Connecting Adobe Contribute to your website

This is a quick, no image walk through for setting up Adobe Contribute. Depending which version you are using there may be a step or two different, but it is basically the same, and it is a fairly logical setup.

Adobe Contribute allows you to connect to your website to make changes and updates. If you would like to know more about Adobe Contribute, or download the trial version visit this website:

To set up Contribute (This only needs to be done once per website):

Click the Website Connection icon

Click Next

Type in your website address (you only need to put, you don’t need the page names eg.

Click Next

Choose FTP from the Drop Down menu, which will bring up some fields to fill in.

Type in your FTP details (You will have received (or will need to get) these from whoever is hosting your website)

Click Next, this will attempt to connect to your website to make sure the FTP details are correct. Note that it may take a little while to complete this step.

(This step may or may not appear depending on the version) To find out what folder on the server you need to select click on
Select the appropriate folder (Most likely public_html or your domain name, but if you are unsure you should have, or be able to get, this information from your host)

Click Next

You may be asked about Subversion Connection, this is optional (and may or may not appear depending on the version).

Click Next

Enter your name and email address.

Setup is complete!

Now every time you open Contribute, your website will appear as an icon on the starting page which you can just click on to open.
