  Configuring GoLive CS to Connect to Your Personal Web Page:

This tutorial will show you the very basic configurations of Adobe GoLive CS for our servers.  It then shows you how to use transfer (upload & download) your web material to and from our servers.  This section explains how to configure Adobe GoLive CS to connect to our server.

Launch Adobe GoLive CS.

On the Toolbar, click Edit and select Server from the menu.


The Available Servers window appears.

Towards the right side of the screen, click the New button.


Now you're able to enter the information necessary to access your Web page.

Nickname  =  Enter a name for your personal web page.  Be distinctive so as to not confuse it with any others you may create.
Protocol  =  Select the option ftp from the menu.
Server  =  Enter the FTP server address.  It follows this formula:
Directory  =  Leave this blank.  Your username and password will allow you to log in to the correct directory.
Username  =  Enter your dial-up username (including the domain tail).  It follows this formula:  Be sure to include the domain tag
Password  =  Enter the password of your Internet connection.

Important:  Passwords are case sensitive.  Ensure your Caps Lock is disabled.

If you'd like to enter and save your password, click Save.

FTP Option  =  Check the box Use Passive Mode.

Click the OK button when finished.


We return to the main window of Adobe GoLive.

On the Toolbar, click File and select Connect to FTP/WebDAV... .


An FTP Browser window will appear.

Repeat the previous step to open another FTP Browser window.

One FTP Browser will point to a folder on your Web site while the other will point to a folder on your computer.  The folder on your Web site is known as the Remote Directory.  The folder on your computer is known as the Local Directory.

In the top FTP Browser do the following:

Servers  =  Select your site from the menu.
Click the Connect button.
GoLive will connect to your site and will display any files in the Remote Directory.

In the bottom FTP Browser window, do the following:

Click the Browse Local button and select the folder in which you store your Web site files.
The FTP Browser will display any files in your Local Directory.


Transferring Files To and From Our Server:

Upon successful connection, all the files and folders on our server should appear in the FTP Browser window.

In the example below, the site window has only one file called index.html, but you may have many files in your folder.

Uploading Files  =  Dragging & dropping files from the Local Directory to the Remote Directory will upload files to the server allowing people to view them.  Wait for the transmission to finish.  Once done, use a web browser such as Netscape Navigator or Internet Explorer to view the website from the Internet.

Downloading Files  =  Dragging & dropping files and pictures from the Remote Directory to the Local Directory will download the files from the server to your computer.

These are the basics.  For intermediate and advanced website design information, we suggest searching the Internet or the computer section of your local bookstore.  Adobe's website would be a good resource as well.  There are lots of good educational resources covering all aspects of web design and programming.
