Hi, I apologize if this has been asked but honestly.. I searched for an answer on the web and in the forums.

I just deployed a fairly customized build. I have no problems making changes to the theme but I now need to add a new controller, view, and a route entry. I am worried that if I just 'publish' (through VS) or run the .bat files and upload the new build that I may break the live site.

What would be the procedure to publish the changes without having the site asking me to re-install or just plain breaking the whole thing?

Is it possible to make my changes on my development site, run the build scripts and just upload the new binaries?

Thanks in advance for any help..
