Hello,

I recently got a new web content management job and was told I'd need to handle some issues with the staging server and production server. One example was that some xml file was out of place and so the person before me had to check the servers...
Keep in mind the person interviewing me might not of been sure about what they were talking about.
I have never dealt with servers before. I have designed websites and setup everything with the website hosts but nothing with servers.
Can someone tell me what this would entail and where I can read up on this?

Thanks

Put simply, a staging server is where you test configurations and then you would move that configuration onto a production server for live service.

Thanks das_tig

So where would you find problems that come up unexpectedly, the staging server or the production server since the files would probably already be live?
