GoLive 6 TutorialsLATEST TIP from GoLive in 24 site - Tip #92
Several things can cause the files in your Site window to get out of sync with your web server, including:
• somebody else moving or updating files on the server
• a corrupt or recreated GoLive site file
• server settings including daylight savings time changes
If the Site window insists on uploading files you know are up to date, GoLive 6 fixes things easily! With your site window in front, just choose Site>FTP Server>Sync Modification Times All... It might look like it's uploading files, but it's not. It's just synchronizing the modification times of the files on the remote server with those on your local computer.
Check out tip #92 for a screenshot and more details.
