You can do that for sure with a little bit of precaution
on the testing site (e.g. no load tests and crazy programming).

That is one of your choices, but you can do that with
rsync as well, which is safe and efficient and can
be configured to exclude certain files you wouldn't want
to synchronize. I really recommend to use a version 
control system (CVS, Subversion, Aegis, ..) anyway.
Pick up a copy of "Pragmatic Programmers" if you
don't trust me :-)
