Creating a remote folder with Dreamweaver If Dreamweaver is your only means of access to the remote server, you wont be able to create an empty folder on the remote server until youve completed the remote settings in Dreamweaver and established a connection. If thats the case, you can either define your host directory as your remote folder, or you can create a remote folder after youve established a connection with the server. In either case, continue with the instructions in this tutorial until youre connected to a remote server. After youve established a connection, you can use the Dreamweaver Files panel to create a new remote folder.
When you establish a connection with a remote server, the Files panel displays all of the files on the remote server in Remote view (just as it displays all of the local files on your computer in Local view). To display Remote view, select Remote view from the pop-up menu at the top of the Files panel, or click Expand/Collapse in the Files panel toolbar. When you click Expand/Collapse, the Files panel displays both Local view and Remote view simultaneously.
To add an empty folder in Remote view, first display Remote view using one of the methods described earlier. (If you dont see your connection initially, click Refresh in the Files panel toolbar.) After you see that youre connected to your web server, right-click (Windows) or Control-click (Macintosh) in Remote view and select New Folder.
