Introduction

Setting up a connection to a website is the essential first step in Contribute. A Contribute connection is like a set of car keys; without it, you aren't going anywhere. Luckily, Macromedia has greatly simplified the process and made a sophisticated technological procedure as easy as starting a car.

To edit web or Intranet pages, you must be able to retrieve the pages from and send pages to the host computer. (The host computer is the system that delivers or serves the web pages that browsers request.) Although the process is known by many names (downloading, uploading, getting, and putting, among others), you're basically copying files from one computer (the web server) to another (yours). To protect the site from unauthorized changes, this level of file access is restricted. Establishing a connection is how you get that access in Contribute.
