Dreamweaver FTP Settings


New Member
What is the correct path/folder for ftp? I'm using home/username/public_html but Dreamweaver keeps telling me it can't access the folder.

That would be the real path on the server, but if ftp (not scp / sftp) is in use then dreamweaver will see / - in that case set

Your path is correct home/username/public_html but only if you are on shared server.
If you are on dedicated/VPS server then you have to upload your files in "home" folder.
Configuring FTP
-Open Dreamweaver CS5. Click Site and choose New Site.
-For site name, enter a phrase that describes your site.
-Click Servers from the left-hand side.
-Click the + button to add a server.
-Enter a server name.
-Connect using FTP Then enter your FTP Host which is your domain name (example: mysite.com) or the IP address of your server.
-Host or Root Directory should be public_html if this is your main site with us.
-Enter your login name and password. The login name will be the character username you received in your sign up confirmation email, if you do not know it please log into the cPanel and go into FTP accounts, it is the 8 character one, the password is the same password you set up when you created your account.
-Click more options.
-Click use passive FTP.
-Save this information and connect to your account.
The message "Dreamweaver connected to your Web server successfully" indicates that you successfully connected to the FTP server.

Hope this information was useful to you.
