supply of bourbon...
Send that bourbon here for even mentioning the possibility :), It is
too easy to lose files with a minor network glitch or get unexpectedly
