    Testing Dreamweaver FTP Connection

    Level 7
      I was testing Dreamweaver on my website.

      I managed to log-in with no problems at all using the "Create an FTP or RDS
      Server Connection Option"

      The question is, in this way, how can I upload files to my website, I could
      not find a way on the
      tools bar or any other place.

      Also, is there a button, to close the website ? ( Like a log-off ) suppose
      I want to do something else with Dreamweaver, just want to close the ftp
      connection.

      As you can see, I hate to read !
      That's why I always come to you folks......

      ( Murray is going to send me back to school LOL , BTW I thinking on PROJ-7 )


      Thanks

          DO NOT USE FTP & RDS! When you do, you have no local files. You are
          editing the live files on the server. That's always a mistake, especially
          when you are an inexperienced user.

          Create a new site and don't use this FTP & RDS option - just select SITE.
          If you are serious about this, you will take the time to read DW's F1 Help
          about how to define a site, and up/download files to it.

            I did try that, I know, from previuos talk to you, just that I was checking
            around
            and "saw" the option on the bottom of the dialog.
