Dreamweaver Upload Problems

Dreamweaver is a great program for building your website, but sometimes it doesn’t upload to the hosting correctly. By default, Dreamweaver is set to upload files to the root directory, rather than the public_html directory where the files need to be. Don’t worry though, there are workarounds for this.

The first work around would be to simply specify the directory when inputting the FTP information. Your FTP information would then look something like this:

  • Username: hosting username
  • Password: hosting password
  • Server: The hosting server name (hs1.name.com for example)
  • Directory: public_html/
  • Port: 21

If this does not work for you, you can also try creating a new FTP account on the hosting and set the upload folder for this account to default to the public_html directory. For instructions on creating a new FTP account, check out our article here.
