Connect to your MyWeb website in Expression Web 3
STEP 1: Click on the Site menu and select Open Site.
STEP 2: In the "Location" box, type the path for your website, and then click Open. Use the format https://www.myweb.ttu.edu/eRaider (where eRaider is your eRaider username).
NOTE: You must include the "s" after "http" when connecting to manage your site. Users browsing to your site will not need the "s".
STEP 3: If prompted for credentials, type your eRaider name and password and click OK. You may be prompted multiple times.
NOTE: Type your username in the format ttu\eRaider, where eRaider is your eRaider username.
STEP 4: If you would like to edit your site live on the server so that your changes show up immediately when saving a file, select Edit live Web site now, click OK, and skip to "STEP 8" below.
If you would like to edit the website files on your computer and upload the changes to the server later, select Edit local copy now and click OK. Then, proceed to the next step.
STEP 5: Configure the following settings, and then click Next:
- Select WebDAV
- Web Site Location: https://www.myweb.ttu.edu/your_eRaider_username
- Use Encrypted Connection (SSL): Checked
STEP 6: You may use the default local copy location, or you may type or browse for a new location. Click Next when you are ready to proceed.
If the location you chose does not exist, you will be prompted to create the folder. Choose Yes if you agree. Otherwise, you will have to revise the location.
STEP 7: Click Finish.
If you selected the option to edit your site live, any changes you save will show up immediately on your website.
If you selected the option to edit your files locally, any changes you make will not be reflected on your website until you publish them. You may move files from your computer (column on the left) to the server (column on the right) or publish all changes at once using the arrows in the middle of the screen.
