It is my workflow typically to publish onto a local file on my computer and then upload with an FTP program, specifically Yummy, which works wonderfully.
I have noticed, though, that if I try to just publish the new or changed pages onto the local file, and then upload the changed pages only that the site invariably crashes or lacks assets needed to fully load the page.
Is is best practice to just delete and republish the entire site to the local file, and then do the same for the FTP upload? I would have hoped that with a single page update that it not be necessary to reload the entire site each time.
Is this a common problem? And are there workarounds for it?
