For an e-zine (2000+ files) I use simple Makefiles to install the generated 
pages into the root of our local staging-server. Syncronisation with the 
remote server is done with sitecopy (http://www.lyra.org/sitecopy/). Sitecopy 
can update the remote server via ftp or WebDAV and uses a local database to 
compare timestamps and/or checksums. It can also manage file permissions. 
It's easy to use and worked very well for the last few years.
