What is the best way to transfer settings and configurations?

I set up and configured OpenERP locally on my PC. I made lots of changes already and I'm ready to deploy it to the development server then to the production server after thorough testing. How do I transfer those changes and configuration as is from my local server to the development server? I'm thinking of just the copying files from my pc to the development server but how do I do that neatly if ever that is ideal?

When you make a backup (from the webpage) and restore that on another server, your settings and configs are taken.

If you made modifications to fields/views using the browser, you might run into issues. That is why the preferred method of making changes to models or creating new models is to use applications (mainly python code and XML definitions).

Thanks! I am now editing through the codes in the file system.
