    Installing Contribute

    fatfenders
      Well, here I go again... Sales guy was aggressive enough in taking my money but now I can't get through on the one 800 number and I know so little about this stuff I don't know where else to go.
      Have purchased and am attempting to install Contribute. I am now at the point where it wants a 'connection key', says to get it from the 'administrator' whoever/whatever that is.
      Can someone help this non-techie here?

          Can you follow the steps in Edit > My Connections > Create? You have to know how you connect to the website you want to edit. There is help available under Get started > Connect to a website.

            Thanks for responding Tom.
            Been there. I guess I reply with 'FTP' for connection but then it wants some specific info about the site, password etc. I don't know this. If I read it correctly, if I have a 'connection key' I don't need this other stuff. Correct? Says I should have received an email (didn't) with it or get it from the administrator. (I purchased it over the phone, directly from 'Brian', an Adobe salesman (I guess)).

              Hello Tom,

              The only time you would use a connection key is if you have an administrator that already set up your connection for you. If you are attempting to create or edit a web site, you will need to know the ftp settings (or which ever protocol you are using). This would be provided by web site host or administrator. Here is a list of people you would contact, depending on what you are trying to connect to:

              Web site provided by your Internet Service Provider - contact your Internet Service Provider. Most ISP's provide the FTP connection information on their web site.

              Web site that you are paying for - Contact the Web Host. Again, they commonly list the connection setting on their web site.

              Internal business website - Contact the administrator of this site. Depending on your company, this may be your IT or IS department.
