  1. Thank you very much for this! After a first successful attempt, however, Dreamweaver is now displaying an error message saying: "Dynamically-related files could not be resolved because the site definition is not correct for this server." I didnt change any server setting, so i have no idea where to find an answer to this.

  2. I uderstand bringing in dynamic elements like the Header, footer, sidebar but.
    I can only  see that on the index page, I cant see the Contact form, Portfolio, Archive, single page post. I get an error. how can I edit the rest of the site?

  3. Do the same but use TurnKeyLinux (raw LAMP or complete with WordPress) on a network machine plus install a SAMBA file share for the /var/www directory.  This way you do not need WAMP and the share also works for your Mac developers in the same office.  When done you can backup to Amazon S3 and put the whole thing on a VPS via restore.  Highly recommend.

  4. Very interesting video indeed :)) When switching to live view, do the changes take place in real time? I a currently re-vamping a website that runs on wordpress, and I would like to create a working mock up for the client. I have a mirrored version of the website on my own computer so that I can make this mok up work. The live view simplifies a lot of work, however I do not want the changes to effect the current website. Tnx 

  5. In Dreamweaver you must specifie remote server, and it should connect fine, BUT, on your hosting acount check for remote IP access to enable you remote live access to server. I had the problem with that, and managed to connect and edit live server version.

  6. David, You have to install local server like WAMP or XAMPP for that. I asked you to do so because there is a possibility that your actual file may get replaced when you are trying to test your changes.

  7. Hi David,

    It must work through FTP buddy, I didn't get the reason why its not working for you.

    Anyways can you give one more try by following site setup as it was shown in video and additionally add your site FTP setup and make it as remote server and local server as testing one ( check boxes ).

    If it didn't work let me know, I will upload a video on it.
    Have a great day.

  8. What if I want to edit a wordpress that's already online on my server? I tried connecting it via FTP but it didn't work…can you show us?

  9. The reason why it will say retry is because with the present settings of your server it could not discover. Most probably either you have updated wrong settings or your server is turned off ( wamp or xampp must be enabled ).

  10. Hello Technophileshub, everything goes perfect untill i click on Discover… it shows error and says retry but it keeps without working. Any advises? What should I do? What's wrong? Thanks a lot!

  11. Hi Humberto,

    It can be edited and fatal error can be the reason for many things. Please ensure that you turned on live view and at the same time please check if you have maintained site specific code hints or not. Hope this helps. Thank you.

  12. There are 4 different softwares bud, but they are specific to operating system.
    LAMP = Linux Apache MySQL PHP which is for Linux Operating system
    WAMP = Windows Apache MySQL PHP which is for Windows Operating system
    MAMP = Mac Apache MySQL PHP which is for Mac operating system
    XAMPP = Cross Apache MySQL PHP Perl which is for all the 4 platforms and perl is an addition
