Default test site (path/location)

Are there any changes to the configuration (other than specifying the path) when using a test site?

At the start of chapter 7 I have configured:
C:\Documents and Settings\User\My Documents\theSoccerSite\ as the local site
http:/localhost/theSoccerSite/ (http address)

C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\theSoccerSite\ as the remote site

C:\theSoccerSite\ as the test site
C:/theSoccerSite/ (url prefix)

Even though I only have 1 machine, I would like to proceed as if the test site is different than the remote site (for educational purposes).
Please advise.
Thanks, Tracey

Hi Tracey,

I am not sure I understand what you're asking....

Is it possible to set up Dreamweaver to operate with the testing server in a separate/different physical path/location from the remote view on the same machine (to better simulate a more realistic environment)?

Example:
local view - <same Physical Machine>\path1
remote view - <same Physical Machine>\path2
testing server - <same Physical Machine>\path3

If so what are the configuration changes (in addition to or changes from my previous post) or does Dreamweaver require that the remote view and the testing server be the exact same path when on the same machine?

Please advise.
Thanks, Tracey

Hi Tracey

I haven't tried it for a while but I think it should work. You may need to set up multiple web sites in IIS (the web server) for this to work OK, unless you just want to store your data in a separate folder.

But what would be the point? What are you really testing then?

Thumbs up

Thank you for taking time to reply to this issue.
From Your perspective I understand your response which is 100% correct.
But from My perspective though, it was more to get accustomed to how DWMX2K4 works.
But then again the Software is obsolete.
My purpose is to learn web site creation/maintenance with the tools with which I have access (w/o buying anything else).

Thanks again, Tracey

In that case, you may want to take a look at Visual Web Developer Express Edition. It's free, but extremely feature rich: www.microsoft.com/Express

I wrote a book called Beginning ASP.NET 3.5 (http://www.wrox.com/WileyCDA/WroxTitle/Beginning-ASP-NET-3-5-In-C-and-VB.productCd-047018759X.html) that shows you how to use Visual Web Developer Express Edition to build rich ASP.NET 3,5 web sites. It's far from obsolete.... ;-)

Cheers,

Imar
