    Dreamweaver 8 Problem Please Help

    danny_boyo7
      Heya i'm new to this forum but i though with this problem i have you would be the best to ask.
      Basically the problem is that i have made a website and have been doing weekly updates from my PC to the server space i bought. No wi have just bought a laptop and want to edit my website from that instead of the PC. I transfered all my root folder to my laptop fine but i am having trouble with connecting it to the server to update the site.

      Also is there a way i can udate from my laptop and pc.

      Thanks.

          Did you define the remote site on the laptop?

            Please let us know if you have installed DW on your laptop, and have
            configured your site in Site Manager.

              Specifically, what problem are you having connecting? Are you getting an error? Did you recreate the site settings in DW, including the Remote Info and Testing Server bits?

              Have you tried an FTP program instead of DW's internal one?

                thanks for replies.

                well i have set up the information and have connected fine with my remote server but everytime i edit the main index page of my site through dreamweaver 8 i click save to remote server and then i go to the internet and the wesite hasnt changed it stays the same.

                I can update fine from my pc but not laptop.

                Any ideas?

                Thanks!
