DreamWeaver

Recommended Posts

Does anyone here use DreamWeaver? I'm currently running DreamWeaver MX 2004, and I'm trying to set up the MySQL database to run through it, but I keep getting some ridiculous error saying that I may not have a test server running? If anyone could explain to me how to use this feature, I would appreciate it greatly.

I used Dreamweaver for a while for coding, but never did anything with the database through it. I'd stick with coding PHP in it and just use phpMyAdmin to manage your MySQL server.

In order to test dynamic pages (PHP, ASP, etc.) with Dreamweaver you need to have the testing server set up. Your testing server can (and probably should be) on your local machine. Dreamweaver treats this the as it would the remote server files. So when you set it up, just think of your local machine as your web server and select the appropiate locations of your local files. - I hope that made sense.

I use Dreamweaver extensively and would agree with the last person that it easier to use phpMyAdmin to hanlde your db. I don't know if the same is true for the Windows version of DW, but on OS X version, you have to have the testing server set up to view dynamic pages in your brower.
