    Where is it Putting to?

    PeterG1111

      Hello,

       

      Objective:  To Get one of my sites, modify it, and Put it.

       

      Procedure that I followed:

       

      --  Set up my site using New Site set up in Dw;

       

      --  Open remote site;

       

      --  Get all pages;

       

      --  Modify pages using Dw;

       

      --  Put modified pages.

       

      This proces returns no errors and appears to complete successfully.

       

      However, the new pages are not located in my site.

       

      Question:  Where is Dw Putting my modified pages?

       

      Thank you for any thoughts.

          How have you defined the remote site? the host directory?

            What method are you using to determine this?

              I know the new pages are not being put to the site because the changes do not appear on the pages when viewed in a browser -- even after clearing the cache and reloading.

               

              Also, in another series of tests, I deleted all pages from the server leaving only my local copy of the site. Then I viewed the site, saw it was empty, and Put the pages from Dw. The pages were not on the site when viewed in a browser or on the split local-remote screen in Dw.

               

              I tried to be certain of this before asking everyone here for assistance.

                The fact that you are getting the files successfully and then editing a local copy tells me that your local and remote site definition is probably ok. It could be an FTP error. Check the ftp log:

                Go to Site->Advanced->FTP Log

                  Thank you each for making me think and resolve my problem.

                   

                  I wish I knew what exactly I had done wrong in my previous site definition, but that smart I am not.

                   

                  Today I removed and re-defined the site in Dw.  Then the get and put worked correctly.

                   

                  The only thing I can guess that I did might have done differently in today's site definition was possibly defining the site as "root". Maybe I did not click "root" on my previous site defintion.

                   

                  My only guess is that that could have caused this sort of put error.

                   

                  Thank you very much.
