In Remote view, right click your root folder and choose Set Permissions. Change to access write and execute for all. (check every box) thenm click OK. Give ti a minute and try again.
Just tried, but no luck.
Good suggestion though
there are at least two ways. The one is that you can configure an access by means of DW, the other is carrying out in an external FTP program. I personally prefer the latter. The difficulties with which you have to fight encourage me in this opinion, not least because we always search for experts, we don't charge a "jack of all trades".
For this reason, to manage, for example, several websites or to upload my files and sometimes for the opposite way, for a necessary download from my server, by using filezilla. It simply looks easier for me to keep track of all operations precisely and generate or reflect easily the desired tree structure.
Above all, FileZilla has a feature (translation from my German FileZilla) called "compare file list". Here it's possible to use file size or modification time as a criterion. There is also the possibility to "hide identical files", so that only these files which you want to redact remain visible.
And even if it means you have to install a new program, I am convinced that there is an advantage. Here is the link to get it and where you can read informations about how it works:
Mac: Mac OS X
Of course, you also need all the access data to reach your server.
Not sure if I understand you correctly.. but that is sort of defeating the purpose of the "all in one DreamWeaver" capabilities.
The last thing I would want to do is go back and forth between design, coding and then another FTP client... no thanks.
Thanks for the post .
I go back and forth between design and code all day. It's what I do.
As to having another client like FileZilla. I have FileZilla, on my desktop, on my laptop and on a flashdrive.
Some servers don't "play well" with DW and FileZilla uses different connection protocols so it gets through when DW won't
Sometimes I'm with a client and they don't have wi-fi. They also don't have the latest updated build of their site... yet. FileZilla makes it easy to upload changes from their PC without having to have DW or a duplicate copy of the site... yet.
Sometimes I meet with a client at a hot-spot and they have their laptop but I only have the flash drive with the updates. We can still put the files from the flash drive.
These may or may not apply to you, but there is a good reason to have more than one option, epsecially if those additional options don't cost anything. I use BBEdit, PageBreeze, and GIMP in adition to DW and Photoshop to build websites and the graphics the have. If it came down to it I could do it with GIMP and PageBreeze then put everything up with FileZilla. I've spent nine years learning Adobe & Macromedia products though. It'd seem a waste to learn that much just to abandon it.
Modified German saying: DW will not only be a bed of roses, ...!
pardon, I'm not so sure if your attitude is really effective. My motto however is "the better is the enemy of the good".
I'm earnest questioning the effectiveness of an "one-does-it-all" tool (here in Bavaria, we have coined the wonderful phrase"eierlegende Wollmichsau"), especially since there are other truly professional programs which give you a 'magic' tool for accurate ftp-tasks and are easier to use than DW! (see my statement above).
DW works better in other areas of responsibility
Looking at the FTP log, it was having trouble with a locked STATSHISTORY file.
So, I just deleted
Please fill me in on the issue with STATSHISTORY. Where does it reside and how do I get to it if I can't FTP to the server?
I have the same issue you had.

It would be best if you started a new conversation and described exactly what's happening, along with your system info and DW version so other posters who are active on the forum can help you.
