Upload

Before launching a ready HTML publication in the browser right from your PC without uploading to you server some features might be blocked. This is caused by the Flash Player’s security policy for SWF files used locally. To solve this problem, you need to upload your book onto the website, or to add the book’s catalogue (folder) to the Trusted Locations list, with the help of this Adobe online editor: http://www. macromedia. com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager04a. html

Now you can open your book in any browser or upload it to your FTP-server. Just move or copy files and folders from a destination folder to a directory of your server via any FTP client.
