Changing your web site - Local method

Last updated March 10, 1999, Copyright © 1999 BigBiz Internet Services, All Rights Reserved

In this example we show how you can make modifications to your web site.  For the local method you make your modifications on your own computer.  This lets you make changes without being connected to the Internet.  Later when you are satisfied with all your changes, you can republish the web site to the server.  This way you always keep a copy of your updated web site on your own computer, which serves as a great backup.

In our example we will change the wording on one of the pages and then republish.

Make your changes locally

1. Select the file you wish to modify by double clicking on its icon.

Re-Publishing your web site (uploading your changes to the server)
