Hello.I am developing my site in development environment and then when I reach to some good point I'll update live. I was wondering if there's any easy tool to patch live datapases? On live server I can only run PHP scripts but I can allow SQL connections from my development machine if needed. I am looking for something that would add missing columns with defaut values or optionally values from dev database dump, that would rename columns if needed and that would create new tables if neede, but not touch the existing data. The reason why I am asing this is that if I just export and then import dump then my articles on live also get overwritten with test data, but if I exclude articles from SQL dump then I would have to update this table manyally from phpmyadmin. Is there any quick and easy tool for that?
