    need help with 1 thing

    afghanikiddo12
      I followed a tut and learned how to do everything I'll need. I'm a kid, so I don't need to be professional about anything. Anyways, the tutorial left out the last part. How to publish your website. It said to find a guide in the help from dreamweaver, but I didn't find it. If anybody could sum it up for me, simple or not, it would be greatly appreciated.

          Ok the next step is having the webspace and proper functionality of that space to publish your site.

          You may need to consult with your web hosting provider if you don't have the details to what I am discussing next because they are the only ones that would be able to help you.

          First you will need to have FTP access to your website. If you do not know what this is or are unsure of this information, consult your web host here. If you do not have FTP access to your website, you will not be able to publish from within Dreamweaver and you should consult with your web host about how to put the files onto your web server.

          If you do have FTP access you can follow the next set of steps. You will want to click on Site->Manage Sites. Then from this list choose the site you have made. Then follow through the wizard for setting up the FTP information, which will be provided to you by your web host. Follow the on-screen instructions and you will be set.

          If you have not set up a site, you will need to go through the entire process and create a new site. There is information about this in the DW help section, but it is pretty straight forward. All you need to know is where the files you have made are located on your hard drive. Dreamweaver will then ask for the FTP (or Remote) information and once you fill that in you will be set to go.

            Open DW. Press F1. Read about how to define a site and PUT/GET files.

              Many thanks, but since I'm making the site for a friend, I'm not exactly sure how I would get FTP access... Would he be able to give it to me, or would I have to send him the files + give him a little tut on what to do? Technically, I've needed help with two things now, but you answered the first, so its down to 1, thank-you.

                Yes - he would relay to you the FTP login information sent to him by his
                host.

                Alternatively, you could give him the files, and let him upload them using
                that same FTP information.

                  Your friend will need to have a domain name purchased for his site, and then have hosting set up for the site, which can be free or you can purchase. You will have to set up a login and password to access the hosting account and then connect to it with something called FTP, which can be done from inside Dreamweaver. You simply log onto the hosting server, upload the files, and then you can view your site. It sounds easy, which it is, but the first time it's a lot of work.

                    He has a domain, I have the site done, with the exception of a few pictures//tables missing, being my first site, it took me roughly 40 minutes.

                      And your second could take even longer.
