Uploading Files to the Web Server

  • Once the web server has been set up within Dreamwaver, you use the Put command to upload our files to the server
  • There are 2 ways to do this
  • If I have a file open that I have just modified, I will use the Site menu to upload the file
  • You can use Site->Put or Ctrl/Cmd U
  • Since I already have the file open, that is a great method for uploading a single file at a time
  • The Files panel does a much better job if you need to upload more than one file at a time
  • Simply select the various files you wish to upload, and click the Put arrow

Transcription: Uploading Files to the Web Server

Let's take a look at uploading some files into the Web server, and then viewing them out on the Web.0000

I have my Wanderlust Travel website all set up here, and I did install and give Dreamweaver the information to connect with my Web server; now, how do I go about doing that?0008

Well, the easiest method is to just choose some files from within my Local Files panel; since this is the first time I am going to upload information, I have to be careful how I am going to do this.0021

And because I have some many files here, I don't really need to upload everything to the server; normally, if this was your first time uploading, you would want to upload everything.0035

What I am going to do is limit this to my homepage for now--so how do I do that?0047

I am going to select my homepage (which is index), and I am going to click the blue arrow that says "put"; notice, it says "Put files to the remote server"; I'll go ahead and do that.0055

Now, it is asking me about dependent files; I will say yes, since this is the first time.0071

While it is uploading those, I will give you an idea of what a dependent file is: a dependent file is a file that this page needs in order to work correctly out on the Web.0078

Let me go out into Firefox and go ahead and preview, I'll go out to Firefox; I'll plug in my Web address, and that will be; and this will be wanderlust; and let's see the file.0091

Guess what--there it is; now, because I said "upload the dependent files," my images were uploaded; my styles were uploaded; you can see, my navigation doesn't quite have all of the styles in it, so I'll have to check that out.0111

But if I scroll, even my slideshow is all set up; Dreamweaver asked me about it and knew exactly which files to upload, and my page is all set.0130

I can use the Files panel; whatever files I select within this panel--those are the files that, when I click the blue arrow, are going to go up to my Web server.0141

I can have this file open and accomplish the same thing if I go up to Site, Put; so, if the file is open in Dreamweaver, right here, I can go up to the Site menu and choose Put, and it would upload it exactly the same way.0156

What I tend to do is: if it's a single file, I will quite often have it open; I have just modified it, and then I will go in this direction.0173

If I want to upload a bunch of files, I will go ahead and select them within the Files panel and click the blue Put.0183

It is as easy as that to upload to your Web server using Dreamweaver; I had it all set up--the Web server information was there; my connection was working; so, I select the file and click the blue arrow to put it onto my server.0193

Just make sure you always go out into the browser to double-check and make sure it is looking fine once it is out on the Web.0210

That is how you upload a file to the Web server.0219
