What have you actually got specified for your remote root?

Check HTMLEditor/editor/filemanager/connectors/php/config.php to see what is there. This should be based on the settings you assigned for remote server in your site definition.

This is mine:

global $Config ;
$WA_EditorLocalRoot = '/yeractual/Site/';
$WA_EditorRemoteRoot = '/html/';
$WA_curURL = strtolower((isset($_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]))?$_SERVER["PHP_SELF"]:"");
$EditorAssumedRoot = $WA_EditorRemoteRoot;
if ((strpos($WA_curURL,strtolower($WA_EditorLocalRoot)) !== false && strpos($WA_curURL,strtolower($WA_EditorLocalRoot)) == 0) &&

(strlen($WA_EditorLocalRoot) >= strlen($WA_EditorRemoteRoot) || strpos($WA_curURL,strtolower($WA_EditorLocalRoot)) === 0)) {
$EditorAssumedRoot = $WA_EditorLocalRoot;

// SECURITY: You must explicitly enable this "connector". (Set it to "true").
// WARNING: don't just set "$Config['Enabled'] = true ;", you must be sure that only
// authenticated users can access this file or use some kind of session checking.
$Config['Enabled'] = true;

// Path to user files relative to the document root.
$Config['UserFilesPath'] = 'files/';
$Config['UserFilesPath'] = $EditorAssumedRoot.$Config['UserFilesPath'];

Note the two lines:

$WA_EditorLocalRoot = '/yeractual/Site/';
$WA_EditorRemoteRoot = '/html/';

The first is the location of the site folder on my local machine testing server. The second is the remote site root, (as defined in my site settings).

In Dreamweaver, look at your 'Files' panel. Select 'Remote View'. Scroll up to the very top level directory. Is this the same as what you have for '$WA_EditorRemoteRoot' ?
