Using Dreamweaver to FTP

As STORM uses the FTPS transfer protocol by default rather than plain FTP there are some settings to be aware of when connecting via FTP in Dreamweaver.

Here are the settings:

Servername: This can be whatever you like

Connect Using: Make sure you select ‘ftp over SSL/TLS (explicit encryption)’ from the drop down menu

FTP Address: This should be your servers hostname or IP address, for example “”

Username: Your STORM FTP Username

Password: Your STORM FTP Password

Root Directory: Important! Leave this blank

Web URL: Your sites URL

You will also need to make sure that the passive mode check box is ticked.
