Without competition in inhouse development, I get off easy in a certain way.

I have a parallel set of all the main web-app pages. They live on production and differ only by a nuance in the name that distinguishes them. When a page in this set is opened it checks its own name and determines if it's targets are also live production or dev.

If and when everything works (a couple of competent testers who will also be the users for other development), the original files are archived for quick-replacement in an emergency and the dev versions are all saved to the live production names.

It already worked on production so it will work on production.

This works because, at least for quite a few years, it's all my private domain for development so there's no conflicts (human or code). Roll-backs are rare because we (myself and the testers/users) keep the attitude that this stuff has our name on it and one ought to have pride in their work (i.e., don't make a jackass out of yourself in front of 400-500 people). An error shows up in well under a minute after go-live, if there is one, with ca. 3000-4000 hit/hr for the internal site as a whole.
