Do the same but use TurnKeyLinux (raw LAMP or complete with WordPress) on a
network machine plus install a SAMBA file share for the /var/www directory.
This way you do not need WAMP and the share also works for your Mac
developers in the same office. When done you can backup to Amazon S3 and
put the whole thing on a VPS via restore. Highly recommend.

Very interesting video indeed :)) When switching to live view, do the
changes take place in real time? I a currently re-vamping a website that
runs on wordpress, and I would like to create a working mock up for the
client. I have a mirrored version of the website on my own computer so that
I can make this mok up work. The live view simplifies a lot of work,
however I do not want the changes to effect the current website. Tnx

Hi David, It must work through FTP buddy, I didn’t get the reason why its
not working for you. Anyways can you give one more try by following site
setup as it was shown in video and additionally add your site FTP setup and
make it as remote server and local server as testing one ( check boxes ).
If it didn’t work let me know, I will upload a video on it. Have a great

I’ve tried to do this as well but it doesn’t work. Since it’s via FTP what

Jocelyne Vince says:

Excellent video! It worked! Thank you very much for this tutorial!

Technophileshub says:

David, You have to install local server like WAMP or XAMPP for that. I
asked you to do so because there is a possibility that your actual file
may get replaced when you are trying to test your changes.

Very helpful! Thank you!

Technophileshub says:

The reason why it will say retry is because with the present settings of
your server it could not discover. Most probably either you have updated
wrong settings or your server is turned off ( wamp or xampp must be enabled

Hi Joseph, I am not the Pavan you met 🙂

duckrogers007 says:

In Dreamweaver you must specifie remote server, and it should connect fine,
BUT, on your hosting acount check for remote IP access to enable you remote
live access to server. I had the problem with that, and managed to connect
and edit live server version.
