Q. How do I use WebDAV in Dreamweaver?

A. Before you can use Dreamweaver's built-in WebDAV client, you'll need to set up a site definition. Use the instructions linked below to set up a site definition for your site.

Please note: due to the ongoing redesign project, the WebDAV connection URLs for most department websites has changed. In these instructions, where you see "www.sonoma.edu" use "web.sonoma.edu" instead.

WebDAV URLs have not changed. They still begin with https://dav.sonoma.edu/.


Note: To acess the web server you must use Dreamweaver 8 or higher, or another supported WebDAV client that supports connections using Secure Sockets Layer (SSL). See the list of supported WebDAV clients.

This video shows the process of setting up a site definition in CS4, but the process is very similar in more recent versions.
