Hi, I am attempting to set up a database connection in dreamweaver 6.1.
Firstly, it asks for some information in the MySQL Connection window…I am not sure what I should put in there.
Connection Name: myconnectionname
MySQL Server: localhost (not sure if this is correct)
User Name: Is this the username of the database, or my ftp username?
Password: well, that depends on the above.
Database: I am assuming the database name?
When I select “test” or “select” I get an http error code 404 file not found. Here are some possible reasons for the problem:
- there is no testing server running on the server machine.
Okay, maybe I am setting up the testing server site definition improperly. Or maybe I have to set up php and mysql on my machine to test?
here are my settings for the testing server:
server model: php MySQL
FTP Host: www.mysite.info
Host Directory: mysite.info/
Login: My login Name
Password: my password
I have selected use Passive FTP
and the URL Prefix…doesn’t look right, but it is
Can anyone help me figure this one out?
