Publishing a RapidWeaver web site to an A2 Hosting server

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

  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.
  6. In the Path text box, type public_html.
    The public_html 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.
  7. Click Test Connection.
  8. When you receive a Connection Test Successful message, click OK. If you do not receive this message, verify the settings you provided in steps 3 to 5, and then try again.
  9. Click Publish. RapidWeaver uploads the files to your A2 Hosting account.
  10. When the Finished publishing message appears, click OK. You can view your web site files in any web browser.
    If you need to change any of the publishing settings in the future, click the File menu, and then click Publishing Settings.
