In this lecture, our instructor, Candyce Mairs, talks about how to download from a remote server. She shows how to download files from a server using the Get Files function and switch between sites using the Show Local and Remote Sites feature.
In order to download files from the web server, we need to use the expand files icon within the Files panel, the last icon in this panel
This allows you to view both the files on your local machine and the files on the web server at the same time
Click the connect button, the first icon in the line
Once connected, you can now view the web server files
Good idea to clean out your web server files every so often
Use this to view files to download or use files panel with get
Now that we can view these files, we can select them & hit Get to get them off of the web server and onto our local machine
Be sure to choose the Expand files icon once again to get back into the standard Dreamweaver interface
Downloading from the Web Server

I now want to show you how to work with downloading files from the Web server.0000
We looked at how to upload them; let's check out how to download them.0006
I am going to work with this button right here, directly under Local View; if you click on that (and you have connected to your Web server by clicking this Connect piece), what it allows you to do is check out the files that are on your Web server, and you can also see the files that are on your local machine.0011
What I want to do is download this latest file from my remote server (my Web server out on the Internet), and I want to pull it onto my local machine.0034
And what I do is select it on the Web server...and a word of caution here: don't delete a file if you don't know what it is on the remote server: you can cause some major server problems by deleting the wrong files.0047
I am going to choose about-us-complete; and to download the file, I simply click the green arrow--what that is going to do is get those files from the server onto my machine.0064
I'll go ahead and do that; you can see, this little arrow is in front of that file, saying it is being downloaded; should dependent files be included?--I don't need them.0078
I already have the images and everything this file needs on my system; I just need the HTML piece: so I'll say no.0091
You can see, the arrow is gone, and I now have that new file from the Web server.0100
The Get allows me to choose a file on the server and pull it into my local files; the Put takes it from my local system and moves it into the remote server.0108
Now, once I move into this interface with both of these listed, I will click on this icon again, and it pops it right back into the Files panel.0122
This last icon right here is the one I clicked in order to be able to see both my Web server files and my local files; that allows me to upload or download as I need, using the Get or the Put arrows.0134
That is how you can download--not just download, but view the files on your Web server, and also download them, or even upload them to the Web server, depending upon what you need to do.0153
Just make sure you click that button again to collapse back into the Dreamweaver interface.0167
That is how you can download files from the remote server, using Dreamweaver and the expanded Files view to be able to view both sets--those on your Web server and those on your local machine.0174
