Dreamweaver - sync only updated php files?

5+ Year Member

Msg#: 4053438 posted 10:43 pm on Jan 3, 2010 (gmt 0)

Is it possible to only sync certain file types? Perhaps I've changed 5 php files and 470 mp3 files, but I only need to upload the php files and don't want to wait 12 hours for those mp3's to update?

The standard sync option probably won't help, but I'm wondering if a Find function might? Soemthing like Find All *.php, then I can select the find results and choose to upload them?

Yes, you can do this. Expand the viewing panel to show local and remote views then sort the local list by file type. It's then just a case of selecting the type of files you want to upload and uploading them.

When I sort by file type it sorts each directory by file type, not the entire site. So I have like 600 directories each with hundereds of files. Its not like I have 10,000 files all in one gigantic directory :(

So is what you're saying still applicable? I'm not sure I understand then.

If you cannot do this with dreamweaver and need a separate tool, you could do this with rsync.

It is also fast - probably much faster than uploading with Dreamweaver if the latter takes hours (as you say) to upload a few hundred files.

I have been a long time user of NetLoad (long since out of business) and recently changed over to Site Publisher. This tracks what is on the server in a cache and will quickly upload only the changed files - html and images. Quickly means 2-10 seconds to see what is needed to upload from 3,000 files plus upload time.
