dw not connecting verify url prefix

Recommended Posts

im trying to add a database (with dreamweaver mx and sql and phpmyadmin) to my website and i've made it all the way to "creating a connection" in dreamweaver but it wont let me connect. it says i need to verify my url prefix, but i dont know what to put there i've tried everything. and i know the files are there. the error says i need to verify my url prefix so it maps to the root of the site. please help.

its local, my sql server is localhost. im pretty positive everything is right but when i hit test it checks stuff and then has error 404:there is no test server on this machine or the testing server for this site does not map to the [a href=\"http://www.mysite.com/folder/file.php\" target=\"_blank\"]http://www.mysite.com/folder/file.php[/a] url. verify the url prefix maps to the root of the site. and in testing server when i hit test it says it successfully made a connection. and sometimes when i change things around it just says "an unknown error has occured" or something. and when it looks like its gonna do something, norton worm protection pops us and says its blocking an intrusion and everytime it has a different named trojan and the files it shows are from dreamweaver. could that be the problem?

really...you don't need a testing server

a testing server is for when you are publishing to a remote server
you create a testing server that is....hopefully...identical in it's settings....so you know [b]before[/b] you publish it if it will work

but since you're doing it on localhost
you just need to tell it where you're local files are
and just...forget about the testing server or cloaking server or anything else besides your local files.
