I’m on a metered internet connection. From reading the forums, I got the idea that I could publish my site locally, and then once I’m happy with it publish it to the real server. Then I read that I need something like MAMP to view the local site. Then I read that I have to change the links (make them relative) for it to work. Then I read about problems with the directory structure. Then I figured I don’t know how to do this.
Is this correct: if I use RW 7 and publish to local folder, do I then just ftp that folder structure up to proper top level directory on the server?
If I publish locally, what changes do I need to make to either the entire project or the local folders in order for the site to work once uploaded? (file names, folder names, etc.)
If I put my images in a resource subfolder in the locally published site, and upload them to a resource folder of the same name on the server, will image links still work? Or is this handled via the normal publish locally option?
Sorry for all the questions. The more I tried to figure it out myself, the more confused I got. I’m working through Joe’s RW book, and lots of tutorials, and it would be great if I didn’t use up all my data allotment practicing.
