View Full Version : trouble getting site to work live

05-28-2007, 09:03 PM
I have created a site in dreamweaver that uses a book online facility, everything works fine locally, I have transfered the localfiles through dreamweaver to my server but now the book online facility wont work, neither will the register or login facility.

I also can't connect to my databases even though the connection is successfull. It just says under tables:none.
I have produced the database through my host company using phpadmin.

have you created the tables?

05-28-2007, 10:05 PM
the tables are created and I can view them in phpadmin, but when i connect through dreamweaver it doesn't show them.

I create a new database, type in my details, the only thing I can think of that might be the problem is the mysql server, I type in the ip address, I have a username and password which I also type in but it still won't work.

try using EMS MYSQL LITE

at the bottom of this page...


i think it could be your PHPadmin

I have just tried connecting again and got this message which i didn't before.

The testing server specified for this site does not map to the http://ftp website.co.uk/_mmServerScripts/MMHTTPDB.php URL. Verify that the url prefix maps to the root of the site.

you shouldnt really use dreamweaver to connect to the live machine

use an ftp client instead

try EMS like i advised as well

I use cute ftp, but my online booking wasn't working so I went to dreamweaver to try and sort the problem.

i thnk its your PHPadmin

please try EMS

and go back to using your FTP client

I must be something wrong here, I have the EMS SQL manager running, I create a new database, when I type in my connection properties it says it can't connect, I type in everything correctly, what is going wrong?

what is the error

05-29-2007, 11:23 AM
when trying to connect it comes up with access denied for user. thats when I use my ip address for the mysql server, when I type in my ftp address it says can't connect to the Mysql server.

get in touch with your host and ask them what you need to set this up

send them the fields and they should help you better

will do that, thankyou.

this might be a stupid question, but could the problem be that my copy of dreamweaver is an illegal copy?

05-29-2007, 07:09 PM

this might be a stupid question, but could the problem be that my copy of dreamweaver is an illegal copy? If you have an illegal copy of DW, then that is the least of your problems. Thread closed.
