Click on the "Site" menu item at the top, click "New Site" and fill in the blanks. Give the site a name and browse to the folder that contains the files for the site. Then set up the web server particulars. Click on "Servers" on the left, click the plus sign to add a server. You can have more than one, for example, one local and one remote. Do you have a local web server set up on the machine?

Many years ago I used Dreamweaver then I got heavily into ASP.NET and Visual Studio. Recently I abandoned all that for PHP when I migrated over to the Mac platform. Now I'm back to using Dreamweaver.

On the Windows platform you can use a WAMPSERVER local web server:

For Mac, you can use MAMP:

These are two examples. There are others out there.

I use cs5.5.  Like all of dreamweaver, it is important to set up the "local" site and testing server correctly as that is what dreamweaver uses to help you with some of the wizards.
