I want to upload the site into my cpanel (and remove my old site from there which was created on Frontpage).
I have some questions about this.
1. My DW website has a contact form which i created through coffeecup formbuilder (as i dont know how to create a form with DW). I basically copied the contact form code from coffeecup into my dreamweaver page. However, I cannot actually see the contact form in the design view of the page. there is just a box that says form. Is there a way of being able to see and then test the contact form before I upload the new site?
2. Once I have confirmed the contact form is working I would like to upload the new site. Is it a matter of just using the ftp feature in DW, removing all the previous files on the remote server, and then just uploading the site?
If anybody can supply me with step by step instructions, that would be great, as i am still getting used to the DW features.
I am using PHP, linux server.
I suggest loading your new design into a sub-directory on your current site to test all the pages, links, forms, etc. By doing this, your site won't be "down" while you make the change. Once you have established that everything is working fine, upload the site over the old one deleting the sub-directory you created to test the new design.
