You can export your site settings as an XML file that you can later import into Dreamweaver. Migrating site settings in this way transfers valuable site information to other machines and product versions. You can also share site settings with other users, and back up site settings.
The import/export feature does not import or export site files. It only imports/exports site settings to save you the time of recreating sites in Dreamweaver. For information on creating a new site in Dreamweaver, see Set up a local version of your site.
- Export your site settings regularly so that you have a backup copy if anything happens to the site.
- If you have set up a site, and then are working with several other people, then you can export and then import site settings on the different computers.
If you have created remote server connections with user name and password information, then Dreamweaver prompts you asking if you want to back up site settings for yourself, or if you want to share settings with others.
If you want to back up your site settings for yourself, select Back up my settings and click OK.
Dreamweaver saves remote server login information, such as the user name and password, as well as local path information.
If you want to share your settings with other users, select Share settings with other users and click OK. Dreamweaver does not save information that would not work for other users, such as your remote server login information and local paths.
