Problem:

How do I connect and upload via FTP with Dreamweaver MX 2004?

File Transfer - Dreamweaver - Version MX 2004 - Connecting and Uploading

  1. Open DreamWeaver MX 2004. Click on Site and choose Manage Sites.
  2. Click the New button and choose Site.
  3. Under the Advanced Tab, fill in the Site name and HTTP Address (your domain name).
  4. Click the Remote Info category.Set Access Type to FTP.
  5. Make sure host is your domain name (example: mysite.com) or the IP address of the server.
  6. Type public_html as the host directory.
  7. Type in your username and password and click OK at the bottom.*
  8. Click Done in the Manage Sites Window.

Note: The username should be the 8 character username you received in your sign up confirmation email. However if a web developer or other 3rd party is connecting to your site please create a new FTP user for the other party. Your "main" username and password should not be given out to 3rd parties who just need ftp access.
