I'm new to Dreaweaver & MySQL.
I'm using the Tutorial that ends on this page:
which is the 'Connect to the Database' step.
When I click the Test button to test the db connection,
I get a 404 error that says there is either
"no testing server running on the server machine"
"The testing server specified for this site does not map to the URL. Verify that the URL Prefix maps to the root of the site."
My MAMP window shows:
A green light for Apache Server & the MySQL Server.
Apache Port set to 80 & the MySQL Port to 3306.
Apache Document Root = /Applications/MAMP/htdocs
I should mention that on a previous page, when i received the instruction to put this:
. . . I was not able to get to phpMyAdmin.
I have to put this:
to get to that page.
I wonder if that is realted to the problem I am having testing the db connection.
I would appreciate any help I can get.

if you drop an info file into your root do you get a returned page?

do you know how to do this?

Look at the video tutorial in the homepage of this forum. Its very fast but informational. I watched it 7 times over and over until I got it and I was able to install wamp. My only problem is now I have to learn database.
