View Full Version : Database Connection

07-24-2009, 03:13 AM
I am new to this, please forgive me if I am elementary.

I am trying to establish a connection to a MySQL database I created on my localhost. I can connect via phpMyAdmin. But when I try to set the connection via Dreamweaver I get a 404 error and possible reasons:

1.There is no testing server running on the server machine. (There is.)

2. 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.

I have a feeling it's the second reason, but I don't quite understand it. Can anyone simplify this for me?

sounds like your site definition
make sure testing server and remote lists as http://localhost/your site folder ( in your localserver, www folder)
and that you have selected local network as option
