3. Add the new webquarry server to your dreaweaver configuration for this website.  Note that this example ASSUMES that your webquarry account is located on rack19.fast-web-servers.com, your domain name is yourdomain.com and that your username is "yourusername".  Naturally, you will want to change these values to those that you were given when you got your new account information from us.

4. Fill out the "Servers" tab as shown below being careful to substitute your server's actual name and your username with the examples just discussed.
