hi~ i have been using fetch to upload my web site and blog created in iweb. both the blog folders: yogaleah.com and site folders kaliyugayoga.com open under the same connection with fetch and i can upload my work at the same time. but, i just started a new company and site and now i realized i have to open a new connection with fetch to upload rasaretreats.com. all my stuff is hosted with dreamhost under the same account. why do i have to connect separately with my new domain? i don't remember what i did when setting up my blog, but how come that one opens with my other site? thank you!

I'm sorry, but I'm not quite sure I understand the problem you are experiencing.
Are you saying when you connect with Fetch to make changes to yogaleah.com, you can see both the folders for yogaleah.com and kaliyugayoga.com, so you can make changes to either one?
But you cannot see the folder for rasaretreats.com, and you need to enter different information in the Fetch New Connection dialog in order to see the folder for that website?
Is that correct? If not, could you please try to explain the problem again?
when i connect to kaliyugayoga.com with fetch both folders for yogaleah.com and kaliyugayoga.com are there, as well as some other old websites too.
however, to get to my rasaretreats.com folders i have to open a new connection to rasaretreats.com, new password etc.
its no problem now that i know i have to do it separately, but i couldn't figure out why and how i had set up the other sites.
does that make better sense?

Yes, I think I understand now. I'm afraid this all has to do with how your hosting provider - Dreamhost - set things up, and you'd have to ask them why it's set up differently and not all consolidated together; I don't think Fetch is involved here. We're not familiar enough with how Dreamhost sets things up to provide advice on this situation.
The only suggestions I have are that you can create shortcuts in Fetch that save the connection information for each folder so you don't have to re-enter it each time. The you can get the information for each server by choosing the shortcut's name from the shortcuts pop-up menu or clicking on its icon in the Fetch Shortcuts window. For information on creating shortcuts, please see the Creating a shortcut topic in Fetch Help (or just click the link here).
You can also create droplet shortcuts that allow you to upload files to different servers just by dragging the files to an icon in your Dock or the Finder. For more information about them, see the droplet shortcuts topic in Fetch Help (or, again, click the link here).
So, if Dreamhost can't consolidate things for you, perhaps the shortcuts or droplets will make it a little easier to switch between the two.
Please let us know if you have further questions.
