Above is a link to my YouTube playlists that I have created for the Friday’s section of ADV2540 Section7219. It is a compilation of some of the topics which are covered in week 3 class. Watch the cPanel tutorials and the Dreamweaver tutorials.
Watch the videos, and do the following for homework:
- Create an email account associated with your portfolio site.
- Set up a site in Dreamweaver that is for your portfolio site.
- Test it to ensure that you can connect to the server.
In order to do this you must purchase a domain and hosting from an internet service provider. If you have used Kionic.com as recommended, then you will need to have the following:
- ftp hostname
The ftp host name will be “www.yourdomain.com” where yourdomain is the url which you purchased. The username/password will be the same as your account username/password.
There are a couple of things that you should know in advance: the “Root Directory” setting when setting up the server will be “public_html/”. The you also need to click on the “more options” and select “Use Passive FTP”. Then when you hit “TEST” you should get a connected response.
