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.

Hi,

Your Document root c:/myTestSites/www/
is defined as http://localhost/

Your testing server folder is c:/myTestSites/www/SiteOne/

and your URL prefix will be http://localhost/SiteOne/
