files on the server are synchronized prior to starting the server.
If they are not, the project and the files are automatically updated
on the remote server when it is started.</li>
<li>A Console view opens in the workbench. It will take a minute to
start the server. If the server fails to start, check for the reason
that it failed in the Console.</li>
