Understanding Dreamweaver's Website Management Capabilities

Dreamweaver's file management system is useful if you are creating web pages along with other people. You use the Check In/Check Out tools in Dreamweaver to make sure that only one person is working on a file at a time. When you have a file checked out, no one else can check that file out until you check it back in, just like when you have a DVD or video checked out from the video store. Dreamweaver marks the file as checked out by you so your collaborators know who to bug if they also need to make changes to the file!

When you check out a file from the remote site, Dreamweaver retrieves a copy of that file from the remote server to ensure that you have the most up-to-date version of the file in your local site. When Dreamweaver gets the file, it overwrites the file that exists on your local drive. The checked-out file appears to Dreamweaver users with your name beside it on the remote server, signaling to your collaborators that you have checked it out. The file has a green check mark beside it in your local site, showing that you currently have that file checked out.
