Dreamweaver is currently interacting with a server.

Oct 10, 2008 4:31 PM

Having trouble when updating a library item. Update the library item, save, choose Update Site....says it needs to Check out files, click "Yes to All" (I have maybe 70 files that use this item). Checks out first file then a dialog pops up:

Title of Dialog box: Adobe Dreamweaver CS3
"Dreamweaver is currently interacting with a server.
Since checking out a file requires interaction with a server as well, Dreamweaver cannot currently perform this task.
Please try it again when the current server task is complete."

click OK and DW proceeds to try and update pages *without* checking them out. This fails because they are read-only. Every time I repeat the procedure I get one more file checked out. I don't have any other DW tasks going on...(ie, nothing interacting with a server that I know of). I am using passive ftp if that matters...

Does anyone know what's happening or a work around?

    do you -need- to use checkin/checkout?

    check out all the files first- then do the update and check them back in?

    are there other Users editing this site with dreamweaver?

    If not- turn off checkin/checkout.

    If yes- you will have to contact them to check IN all files, then not edit
    till you give the all clear. checkout the entire site, or just the needed
    files. update the library items. check all the files back in (in the
    expanded Files Panel menu of recent versions, you can select recently edited
    files, or sort the headings of the file list by checkin status column)

    If it's a large or complex site, with other people also editing, i would
    replace the library items with server side includes to make it much less
    complex to update.

    Hello avibodha,

     

    Did you ever get this sorted out?  I have this with DW CS5 on my Mac.  Just wondered if you'd found a solution?  Thanks

    Jules,

    Are you checking in/checking out files from the server?

     

    Do you have links to external URLs in your pages?

     

    Are you using Google analytics, Google Fonts or other Google widget code on your pages?

    Yes, I'm using check in/out.  I have someone that also updates the same sites as I do, so I don't want any screwups.  Also have clients that use Contribute.

     

    Yes, I have a few links to external URLs, but it still happens on pages that I don't. 

     

    I use Google Analytics on ALL my sites.  Some have Google fonts installed as well.

     

    Am I hooped???  Sure sounds like it!

    You've got the whole enchilada, don't you?

     

    Randy suggested turning off Code Hints & Dynamically Related Files

    http://forums.adobe.com/message/3670434#3670434

     

    Go to:

     

      Preferences > General

     

    Either turn off "Enable Related Files" or set "Discover Dynamically-Related Files" to Disabled.

    Well, I'm REALLY hooped then!  I tried what you suggested, but then I realized when these prefs were disabled, that I use those a lot too!!!  I guess I'll just wait and see when cs6 comes out, if they correct this bug.  I'm going to report it as a bug.  I don't think I should have to live without features that DW has, in order to not have errors.

     

    By the way, just to give you a laugh, Nancy, I don't seem to get the error message [as much] if I turn off mamp.  Alas!  I build most of my sites in php, so that's not an alternative either!!!  LOL

     

    Guess I push DW to its absolute limits!
