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 http://127.0.0.1/_mmServerScripts/MMHTTPDB.php 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
