Do you have a deployment plan?

That being said, the deployment plan is an important part of the Instructions.docx. It should clearly layout all the steps required to:
- Deploy from scratch to a new server
- Update versions
- Rollback to a previous version
- Update Schema or data
It should also include checks to verify the deployment was successful e.g.
- Check zsValidate.aspx
- Check runtime settings (e.g. Payment Gateways, Google Analytics, Connection strings)
- Manual testing procedure (e.g. Place an order)
This document should also be signed off by the project lead and verified by the client.
Do you feel this rule needs an update?
