Dreamweaver PHP Setup Help Needed

Recommended Posts

hi anyone,

 

I am trying to use Dreamweaver for my testing needs.

I have XP, Apacher, mySQL installed.

The DocumentRoot for the Web Server is: c:/myTestSites/www/

 

So, I created one more folder:

c:/myTestSites/www/SiteOne/

where i put all the pages I am about to test.

 

Qustions:

in order to have it tested locally I have to set up a testing server on my machine, with setting in dreamweaver.

so there are two things:

1. Testing ServerFolder:

 

What folder should I put in there?

The DocumentRoot which is c:/myTestSites/www from httpd file?

or the folder where all my files are located?

c:/myTestSites/www/SiteOne ?

 

2. There is alse URL Prefix - the location of the site's root folder on the testing server?!?!?

Should I put here my root folder again:

c:/myTestSites/www ?

OR:

http://localhost ?

but http://localhost is the address of my machine - it is not my root folder!

 

I AM CONFUSED.

 

TESTING SERVER FOLDER.......LOCATION OF THE SITE'S ROOT FOLDER

 

 

 

PLEASe...anybody help me - my brains are boiling..

 

P.S. I don't even wanna mention Virtual Hosts..another pain, but will see.
