    Are you saying that you want to make multiple FTP connections to upload your websites from DW...?

     

    This might not be a feature yet in DW. You can raise a request here.

    Dreamweaver allows you to set up multiple server definitions for both remote and testing servers.

    However, only one of each type can be active at any given time.

    First you said "Can Dreamweaver publish to multipe sites at the same time" then later you said "same website to multiple servers"

     

    Those are two very different situations. You can have multiple websites on the same server or identical websites on multiple servers. So what, exactly, are you trying to accomplish?

    So I was wondering if Dreamweaver can publish my website to now six different servers at the same time.   Is there a trick to do that in Dreamweaver?

    I'm unaware of ANY FTP software that can do that.

    What ytou want to do is extremely unusual and doesn't make the slightest sense. Can you tell us why you want to publish the same site to different servers? I can think of reason not to do this, but I can't think of any reasons to do it.

    On an internal server network like in a big company with different divisions using dedicated servers , I can see a possibility for this, but if it's to different external or public servers.... not.

    One of the benefits of our high tech era is that we don't have to replicate data, code, etc. Sounds like the OP is talking about external web servers, but the problem would be even easier to solve in an internal corporate environment. We still don't really know what problem this strange solution is intended to solve.

    Your further explanation does make it clearer, but not clear enough to offer a solution.

     

    For instance, why don't you just hand this issue over to your huge, highly paid server administration staff?

     

    I don't know what you mean by bandwidth issues arosse the 50 states. If your company has six server replications across the country, as you indicate, then I'm having an even harder time understanding the issue. The server replication your company has should replicate the websites.

    @Hendrick - I know what your talking about because I am searching for an idea for this also.  We have our site on two servers for "high availability" to ensure the site is always online.  We upload same info to both servers and looking for a way to upload once to both also.
