file panel expand/collapse keeps switching to remote from testing server
Posted on 2004-10-11
I'm running DW 2004 MX on Win XP Pro. I have setup my testing server on my computer's c:/inetpub/wwwroot/sitename
I have my remote setup with my website's hosting URL etc.
When working on a page I setup the file panel view for testing server (then back to local). The first time I 'put' (or <ctr> U) or F12 to upload the page to the testing server it works - the page is 'put' onto the testing server. But, without doing anything more than make changes on my web page, the next time I 'put', upload or F12, the target switches from the testing server to the remote server. I don't see this occur and when trying to go to the testing page using IE6 the old version is still there. The new version has be sent to the remote server. Problem is that it causes my 'live' website to have pages in devlopment status and has overwritten my 'published' pages, which takes time to fix from a backup website (it has happened so ofter I have had to create a b/u).
Does anybody have a clue as to why this is happening? It didn't use to be a problem on my DW MX before upgrading to MX 2004! Is there a default setting somewhere? I've looked at every option on the site management panels (local, testing and remote) testing each one and nothing works?
Help - nobody on other forums of FAQ's (including Macromedia's) have offered a solution.
