The Manage Sites dialog box is your gateway into various Dreamweaver site functions. From this dialog box, you can initiate the process for creating a new site, editing an existing site, duplicating a site, removing a site, or importing or exporting a site’s settings.

Note:

The Manage Sites dialog box does not let you connect to or publish files to a remote server. For instructions on connecting to a remote server, see Connect to a remote server. If you are trying to connect to an existing website, see Edit an existing remote website.
