WebFaction
Community site: login faq

I just started using Microsoft WebMatrix as an IDE of sorts for Wordpress. I have been using WebFaction for a long time and have been developing Wordpress sites for several years.

Is there any documentation or recommended actions in terms of how to Publish a website (In this case, my Wordpress one), to a Site on my WebFaction account? I typically have had the paradigm of creating a dev website on my WebFaction account and modifying the server directly but I want to use local source control. WebMatrix seems to be that solution for me where I can develop locally and hypothetically push to my dev server and then to my production server.

Can anyone at WebFaction or any community members help push me in the right direction? When I attempt to publish via "FTP" in WwbMatrix settings, it is unable to connect to the server. Here are the steps provided by WebMatrix - http://www.microsoft.com/web/post/how-to-publish-a-web-application-using-webmatrix

Thank you for any help in the matter.

Then, in WebMatrix you should use the following settings:
