Creating a Local Site in Macromedia Dreamweaver 8

Chapter Description

Macromedia Dreamweaver enables you to develop and deploy your Web sites according to development best practices. As with any programming paradigm, it is recommended that you develop files in an environment separate from which a user can access. This enables developers to make changes to a site without any downtime and allows full testing prior to deploying new files. This chapter will help you work on a web page in a local environment.


Creating a local site enables you to maintain all files and folders using the Files panel. The Files panel gives you the benefits of maintaining links within the site, as well as helps you to deploy your completed and maintained files into production.
