Dreamweaver MX Config Again

apps

#1

Me again. I am still having problems setting up Dreamweaver/PHP/MySQL on Dreamhost.

I believe that my Local Info/Remote Info/Testing Server settings are correct. The problem is in setting the MySQL Connection. I have four different working MySQL User accounts to this database, but can’t get the DW/DH connection to work with any of them. My guess is that DW is trying to log onto the actual DH MySQL machine, rather than just sending it queries. The login errors don’t show up in my site’s error log.

I’m surprised there is no info in this forum about using Dreamweaver. Other DH customers MUST be using it successfully, aren’t they?

Two corrections to my post (so far). I am User-X of last week’s post, and the HTTP Address I gave as http//test.mysite.com/dwtest/ is wrong. It’s actually http//www.mysite.com/dwtest/.
