Defining a remote folder
After defining a local folder, you define a web server folder as a Dreamweaver remote folder.
To define the Dreamweaver remote folder:
- In the Advanced tab of the Site Definition dialog box, select Remote Info from the Category list.
The Remote Info dialog box appears.
- In the Access pop-up menu, select how you want to move your files to and from the server: across a local network (the Local/Network option) or using FTP.
There are other options in the Access pop-up menu, but this guide doesnt cover them. For information about them, see Using Dreamweaver.
- Enter the path or FTP settings to the web server folder you created in Creating a root folder.
The folder may be on your hard disk or on a remote computer. Even if you created the folder on your hard disk, that folder is still considered to be the remote folder. The following example shows a possible Remote Folder path if you chose Local/Network access and your remote folder is on your Windows hard disk:
For more information on FTP, see Setting Remote options for FTP access in Using Dreamweaver Help.
Leave the Site Definition dialog box open. Next, define a folder to process dynamic pages. (See Specifying where dynamic pages can be processed.)
