Soldiering on with Aptana, fighting as I go, here’s how I was able to set up automatic synchronization between my project and a remote server accessed through a mounted/mapped drive.
- Set up your project
- Set up your remote preview server
- Set up an (S)FTP deployment connection, make sure you check “Automatically sync my changes”
- Go into your Connections in your project, select the connection you just set up in step 3 and switch it from Remote to Filesystem
Now when you save your file, it will automatically be copied over to your server via mapped drive instead of uploaded through FTP.
As far as I can tell, the only place the “Automatically sync” option appears is in the “Create a FTP connection” dialog, but once you create the FTP connection, you can change it to a Filesystem connection and the sync option remains and works.
