DW8 php testing server, in reverse
Posted 26 July 2006 - 12:50 PM
I have seen posts explaining how to install XAMPP etc to make a static testing server. However, my need is different to that. I have php pages, but don't actually need to see the php code when previewing, more just for aesthetics.
I have just upgraded from DWMX to DW8.
Previouly I would click F12 to preview a page and it would say "to preview pages using server side code a testing server needs to be set up first." I would cancel this and the page would load in Mozilla (but obviously any php content would not equate).
Now, if I try the same technique in DW8, Mozilla suggests I should open the page with another application, offering DW8 as the default.
I don't have a testing server and if I use my web server settings, the page I am previewing can not be found, obviously. Because I haven't uploaded it yet. I don't want to upload it and replace the existing page incase it doesn't work properly. And I don't really want to install phpserver on my computer.
Basically I need to preview a php page in my browser without parsing the php.
How can I get around this issue?

But, I can't understand how this worked so easily with DWMX, and now has come to a halt with DW8. Is there no way of tweaking the settings so the php page still loads, without parsing it.
