Uploading your Dreamweaver Files to the Astro Web Server

Use Adobe Dreamweaver to upload your website directly to your Astro account.

Introduction

Temple students and employees can host web sites on a central web server called Astro. When Computer Services created an AccessNet account for you, an account with a public_html directory was also created on Astro. This directory provides a storage area for all your Web files.

When you use Adobe Dreamweaver, you can upload your site directly to your Astro account. Before you can upload any files, however, you need to set up a Dreamweaver connection to your Astro account. This guide provides instructions for setting up this connection, uploading your files, and viewing your web site.

Note: These instructions assume you are using Adobe Dreamweaver CS 5.

Viewing Your Site

You or anyone else can now view your page by typing the following address:

http://

For example, if your AccessNet username is jdoe, you would type:

http://astro.temple.edu/~jdoe

The tilde character (~) is located on the upper left of the keyboard. When you specify this address, the system will display the file named index.htm, index.html, default.htm, or default.html. If you wish to directly access another Web page in your account, type the filename, such as:

http://astro.temple.edu/~jdoe/report.html
