correction: "About a week later in NC, I installed iLive 08" - iLiFe




I'm not crazy about iWeb for other reasons (haven't played with the iLife '08 version yet). So how does one go about updating the same site from multiple client computers and keeping them all in sync? Is there any software that does this that isn't fully server side? To be certain, I can log into MT from anywhere and pick up where I left off. MT also runs fully on my server.

To do this with iWeb, iWeb would have to download your site each time, let you play with a copy in the local sandbox and then upload the finished product. That could be done using "rsync" to minimize the up/down time and the server copy would have to be the "authoritative" one in a multi-client scenario. Still, I can see ways that this would get ugly quickly. Point is, iWeb is designed for a single user on a single computer to create a web page in point and click fashion. Nothing fancier.

Transmit's Coda might be a better package for what you want to do. I'm not sure if it support multiple clients but I'm betting they'll be more responsive to the suggestion than Apple will.
