For all Solution Packs / PHP web apps, you will want to upload all the files and folders that have been provided. Some Solution Packs require that you modify various files before uploading. If that is necessary, make sure you have completed those steps before proceeding with these instructions. This tutorial demonstrates the process for uploading files using three different methods. Choose the method that works best for you.
- Using the Dreamweaver Files panel
- Using Windows Explorer (Windows XP and Vista users)
- Using Transmit with OS X (Mac OSX users)
Note: Although this How To only covers using three FTP clients, there are a wide range of FTP tools to choose from. If one of these listed below does not work for you, you might want to give something else a try, such as FileZilla.
Within the Dreamweaver Files panel, you can upload all your files through FTP to your live server. Before you can do this, you will have to have
configured the Remote Info settings within your defined site.
The upload process will begin and a dialog will display the progress.
Built into Windows XP and Vista is a standard FTP client that will work with most hosting providers. Follow these steps to connect to this client, and
upload your files.
The built-in FTP client with OSX only allows for downloading files form your web server. For this reason, we recommend using a very popular FTP client known as Transmit instead. You can obtain and install a version of Transmit from this address: http://www.panic.com/transmit/

You do not mention how to set the required permissions and what are they exactly?

Oren, thanks for pointing this out. We added a note in the last section. Basically you need read/write/create permissions, but it's best to contact your host if you don't know how to set these on your server.
