Does anyone know how to set up dreamweaver so I can access a database created with dreamhost?
There is 4 steps that it has to set
up the connection to the database (1) define a site, (2)choose a document type, I chose PHP, but wasn’t really sure what to choose, however, i’m not sure it matters that much, (3)set up site’s testing server. This is where I had some difficulty however here is how i filled out the information: Server Model: PHP MySQL
FTP Host: sake.dreamhost.com
Host Directory: germantowncog.cggc.org/
Used passive FTP
URL Prefix: http://sake.dreamhost.com/germantowncog.cggc.org/
when i test this it works fine…however just double check to make sure i set that up right.
(4) create a connection by clicking the + button above
When i click it it brings a drop down list with “MySQL Connection”, so i click that, and i get another window, this is where i am very unsure of how to fill out the information, but this is what i typed in:
Connection Name: germantownPrayList
MySQL Server: pray.germantowncog.cggc.org
User Name: jharner
Database: ____________ [select]
I click select, and it goes through a series of things to connect to the server, then i get an error message:
- There is no testing server running on the server machine
- The testing server specified for this site does not map to the
URL. Verify that the URL prefix maps to the root of the site.
Windows sucks…Linux is better!
