    Two computers for the same website, need help!

    brunoak
      Hello everybody, I really need some help here!
      I am working on a website at the office and to save some time, I've send by email all the files related to it to my pc at home. When I tried to open the pages at home, I've found problems with visualizing the pictures, there are squares instead! The pictures are at the same position where I've put it, but there no images, just those squares with a draw of a tore picture inside. I want to know if this is trivial when the files are transfered to other computer. help me please

          Zip the entire site starting from the root folder. Email that zip file.

              Computer A, and Computer B.

              Locate the site's root folder on Computer A's hard drive using Windows
              Explorer/Finder. Zip that folder and all its contents. Email that zip file
              to computer B (so to speak). Unzip it in the same location it was on
              computer A. Start DW on Computer B. Create a new site pointing to the root
              folder you just unzipped.

              Alternatively, you could also export the site definition from Computer A and
              add it to the zip file. In that case you would just IMPORT that site
              definition into Computer B's DW after unzipping the file and you're ready to
              go.

                Even better although not to easy to setup would be to have an FTP server
                running on your home PC.
                With the FTP server allow access to the folder on your home PC where the
                Office PC website is to be mirrored.
                (Choose a good username and password to maintain the security of your home
                PC).

                Then back on your office PC you would simply enter your home PC's FTP
                address, username and password in the site preferences 'Remote Info'.

                Then you simply use Dreamweaver's Synchronise function to maintain and
                syncronise files between PCs.

                      With all due respect if the OP is having problems coming to grips with
                      zipping and emailing, a ftp server would be beyond him. A little realism
                      needs to be injected before such solutions are suggested.
