You can use Dreamweaver to copy an existing remote site (or any branch of a remote site) to your local disk and edit it there, even if you didn’t use Dreamweaver to create the original site. You must have the correct connection information, and connect to the site’s remote server, before you can edit the site.
- Create a local folder to contain the existing site and set up the folder as the local folder for the site. (See Set up a local version of your site.)
You must locally duplicate the entire structure of the relevant branch of the existing remote site.
- Set up a remote folder, using the remote access information about the existing site. You must connect to the remote site to download the files to your computer before you can edit them. (See Connect to a remote server.)
- If you want to work with the entire site, select the root folder of the remote site in the Files panel, and click Get File(s) in the toolbar to download the entire site to your local disk.
