Problem setting up local site

Jun 13, 2012 5:27 AM

Tags: #error #dw #local_site

Set up local site (it's a dropbox folder, my colleague uses his with no problem) and when I try to edit CSS I get an error "can't connect to http://www.abc.com/css/cssstyles", however the local site is on the C drive. DW is obviously looking in the wrong place, how can I direct it to the local site? Thanks.

    What is the path to your local root folder as shown in your site definition?

    In the Dropbox folder you have another folder named "@WEBSITE"?

     

    And what is it you do when you "...try to edit CSS..." and get the error?

    I came here.

     

    I suppose that would be one of the literal interpretations of my question.  But the one I was after was "what operations are you performing in DW to 'edit the CSS', and which result in the error message you mention?"

    OK - I'm still not getting the granularity I'm looking for.  What operations are you performing to make the error message appear.  I'm wanting to mentally reproduce your steps....
