    Forgive me for beating a dead horse but I haven't yet seen a solution that allows SFTP connectivity within Dreamweaver MX 2004 to a Cpanel governed server. On my other servers that aren't running Cpanel, I've had no issues. I understand that other file clients seem to connect fine but I'd prefer to not disturb my flow when I'm designing web sites by jumping from tool to tool.

    So anyone crack this nut? Can you provide some step by step instructions?

    It would be much appreciated.

    First, ensure you have enabled shell for the domain you want to use SFTP with.

    Second, add the site to dreamweaver and put in the publishing path as "home/username/www/" (*Don't forget that since you're in a shell enviornment with SFTP the publishing path needs to be your full HTML path).

    I just tested it and it worked like a champ. Maybe I'm missing what the problem actually is?
