Wordpress Capistrano Deploy
This is a recipe for deploying your local WordPress environment, database and all, to your staging(playground) and production servers. You can refer to Theme.FM's tutorial to get a good idea on where to start, but I've made a good bit of modifications, namely in the database arena. Check out those tutorials here.
I'll be doing a full writeup on how it works in the somewhat near future, so stay tuned!
