Default Basic upload / autorefresh settings.

Hello,

I am trying the simple and basic develop (and test) locally, and do not publish on the remote through a dial-up ISP until everything is debugged.

This is simple, right?

I have configured the testing server (on my home computer) as C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\FHSDevelopmentSite\ (adding the extra file), while "remote info" is an ftp dial-up: ftp.filename.com

Well, in this configuration, I am able to publish great. The problem is that Dreamweaver thinks my remote ISP is the testing server. Whenever I make a development, experimental, or debugging change, Dreamweaver tries to publish every change like it is doing an auto refresh at the remote server.

I DID NOT check "refresh remote file list automatically," and Dreamweaver is taking liberties to refresh at the ISP anyway. If I happen to be logged-on while I make a debugging change, such as "alert('hello');", that change will be published automatically, before I have tested it on the testing server.

Dreamweaver seems to have reversed the role of testing and remote server.

Could anyone please help me? What am I doing wrong?

As a temporary work-around, I am completely turning-off the remote-info and telling Dreamweaver that my local computer is the remote, and I write the same information in both testing and remote information. Temporarily, I am able to author my website locally. I am doing the uploads with WS_FTP LE.

Thanks, Daniel




Thank you,

Hi Daniel,

Do you have Automatically upload files to server on save enable for the Remote site?

Hi Imar,

Yes I did have "Automatically upload files to server on save enabled."
Now it has stopped automatically uploading.
However, I would still like it to automatically copy over to the testing server, which is located at C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\FHSDevelopmentSite\.

Perhaps I should make the testing server and the local site the same folder so that a copy does not need to take place.

Daniel

Yeah, that is one way to fix it.

Alternatively, you can use the Preview in Browser feature to preview the pages the way they are on the server. DV will update the necessary pages for you, or create temporary files depending on your preferences.

Cheers,

Imar
