Creating a Dreamweaver site definition
If you use Adobe Dreamweaver, we strongly recommend taking a few minutes to set up a Dreamweaver site definition for each of the websites you work on. A site definition stores your Secure FTP connection information, allowing you to upload and download files between your local site and your web server without having to leave Dreamweaver.
