Folks here is my prob !
I have a ubuntu 8.04 file server & I have just installed LAMP.. I know the default apache website location is /var/www
I am developing on a windows client using Dreamweaver (with IIS installed !).

I need to setup the site in Dreamweaver but have probs with the path. Should I share the /var/www dir and map a drive to it or is there a better way... Initially I had thought that I would work with the files directly on the server but in hindsight I think Id rather keep them on my laptop & upload to test !

What would be the best way to acheive this ???

You can work on your files locally and set a ftp server on ubuntu to your /var/www dir.
Take a look on my article

in the third step you need to give the adress of your testing server on ubuntu...
