Catastrophe Proof Website Update Checklist

EVERY time you need to update your website, you need to do the following after you open Dreamweaver.
  1. Connect to the server and Synchronize.
    • If you’re unsure about the status of YOUR files, ‘GET newer files from REMOTE’.
    • If you think you have something newer on YOUR computer, ‘GET and PUT newer files’.
    • Approve changes if needed.
  2. Double-check the FTP is looking at YOUR files by setting the location to ‘LOCAL’.
  3. After you make changes:
    • Save the HTML file.
    • Check the file in a LOCAL browser. (Right + Click on file go-to ‘Open in browser’ and click on the appropriate browser).
    • PUT the local file to the REMOTE manually.
    • Check the website on the internet to see if your update worked by using Shift + Refresh (🔄) on the appropriate page.
