Jul 19, 2012 8:50 AM

Do I need to move all the websites HTML pages to xampp/htdocs and use this as the new local site folder?

    No, you can just define the testing server as the XAMPP/htdocs/site folder and use that for the testing server and DW will do the rest.

    I'm not sure what SnakEyez was thinking. I would say, yes, move all your files innto the xampp/htdocs folder and reset your site definition in DW accordingly.

    Rob it can be done that way.  There are also a lot of users who try to keep it separate.  They keep local files and then test in another location.  The warning that is being received about a different folder is usually related to the paths.  I explained this to another user here: http://forums.adobe.com/message/4224748 .  It doesn't have to be in the same folder because DW can test the pages from anywhere.  Matter of opinion at that point.  Personally I use one folder for both, but it can be done either way.

    DB I agree with you 100% about the documentation. It's dated and not as useful and it could be at explaining the setup, but moreso with the errors.  Plus the search function on these forums has never been stellar, so finding these old posts is usually done through a google site search rather than a forum site (ie: site:forums.adobe.com [search string here] - when you go to google search like that).
