Hello There!

Dreamweaver won't show my .php page!?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

didn't know wether to post this in the newbie bit or here but anyway - I'm new to dreamweaver/php/mysql and dynamic websites. I'm using Dreamweaver MX 2004, PHP version 4.3.4, MySQL version 4.0.15-standard and apache (1.3.29 (Unix)). I've struggled valiantly to create a database through my server cPanel and create a mysql connection to it from dreamweaver (called it "con1"). I've created a recordset and plopped it into my php page. Now when I use the dreamweaver live link option a load of errors come up along the lines of my testing server has disappeared in a puff of smoke or - its ignoring .php files. If I preview in browser I get this error on a separate browser page:

 

Warning: main(Connections/con1.php): failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/mcpalmer/public_html/dynaSite/dynaSite.php on line 1

 

Fatal error: main(): Failed opening required 'Connections/con1.php' (include_path='.:/usr/lib/php:/usr/local/lib/php') in /home/mcpalmer/public_html/dynaSite/dynaSite.php on line 1

 

Now, please forgive me for my stupidity, but i don't know what the problem is. Is it my testing server? I had a lot of trouble initially with the URL prefix which is:

 

http://www.mysite.org.uk/dynaSite/

 

I had to avoid using public_html bit for some reason. I couldn't get any other prefix to work but this.

 

Is it that first line of my php script? This is:

 

<?php require_once('Connections/con1.php'); ?>

 

Now con1.php is sitting on my server ok but i cannot view but can edit it, which seems strange.

 

I'm sure (hope) there is a simple solution to all this but its beyond me at the moment. Any help you can give would be much appreciated!

 

thanks,

 

M

Silly question, but is your site in your server root? ie. c:\program files\apache\apache group\htdocs? or just in something like C:\documents and settings\user1\my documents?

Its a remote server i'm working on, using the mysql and php preinstalled on the server. I haven't got php and mysql installed on my local machine

no it is not your server it is your code :)

 

In the file dynaSite.php you required a file (Connections/con1.php) on line 1, but the script cannot find the file.

/home/mcpalmer/public_html/dynaSite/Connections/con1.php

 

make sure that ur dreamweaver code has capital letters etc in the right places as ur remote server will be case sensitive

also, your server may not recognize capital letters, or your folder was converted to all lower case upon uploading it.
