Previewing server side scripts

Server side scripts such as PHP or ASP need to be executed on web server, before correct preview can be generated. WeBuilder provides a feature called mappings, which passes scripts through web server before previewing them.

Mappings allow to map your local file system or FTP folders to web addresses. For example, you can map c:\wwwroot to http://localhost/

To add, edit or remove mapping:

  1. On the Options menu, click Preferences.
  2. In Preferences window, click Preview folder.
  3. Click Mappings.
  4. Click Add, Delete or Edit, to add, delete or edit a mapping.


  • You need to have web server installed on your computer to preview server side scripts locally without uploading them to web. And your web server must be configured so that it can run these scripts.
