I moved your post from the Get Started forum to the Program Specific forum.

If this is in Error please state the exact Adobe program you are asking about.

Go to Site > Manage Sites or New Site.

 

First select the local site folder's location.  In my example, I have Wamp server installed on my primary hard drive. And my default web folder is www.  If you're using Xampp or Mamp, your folder will be htdocs.   See screenshots below.

Post back if you have any questions.

I'm still confused.  I have defined a site.  

Local Site folder:  C:\Users\Gail Thomas\Documents\Websites\JamestownClass

My original roject used coldfusion originally developed with dreamweaver CS5 (decades ago)

the original folder definiions :

_mmServerScripts  (this folder is also under htrdocs)

cgi-bin (this folder is empty)

cgi-php (the folders  of this folder arer also in htdocs)

etc (the folders  of this folder arer also in htdocs)

htdocs  (this contains all of the source files for my site)

Scripts

Templates

tmp

 

I think(?) I can delete the folders above htdocs, but Scrips and tmp contain other files

It lookd like you placed the testing server in the local definition.

From your pics and message,  I assume the my htdocs is what you called www

I don't see Where/How to define /place a testing server.

 

any help is appreciated.

Gail

So what kind of testing server do you want to set up? php or cold-fusion.

 

I have zero idea about cold-fusion but if you want to set up a php testing environment on your machine you would have to install a free package such as Xampp or Mamp. Have you got that far yet?

 

Once you have one of those set up there will be an 'htdocs' folder in either the Xampp or Mamp folder. You store your website folder in the 'htdocs' folder. If you get that far you should be able to type localhost/yourWebsiteFolderName into the browsers url field. Your website will appear in the browser, assuming you have  an index page and assuming you have switched on the Xampp or Mamp server in the user interface, which comes with either package.

 

Does any of the above sound as though you have already reached that stage.

 

This workflow wont work if you are trying to use your original cold-fusion website files, which include cold-fusion mark-up.
