to automatically synchronize the copy whenever I save to the original document
This did not involve any coding. It's just configuration via GUI within Dreamweaver. Basically, if anyone is interested, here's what I did:
1. Port a copy of the website to the Linux machine. Make sure the directory it's in has permissions set to 755. Oddly, and I don't know why this is, 777 doesn't work here, but 755 does.
2. Choose Manage Sites, and select the site you want to maintain on the Linux machine. Then choose Edit -> Remote Info, and enter the path to the server copy, and check the following boxes: "Refresh remote file list automatically", "Maintain synchronization information", and "Automatically upload files to server on save". I specified Local/Network under the access list.
3. Choose Testing Server, and specify Server Model and Access again, and enter the path again, and check the box next to "Refresh testing file list automatically". Choose OK and Done.
Now why do not you try to you know eliminate vista and put another Ubuntu desktop there and see if you can do the same. This is just an advice and do not know if something powerful like dreamweaver is available for Linux. There are equivalent softwares but I guess not as powerful.
I'd love to go straight Linux, but I am required to use a Vista machine for school. As long as I have to keep one around, I might as well put it to good use.
PS: I overlooked my name. Did I really help? I do not know much about web development.
Yes, you did. You showed me a much easier way to install software on my Linux machine. It was a couple of days ago, when I was trying to install Apache on my machine. I posted a question in another thread, and you helped me out there, by telling me about Synaptics. Until you helped me, I had no idea such a critter existed!
Ultimately, I want to be able to do installs from the command line, but I'm not there yet. So thank you very much. You helped me get over a major hurdle, and I appreciate it!
