View Full Version : MySQL and Dreamweaver

05-18-2005, 06:28 PM
Hello everybody!! I am as new as they get to dreamweaver, so bare with me lol.

I hope to be able to get some advice and help here. I have MySQL installed locally at the following location : C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Server 5.0

I have created a username, password, database, etc. Then created a table in my database.

What I am trying to do is reference or pull up the info from my table in Dreamweaver. I click on the "+" button to add database, then window titled "MySQL Connection" comes up with the following fields:

Connection name:
MySQL server:
User name:

Connection name can be anything i suppose, and I am entering "localhost" in mysql server field.

After entering the info you click "test" to test connection and keep getting the same error message...
1)there is no testing server running on the server machine
2)the testing server specified for this site does not map to the http://localhost/_mmServerScripts/MMHTTPDB.php ('http://localhost/_mmServerScripts/MMHTTPDB.php') URL

Sorry about the long first post, any help would be greatly appreciated.
