I’m trying to use Microsoft WebMatrix to manage my WordPress site. (Please, no gripes about Microsoft products, OK?) I can use the FTP protocol to connect, but FTP cannot be used to manage the MySQL database for my website. There is a Web Deploy protocol that can be selected, but I am unable to validate the connection using that Protocol. It almost seems like a different server is needed, or else the protocol is not supported by Dreamhost.
Is “Web Deploy” a protocol supported by Dreamhost? Can I get a .PublishSettings file to use to configure my connection to Dreamhost?
