Accessing sites, a server, and local drives

Accessing sites, a server, and local drives

You can access, modify, and save files and folders in your Dreamweaver sites, as well as files and folders that are not part of a Dreamweaver site. In addition to Dreamweaver sites, you can access a server, a local drive, or your desktop.

Before you can access a remote server, you must set up Dreamweaver to work with that server (see Setting up Dreamweaver to work without defining a site).

To open an existing Dreamweaver site:

  • In the Files panel (Window > Files), select a site from the pop-up menu (where the current site, server, or drive appears).

    This is a picture of the feature being described.

For information about changing your site view (for example, to view the remote folder), see Viewing files and folders. For information about opening files in your site, see Working with files in the Files panel.

To open a folder on a remote FTP or RDS server:

  1. In the Files panel (Window > Files), select a server name from the pop-up menu (where the current site, server, or drive appears).

    This is a picture of the feature being described.

  2. Navigate to and edit files as you normally do.

    For more information, see Working with files in the Files panel.

To access a local drive or your desktop:

  1. In the Files panel (Window > Files), select Desktop, Local Disk, or CD Drive from the pop-up menu (where the current site, server, or drive appears).

    This is a picture of the feature being described.

  2. Navigate to a file, then do any of the following:
    • Open files in Dreamweaver or another application
    • Rename files
    • Copy files
    • Delete files
    • Drag files

      When you drag a file from one Dreamweaver site to another or to a folder that is not part of a Dreamweaver site, Dreamweaver copies the file to the location where you drop it. If you drag a file within the same Dreamweaver site, Dreamweaver moves the file to the location where you drop it. If you drag a file that is not part of a Dreamweaver site to a folder that is not part of a Dreamweaver site, Dreamweaver moves the file to the location where you drop it.
