    Dreamweaver

    How to find out the root folder of your site? In Dreamweaver, it asks me for "What URL would you use to browse to the root of your site?".

    your root folder is simply were all you save all your dreamweaver work. You can set it anywere you want.

    You don't even need to use it. I have folders out side of my root folder, that I sometimes save my pages to, such as my FTP folder.

    Which root folder? The local one? The local one is just the location of the files on your computer. The remote root folder is the public_html folder so usually something like http://www.yoursite.com would work.

    The virtual folder name eg: "gallery"
    So if my site (virtual folder) was "gallery" then it would be: http://localhost/gallery
    Thanks for you support!

    There are two places to add the correct syntax, you did not learn what I sent you.
    Your server would be http://localhost/ or http://yourservername/
    Please go and learn! as your questions are answered already in the link I sent you before.
    Thanks for you support!

    The local site root does not need to be a http://localhost site. It can be your local folder for whatever corresponds to your website. Thus your folder D:\Mysite would correspond to http://www.mysite.com.

    If you do not use templates, assets or other dreamweaver features, then you do not need to specify a site. If you are using these features, then you do need to specify a site.

    But you have to specify any http:// location in your application before launch.
