Due to security limitations, the site I manage has no ftp
access (the entire site is uploaded to a remote server each time as
a zip file). Also, we have no local testing server so the entire
site is actually administered on a local network drive. I have the
site set up in Dreamweaver but we have Contribute on a second
machine in the office and I'd like to set the site up so that I can
administer it through dreamweaver while an editor would be able to
make simple edits through Contribute.
The editor can connect to the local drive with Contribute
without issue but I'd like to enable Contribute compatibility in
Dreamweaver to allow check-in/check out. In the 'site definition'
dialog in dreamweaver, under the 'Contribute' category, I checked
'Enable Contribute compatibility' but it also asks for the Site
Root URL. However, this site has to be administered on the local
network drive (I tried using the path as the site rool url) so I
can't figure out if it even going to be possible to set it up to
Is it even going to be possible to set up the site,
Dreamweaver and Contribute to work together on a local drive
instead of an actual server?
