My database won't connect to my testing server!?

Go to solution Solved by lowheartrate,

Recommended Posts

I've run into a few problems as I was following this guys tutorial to setup a registration, log-in, etc. into my website.

 - for references here is the tutorial that I was going through and the problem that I have encountered has occurred during the process at: http://youtu.be/740kEwoRPKk?t=15m20s


As you can see in the 3rd image attached each one of my .php documents also have a notification bar on the top of the coding which entitles, "Dynamically-related files could not be resolved because the site definition is not correct for the server.   Retry | Setup"


I have my php files setup exactly as he has it only thing different then his is that I had to change my localhost to localhost:8080 due to a bump in the road that happened due to the fact that I have Skype on my computer which encounters a problem with the testing-server service I am using which is PhPMyAdmin


The error that I am getting when I try to connect my database to my testing server is in the image attached. Please reply to this post as soon as possible so I can get this problem resolved asap!


Take note that I am working on everything from Dreamweaver CC!!


Also I have tried several variables for setting up the database 'MySQL server:' such as 'localhost' , 'localhost:8080' , 'localhost8080' , 'localhost' , etc. 


If you have any further questions you can reply to me on here or you can add me on skype as well!

My skype name is:    lowheartrate



Thank you to all in advance!!

That is some form of dreamweaver reported error.


God knows.


I am un-sure what you mean. Are you saying that it is an error because the form of dreamweaver application I have!? I am running Dreamweaver CC right now. Should I downgrade from CC to CS6 or what? I need to know what I need to do to come to a solution for the problem :l

@lowheartrate Port 8080 is for your http server. In the video tutorial you linked to @2:17 for Web url you need to type in http://localhost:8080/registration_tutorial  and @15:25 you type just localhost for the MySQL Server not localhost:8080.


MySQL uses port 3306 by default.


Alright, thanks ill test it out once i get home this evening :)

I have come to the solution. If anyone encounters this problem it was due to a bug in Dreamweaver CC, The best solving process for this is to downgrade to DW CS5.5 and re do the process. Contact me if you have any further questions. Thank you to those who have helped!
