    I work for a small web development company where up until recently I was the only developer. We've grown rapidly and we now have sometimes two or three people making modifications. It was never a problem when it was just me but others aren't so diligent about making sure they're working on the most current version. Our sites are hosted using IIS, can anyone suggest a CVS system or other solution to the problem of files being overwritten? We have a machine with Dreamweaver and I've tinkered with their built in check in/out functionality but haven't found it to be that great. Even when files are properly checked out, I find I sometimes can't copy them or move them locally. It's a big hassle.

    Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Mike

    What about CVS? http://www.gnu.org/software/cvs/

    I went to a large merchant bank in the City of London for a meeting a year or so ago who use J2EE and .NET technologies and was quite surprised to find that they relied on CVS for all their software configuration management needs.

    Just because something is Open Source doesn't necessarily make it bad... give it a go and see what you think...

    CVS or SubVersion. Personally I like SV because it have more features than CVS. But I won't list them here because I just recently picked it up and have been learning to use it well.

    Thanks to both of you. I'm going to sit down and look at both this week. I appreciate the input.
