Step 1:
Open DreamWeaver MX. Click on Site and choose New Site.

Step 2:
Click
on the Advanced Tab. For site name, enter a phrase that describes your
site. Dreamweaver will choose a local root folder for you. Also, enter
your HTTP address and click on the Remote Info category.

Step 3:
Change Access to FTP. Then enter your FTP Host which is your domain name. For Host Directory please type in /html or /users/userwebXXXXX/html where XXXXX are the numbers in your FTP username. Then enter your login name and password.

Step 4:
Still on the same screen, place a check in Automatically upload files to the server on save.

Step 5:
Click on the connect to remote site button.

Step 6:
Make sure the second drop down reads Remote View. You will see a list of files in your /html folder.

Step 7:
DoubleClick any file, edit it, and choose save. Dreamweaver will automatically update it on the server.

Step 8:
Should you ever add images or other files that need to be upload, select local view from the site drop down.
