(For detailed help with any of these steps, please consult your software's help documentation or consult Macromedia's online support center.)
To get started, you'll need to use Dreamweaver define a local site. This means that you will designate a directory (folder) on your computer as the local root (main) folder for your web site files. As you build your site with Dreamweaver, you will store and edit your pages and files here.
Next you'll need to define a remote site. Here you'll associate the Yahoo! Web Hosting server with the local folder you defined in the first step.
Here you'll need to enter your FTP settings. You can find your FTP settings on the Create & Update and Manage tabs of your Web Hosting Control Panel, in the Web Hosting Account Details module under "FTP Account Info." (Learn more about FTP.)
Note: Be sure to select the "Use Passive FTP" checkbox. Passive FTP enables your local software to set up an FTP connection rather than asking the remote server to set it up (this option is blocked by Yahoo! for your protection).
(See Macromedia's help center for more information about defining a site.)
When you're ready to transfer your web site files to Yahoo!, visit Dreamweaver's Site panel or Site window, choose "Connect," then click "Put" to upload your selected files and folders. (See Macromedia's help center for more information about using Dreamweaver to FTP.)
When the transfer is complete, your files and folders will be available in your File Manager.
