Copying the sample files

Copying the sample files

If you haven’t already done so, copy the sample files from the Dreamweaver application folder to a folder on your hard disk.

To copy the sample files:

  1. Create a new folder called local_sites in your user folder on your hard disk.

    For example, create one of the following folders:

    • C:\Documents and Setting\your_user_name\My Documents\local_sites (Windows)
    • /Users/your_user_name/Documents/local_sites (Macintosh).
  2. Locate the cafe_townsend folder in the Dreamweaver application folder on your hard disk.

    If you installed Dreamweaver to its default location, the path to the folder is as follows:

    • In Windows: C:\Program Files\Macromedia\Dreamweaver 8\Tutorial_assets\cafe_townsend\.
    • On the Macintosh: Macintosh HD/Applications/Macromedia Dreamweaver 8/Tutorial_assets/cafe_townsend.
  3. Copy the cafe_townsend folder into the local_sites folder.

    The cafe_townsend folder is the folder that you will use as the root folder (main folder) for your Dreamweaver site.

After copying the cafe_townsend folder, define the folder as a Dreamweaver local folder. (See Defining a local folder.)
