How to publish your web site with Muse

This article describes how to publish a web site created in Adobe Muse to an A2 Hosting server.

This article assumes that you have already created a web site using Muse, and you are ready to publish it to an A2 Hosting web server.

Publishing a Muse web site to an A2 Hosting server

After you create a web site in Muse, you can publish it to the A2 Hosting server associated with your account. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Start Muse and open your web site project.
  2. On the File menu, click Upload to FTP Host. The Connect to FTP Server dialog box appears.
  3. In the FTP Server text box, type example.com:7822, replacing example.com with your own domain name.
    If you have not set up your domain to point to A2 Hosting's name servers yet, you can use the name of the server that hosts your account instead. For information about how to determine your account's server name, please see this article.
  4. In the User Name text box, type your A2 Hosting account (cPanel) username.
    If you do not know your cPanel username or password, you can use the A2 Hosting Customer Portal to view it. For more information, please see this article.
  5. In the Password text box, type your A2 Hosting account (cPanel) password.
    If you do not want to retype your password every time you connect to your account, select the Store Credentials check box.
  6. Click Options.
  7. In the Method list box, select SFTP.
  8. Click Next. The Verification dialog box appears with the MD5 fingerprint of the server.
  9. Select the I trust this server check box, and then click OK. The Upload to FTP Host dialog box appears.
  10. In the Site URL text box, type the URL for your site, such as example.com or example.com/musesite.
  11. Confirm that the Folder on Server text box value is set to public_html.
    This path assumes that you want to upload files to your web site's document root directory. If you want to upload files to a subdirectory instead, then add it to the end of the path. For example, if you specified a site URL in step 10 of example.com/musesite, in the Folder on Server text box you would type public_html/musesite.
  12. In the Upload list box, select All files.
    Because this is the initial site upload, you should upload all of the site's files to the server. For subsequent uploads, however, you can select Only modified files to upload only files that have changed.
  13. Click OK. When Muse finishes uploading the files, the FTP upload complete message appears, and Muse opens the site in a web browser.
