Not all alerts are errors.
Once I change my connection file with remote info and upload it to the server, I purposefully set the permissions on it to read only so that it cannot get over written by the local copy.
When I _dont_ see that alert on uploading to the server, I worry that I forgot to do that and go to check to make sure that database connected pages are still working.
Alerts are just information. it could be bad information or good information.
