I have a similar issue with deployment. I work with a desktop-style app though, not a web-based one. To complicate matters, it talks to other instances of itself on other machines. They have a client-server relationship where there is one client and several servers and the client machine has the UI and is on the company intranet. As an added bonus, one site is five minutes away, another is three hours, and another is about ten hours away. I use ScreenConnect to access the ones that are far away and sometimes the closer one too.

My answer to this problem was to make the program have a self-update facility built in so it works easily over screenconnect, or similar remote control app. I go to the running app and select the update option. It prompts for a file and I choose the one I just sent to it over screenconnect. Then it gives a prompt, "Do you want to update from version w.x.y to version w.x.z?" If I choose yes, the running program starts up the new version and passes it the location of the running program and an argument that says update yourself to here. Then the older, running version terminates itself. The new one waits until the old one is gone, copies itself to the specified location, starts itself at the new location, and then terminates itself. There is another option to update the servers which copies itself over a socket connection to to the servers and they do the same process. It's a little tricky but it all works really well and is very simple for me to use.
