The message pretty well spells it out. There are two very likely options and one possible option.
1. The password and login are not correct (very likely)
2. The other FTP settings (server address or root folder) are not correct (again, very likely)
3. The folder "htdocs" doesn't exist on the server (possible if you have never successfully connected and uploaded any files, but that probably isn;t why you're seeing this)
Double check your FTP setting against what your host gave you. Check with your host to see if you MUST use passive FTP or secure FTP to connect.
Download Filezilla and input your FTP settings, then try to connect with it. If it can connect and DW can't get back to us.
I am using CS4 and Windows 7 premium home
I had a local problem, so I downloaded all the remote site files to my local site. I have found that I do not have a htdocs file on my local site.
Obviously, have gone wrong somewhere...:-(

Did you check your FTP settings in Dreamweaver as has been previously mentioned? Make sure they are set to 'passive'.
If you can connect using another FTP client then its certainly a Dreamweaver issue. Personally I have never been that impressed with the built in FTP and stopped using it years ago.
Unlike Osgood, DW is all I have ever used for FTP, and it works fine for me. It should work fine for you, too. Look in your remote site definition and tell us what you have specified for the Remote Root Folder in that section, please.
he is a shot of the ftp screen.
To view this FTP site in Windows Explorer: press Alt, click View, and then click Open FTP Site in Windows Explorer.

THe htdocs folder should not be present in your local site, and should not appear in ANY of your links in the site's pages.
It should only be mentioned in the Remote site definition for the Local root folder (in DW's Site manager's screens).
Have left ftp. in place. but removed the htdocs/ from the Remote site's Host Directory. It's now blank.
But that does not mean that I may use it to upload my files. am quite happy with Wise, but nice to know that it works
Thanks for your help
