You will have to wait depending on the size of your website archive. Be sure to keep your web browser open and do not navigate away from the page while Quick Deploy unpacks your website archive. Any errors that occur should appear within the large text box area, otherwise you should see the text “Done!” if only for a second before being transferred to your site’s home page.
If Quick Deploy succeeded, you will know right away by seeing your website’s home page. Quick Deploy should have also cleaned up after itself, deleting both the quick-deploy.php script file and your website archive ZIP file. A temporary folder would have been created with the same name of your website archive file and that should have been deleted as well. For security purposes, you should verify that the folders and files are no longer present on your site. Lastly, because this is still a beta feature, you should thoroughly review the integrity of your newly deployed website for any potential errors or incompatibilities.
While there are other ways to deploy your website, DesktopServer’s export feature can prepare your database and files for easy deployment. Quick Deploy makes the process even quicker by allowing you to deploy your site in three easy steps. Enjoy!
