Is there a way to change the new Server-Address of all Sites at once ?

Hi,
In Deamweaver CS6 on Win7_64 I have 100 different Sites (in Sites Manager).
All working fine. All Sites are on the same Server (192.168.234.165)
Now the Server has moved to another address.

In Sites Manager I can open the Settings of the 1st Site and edit the Server-Settings to the new address,
but it changes only the 1st Site - not all.

 

Is there a way to change the new Server-Address of all Sites at once ?

Is there perhaps a file on my PC
where all those sites of the DW-Sites-Manager are listed
and I can change all Addresses there ?

Thanks

I haven't used CS6 in a long time and I no longer have it installed so this is from memory.

 

1. Go to Site > Manage Sites.  Shift + Click to select all sites and Export to .STE files.

2. Save .ste files to a folder called SiteDefinitions inside your local site folder.

3. Open the first .ste file in DW and scroll down to host="xxxxxx..."

4. Copy it.

5. Use Find & Replace (Ctrl + F).  Change host designation from old IP address to new IP address in all .ste files within the SiteDefinitions folder. 

6. Go to File > Save All. Close STE files.

7. Go to Site > Manage Sites.  Import to replace old site definitions with new ones.

 

Post back if you have any questions.

Sorry, there's nothing in DW that can do it that I've ever come across.
