Moving or copying freeway sites.

Hi
I know I have seen this addressed some time before on this board but blowed if I can find it - so sorry in advance if you find you are repeating advice.

I have a freeway site (Site A) which I have a uploaded to a domain which I use to show the progress of this site to its owner.

I now have the beginnings of a second site (Site B) built in its own file which I would like to show to the client.

Is there a correct way to copy site B, its master page and all the pages and links into a subfolder/subdomain of site A without causing problems?

Can a whole site be copied in other words. And come the day it gets its very own host, can it be easily returned to its own dedicated file/folder?

I did do it on a page by page basis and had to reconnect all the links. This could be a pain when the site is complete with many links to tie back up.

Best wishes

Richard

One simple way to do this is to go into your site with an FTP client,
add a folder (normally at the web-root level, where your top level
‘index.html’ page lives). Then set your Site B document to upload
from Freeway straight into that folder. Include the folder name in
the path when setting up the upload for the first time.

You could also make the new folder from within your Site A Freeway
document; just add a new folder in the Site panel and upload - it’ll
be created on the server for you even if you don’t have any pages
inside in that Site A document.

When it comes time to move Site B to its own hosted domain just
change the upload details to the new location. The folder in the
original location will stay there, so you may want to remove that
afterwards. Delete it with your FTP client or from Site A’s Site
panel, depending on where you made it in the first place.

Thanks for the guidance which I have followed in conjunction with that of David Owen which you may well have seen on another thread. It is a neat solution and I have it up and running. Splendid.

Best wishes
