DreamWeaver 2019, Edit WHMCS Template on remote server set up?

Seeking config for a WHMCS Template I've set up on my server and hope to use DW 2019 to edit it?

Surely this is a common task for Dreamweaver site dev, yes?

The FTP connection is simple enough, my questions are in context to managing .dbf and .css as my WHMCS template is "Responsive" and developed with HTML5 and CSS3, based on a Bootstrap Framework.

Can anyone provide remote server set up steps?

Thx,

Jonathan

I know what WHCMS is and I cannot understand your desire to use it with Dreamweaver.

WHM vs WHMCS vs Cpanel - Pre-Sales Questions - WHMCS.Community

To use DW as a code editor,  your project files must reside on your local computer in a defined local site folder.   This  workflow allows for editing and testing files locally then uploading to a remote server for deployment online.  DW has always worked that way ever since it was introduced in the 90's by Macromedia.

Sorry, but the question is confusing.

You state that you have already uploaded the site to the remote and that there is no problem with FTP. What then is missing when you ask for remote server setup?

Could it be that you are referring to a WordPress template? For more info see Create And Edit Your Ideal WordPress Theme In Dreamweaver - WhoIsHostingThis.com

Thank you for your reply, let me try to clarify things as I value your earnest support.

No this is not WordPress.

It is in fact a next-generation "Responsive" WHMCS site template based on a Bootstrap Framework. It also is written HTML5 and CSS3, not PHP as used in WordPress shell. <WHMCS | Web Hosting Billing & Automation Platform >

I can FTP into my cPanel based VPS -- but had hoped to utilize Dreamweaver 2019 for the GUI and other site pages and attributes?

If you don't know what WHMCS is I'm inclined to think that Dreamweaver 2019 may not support it, as shocking as that seems.

Does Dreamweaver 2019 not support WHMCS site development based on HTML5 & bootstrap?

I think you will find that very few code editors, (if any) support WHMCS template on-line editing.

Dw, like all code editors can edit html, css, js files, but doing so whilst connected on-line to the server, is like asking for a code editor to be used as a 'dashboard' for an application.

You could submit a feature request, as there has been a number of posts in which users have expressed surprise that Dw is not able to act as a cms dashboard. But, I would be surprised if such a feature was implemented.
