Not only am I a newbie, but I'm not feeling very smart.
So far I cannot figure out why my page revisions at the local level do not automatically update at the remote level. I am using Dreamweaver MX 1992. In the Site Definition Menu/Remote Folder, I have checked "Automatically upload files to server on save." The [non] execution of this command is at the source of my problem; the issue appears to be one of [non] handshaking.
Here's the sequence: after making my changes in DW at the local level and issuing the save command, eros tries to update that file on my [remote] website; failing this, it comes back with with this error message: "An FTP error occurred; cannot get remote folder."
Thinking the problem was at the local level, I thoroughly checked out my Site Definition Menu : the remote host tests successfully in the REMOTE INFO menu: "Dreamweaver connected to your web server successfully." Ditto for running the same test in the TESTING SERVER menu. Obviously, the problem cannot be at this level.
After checking and re-checking my settings and all, I don't know where else to look. Could the problem be with my site root URL? HTTP://.eros.lunarpages.com~morbro2/public_html. [I've tried variations of this to no avail.]
So I turn to you, kind reader, for enlightenment. What am I doing wrong? Thanks. David
