Setup the Continuous delivery

Overview

To setup the Continuous Delivery process, you must first setup your development environment, then copy the code to your live and test environments, using export for deployment. Afterwards, to protect the live and test environments, you should make its configurations read-only and configure the SiteSync to synchronize content only. You must also use the Auto-storage mode of configurations on all of your environments, which takes care that environment configurations are delivered easily between environments, while runtime setting are not overwritten.
