Sep 18, 2014 @ 11:20:04

Matthew Weier O'Phinney has posted the last part of his "Deployment with Zend Server" series with part eight. This part focuses on some hints around the actual deployment and automation.

This is the final in a series of eight posts detailing tips on deploying to Zend Server. Zend Server SDK to deploy your Zend Server deployment packages (ZPKs) from the command line. Today, I'll detail how I automate deployment with zf-deploy and zs-client (the Zend Server SDK), and wrap up the series with some closing thoughts.

He quickly summarizes the previous parts of the series as individual steps and wonders if there's a better way than doing each of them manually. He shows exactly this with the automation handling that zf-deploy and zs-client offer combined with a make script defining steps for the deploy, ZPK update and a cleanup/Composer update task.

Matthew Weier O'Phinney has posted his next-to-last article in his "Deployment with Zend Server" series, part seven of eight concerning the "zs-client" tool.

This is the seventh in a series of eight posts detailing tips on deploying to Zend Server. The previous post in the series detailed setting up and clearing page caching. Today, I'm sharing how to use the Zend Server SDK to deploy your Zend Server deployment packages (ZPKs) from the command line.

Zs-client is a handy tool that lets you interact directly with the Zend Server API is a more programatic way without having to worry about the request signing process. He walks you through a sample use of the tool and shows how to add a target application and use the tool to get its current status. He also includes a basic command that lets you run an automatic update on the application.
