I have a site that was created with a template, and it is working from the website, but I need to update the template, but it isn't anywhere on the server, how can that be?

Thanks in advance!

Dreamweaver Templates (DWT files) are a proprietary feature that works in DW local site files only.  To work correctly, DWT files must be in the local site's Templates folder.   There's no practical reason to put a Template on the server except to have it as a backup file.

The template file should be located in the Templates folder. If it is not there, then someone has removed it.

Thxs, Ben. To be clear, the template does not need to be on the server?

No, it does need to be in the development environment.
