Question

Managing local root folder without being able to access it


Hello everyone

I'm planning a website at the moment but I'm wondering about a slight issue, regarding the local root folder of a website.

Currently, I'm using Dreamweaver to create a website and I have had no problems of uploading my files to a site through Dreamweaver before. But I will not have access to my computer for about one month every year. However, I have a laptop available during that month. But since my local root folder is located on my stationary computer it seems impossible for me to, in any way, use that laptop to manage my site (upload new files to the server).

Any ideas?

I re-post this, since I didn't get any replies to the previous thread.

So your looking to update your site from a remote computer? Just simply download an ftp program such as (filezilla or fireftp (firefox). This will allow you to upload files to your server. Once you gain access to your stationary computer just simply download the files to your local machine.

Do you posses the ftp login details to your website??
Are you hosting your website on a dedicated server or a shared/reseller account ?

I don't have a host at the moment. I will probably use shared hosting and probably MDDhosting service.
