PHP pages fail to preview in Dreamweaver MX
Posted 11 November 2004 - 06:18 PM
I am trying to develop a dynamic site hosted locally on my Mac running OS 10.3.3 I have enabled PHP Version 4.3.2 and Apache 1.3.29. and both seem to be running from what i can tell. Apache shows a default page at http://127.0.0.1 and PHP shows the same at http://127.0.0.1/~user/phpinfo.php
I'm using Dreamweaver MX 6.1 with MySQL. I am able to connect to the database without any problem.
However, when I try to preview one of the site's pages in IE or Safari I get "the request URL /TMPacifg6yv5.php was not found on this server"
What could be causing this??? Is PHP not enabled properly?

What is going on with this? Is this related?

First off, if you are on Mac OS X ( I assume you are), make sure you have installed the PHP add-on from php.net.
Next, this is going to sound dumb, but, TURN APACHE ON...Go to apple, system prefs, sharing, turn ON personal file sharing....Just for kicks, go to http://127.0.0.1/~username. If you don't have anything showing up or an error, something is wrong. Make sure apache is turned on. You can see by taking out the username portion of 127.0.0.1, and if it shows a setup-completion page you are in the go.
Now, as far as previewing in Dreamweaver, that works sometimes, and not. The easiest way I do it is by going to http://127.0.0.1/~us...ename/index.php
Let me know if this works. It takes a little extra effort alt-tabbing, but at least you don't have to waste the extra 2 seconds uploading
