The preceding chapter helped you set up a folder on your computer in which to store all your files for your website. After you have the local root site folder set up, you will see that Dreamweaver MX 2004 has many tools available to help you make sure your site stays together, as well as tools that enable you to do site-wide searches and changes. However, no one but you will see the site while it lives solely on your own hard drive. You need to publish your site by putting it on a computer that anyone can access, such as a web server. This server might be for an internal intranet or for the Internet.

Where you put your site so others can see it is called the remote site . The remote site is generally a web server. If you are running your own server on your computer, the remote site can be as simple as another folder on your computer. In the long run, what makes your website a success (or failure) is what is in your remote site because that is what the world will see. Dreamweaver has many tools to help you keep your remote site updated and functioning properly. This chapter discusses how to define a remote site, including using various access methods , working with your remote site, uploading and downloading files, and keeping your local and remote sites synchronized.
