Hello,
I've got about 1500 websites in a folder, which are all configured with Dreamweaver.

Because of Dropbox, the name of the folder has changed, so the path for each website has also changed. Is there any way to change the Dreamweaver configuration of all the websites at once, or I need to do it one by one?

Well, I'm not quite sure that switching to github is a transparent solution, without having your own git server somewhere, because I don't think hosting 1000+ websites can be possible to host using a free solution.

Personally, in my own workflow, I have quite a few websites 100+ in production and almost all of them are bricks that other teams use through Dreamweaver. Therefore and to avoid keeping an infinite list of sites in the DW IDE, I only use.STE configuration files.

on a protected space I systematically store these configuration files there. changing the file paths within these files results in a replacement system operation, for my part (and you will certainly laugh) I use Director (from macromedia) to perform mass file manipulations in a very flexible way.

Anyway, this is the track I would use, so in short..... export all your sites as.STE. Change the paths in batch processing (Note PAD+++ must do this perfectly)... and reimport your STE with the new paths...

Are you actually keeping your local site folders in Dropbox?   I don't work that way.  I keep my sites on my primary hard drive.  And I make copies for dropbox or external drives.

To answer your question about bulk renaming site folders, I'm sorry I don't have a solution for you.

Thanks Nancy for your answer
my local sites are in Dropbox, so that my colleagues can work on them too.

Git might be a better option.  

Learn how to download and use Git with Dreamweaver CC.
