Does anyone know how to set up the testing server in Dreamweaver CS3. It is within the site definition. This is my first dealing with a testing server and I can't get it to work, so that I can preview my files as I work on them.

use the same ftp details as your remote info
ftp.mydomain.com
username
password



make sure you fill in the full http URL at the bottom of the testing server setup
make sure its the URL to the root of you site
eg. http://www.mydomain.com/

save and then in design mode click the Live data View button. (next to the design mode button)

hope this solves your problem

kind regards
