    3233Using the sftp program, begin a session with the hostname, username and password we've sent you. You will see a directory listing that includes a folder with the same name as your web site domain. Click on that folder and then open the sub-directory called "web". You can upload and manage your site files in that directory.

     35If you are using the proprietary Dreamweaver client, the folder named after your web site domain ''might'' be displayed as a file, rather than a folder, which will make it impossible to enter the folder and upload your content to the correct location. To work around this limitation, specify the full path to your web directory in the Dreamweaver connection screen's "Host directory" field. Your full path will be a variation of: /home/members/GROUPNAME/sites/DOMAINNAME/web. If you are not sure what your path is, leave it blank and connect. You should see the path in to top right corner in the "Files" windows under "Remote site."
