App Deployment Accounts
25-minute Development Tools WorkshopStart Workshop
About this Workshop
When working on the public server where your users will interact with your app, you need to be careful. If you accidentally alter the wrong setting, service, or file, your app could go down.
That's why it's considered best practice for your developer account to have limited access, and to create a separate deployment account with full control over the system. You can use the deployment account to set up your app and deploy new versions, and use your development account for day-to-day maintenance tasks, secure in the knowledge that making a mistake won't break everything.
