    Dreamweaver FTP Capabilities

    martincou Level 3
      Hi,

      My problem is I work with several websites for the company and I have to upload them on 2 servers (QA and live). These 2 servers have different ftp host, username and password to acces them.

      Is it possible with Dreamweaver to have several server definitions with one site (like with GoLive)? So I could choose which one I want to upload my site on ! It’s annoying to always have to fill the field one time and erase it and re-fill it later …

      Thanks !
      (I'm sorry if someone post this question before, but the search function is bugged ...)

          Create two site definitions, and use the "name" field to indicate to you
          what server it is so you can tell what one you are in. Set the Local Site
          Folder to the same folder so they share all site files.

          so i have one site on two servers
          in the sites list is:
          Joes site-hostgator
          Joes site-dathorn

          I pick either one to do edits/updates, then upload the files.
          Then i change to the other site, and upload the Latest Changed files.

            Have 2 site definitions for each site with different remote info for each
            version. Give each a name reflecting the server used.
