First, please forgive my ignorance of all things Linux. My experiences with the OS is less than a year old.
I'm using a Debian Squeeze (LAPP turnkey
) as a PostgreSQL server. On the same server I have Web App running that reads from the database, so my client's can review data and make reports on their local network. What I'm trying to understand is how I could bundle the WE builds to deliver updates to them as painlessly as possible. There's no UI, so the client will have to do something from the command-line. What I'd like to avoid is making them SFTP in and swap files, change permissions, and run the app from the shell.
Is it possible to create a Linux build that can be called from the shell that downloads, removes, and installs the new files? Should I write this myself as a Console App?
