Entering Web Server Information

  • Dreamweaver has a full ftp program built into it
  • You can enter the web server information for a web host and Dreamweaver stores this information so you can upload your pages onto a web server from within Dreamweaver
  • Go to Site->Manage Sites, choose your site and click the pencil icon which allows you to edit site information
  • Select the Servers category to add or edit the server information
  • You click the + sign in the Servers category to add web server information for a particular website
  • The Server Administrator at your web host or within your organization gives you the web server access information that needs to be added to Dreamweaver
  • Use the FTP option if you are uploading to a web host on the internet, this is the option recommended by most web hosts to upload to the server
  • FTP stands for file transfer protocol and is a protocol created for transferring files
  • The HTTP protocol is used to view files within the browser
  • If your web servers are accessible via a local network, use the Local/Network option
  • There are additional protocols available within this area depending upon your web server situation
  • Be sure to test the connection once you put in your information by clicking the Test button
  • If you have any trouble connecting, be sure the password is correct, they are case-sensitive
  • If you cannot get connected you need to contact the web host or your server administrators in order to determine what the issue might be, there are many reasons why you may not be able to connect
  • This information is stored within Dreamweaver, so the next time you open Dreamweaver on this machine, you will be able to upload/download without the need to re-enter this information
