Click on sites/manage sites/edit and click through until you get to the ftp page for the site you want.
Click the SAVE checkbox next to "What is your FTP password?"
I've never had a problem with it not connecting to my site. If it is not connecting, recheck your ftp hostname, username, and password. You should also check to see if you are connecting to the correct folder on the ftp server.
I am having issues with Dreamweaver 8 not saving my user name and password for sites that are connected through ftp.
Anyone have this issue?
Is there a way to correct this through settings? Please advise
thanks for the support
Are you using or did you just install IE 7.0? If so... that may be the issue. I just installed it and started getting the same problem - not saving the FTP or testing server user name and passwords. Because Macromedia uses HTM based files to run its program.. I think IE 7.0 has cleared out some scripting capabilities via its "anti invasion software" or whatever they call it now. If you figure it out... great... but think it is going to have to be an unistall of IE 7.0 or a fix for Adobe now.
I'm having this problem also. It is only happening on some of my sites and not others. Annoyingly, the site I use the most is one of the ones that won't hold the data. My system is secure from toddlers, so I would very much like to NOT re-input the User/Password each time I start Dreamweaver. I didn't find any help on the adobe web site. My problem would seem to coincide with my install of IE7, so I'll see if I can find a security setting that affects the behavior. IE7 setting was already responsible for my not being able to debug in Visual Studio 2003.
*NOTE: Whether you have IE7 or not, use the section that references NOT having IE7 installed. I just performed this fix and it works perfectly. You'll have to edit the registry, but the instructions are pretty clear and step-by-step.
