I know there are packages like Subversion and CVS. Is there anything similar to that but for FTP? Or is there a way to adapt SVN to FTP? Or maybe some way to do it via WebDAV?
Please post any ideas you have.
It sets up an "X" drive on your local disk, which is exactly the same tree and files as your remote server. We use HomeSite and log in to the sets of files we routinely update on "X", make any changes and hit "save," then it is immediately saved on the server.
Homesite supposedly has built-in deployment, but it doesn't provide the reliability across several servers like WebDrive.
I think it is certainly worth a look, and is in the top-3 of our productivity add-ons.

moltar, have you looked at WebDrive?
WebDrive is not really what I need. I can't edit files remotely, because I always need to test them first. Many scripts and such...
Check out Synchback. It's from 2brightsparks.
This is what I was gonna go with before mat mentioned Site Publisher.
Site Publisher is just awesome! Exactly what I was looking for. It has hundreads of features, and is very light at the same time (800 KB).
