I don't know if this is acceptable for other people, but we do it all 
the time, specially as we have in-house developments.

we also use SVN to keep record of all server configuration files 
changes, and I think that's cool too.

what do you mean? setup a SVN repository? you better take a look at SVN 
site to find out documentation on it:

depending on your OS it's pretty easy to use it on your production 
server: just install SVN and use "svn co <repository> <localdir>" and 
"svn update <localdir>" at your convenience.
