Hour 21. Managing and Uploading Your Pro... > Moving Your Site onto a Remote Serve...

Moving Your Site onto a Remote Server

If your server is located on a LAN, you normally connect to the server when you log on to your computer, and you stay connected all day. If you access the remote server over the Internet using FTP, you connect while getting and putting files onto the server, and then you disconnect. Even if you don't disconnect on your end, your connection will most likely timeout on the server if you have been inactive for a period, and you will need to reconnect.

The Site panel contains buttons, shown in Figure 21.8, enabling you to transfer files to and from the remote site. You can transfer files to your local site by selecting the Get button, and you can transfer files to the remote site by selecting the Put button. Later this hour, you'll learn about the Synchronize command, which is a better way to transfer files. The Synchronize command detects whether a local file (or remote file) is newer and transfers it only if necessary, thus saving transfer time.
