View Full Version : Dreamweaver database connection on Linux

10-20-2009, 10:14 PM
I am having the error mentioned here: http://www.dreamweaverclub.com/forum/showthread.php?t=28190

The setup I am using is this:
(Windows XP) (Suse)

And I am trying to use the "Select" button to choose my database.

The reason that I cannot use the solution mentioned on http://www.dreamweaverclub.com/forum/showthread.php?t=28190 is that I am trying to work off of a remote machine (XP) and connect to the backend on the Suse server.

I have been able to connect and execute remote queries with Python using the following line:

db = MySQLdb.connect(host="bigbird.xxxx.yyyy.zzz", user="root", passwd="secret")

But I always get the same error when using Dreamweaver.

did you try to connect using the IP of the remote server?

Just tried it. Same result:

Access denied. The file may not exist, or
there could be a permission problem.
Make sure you have proper authorization on the server and the server is properly configured.

P.S. why would DNS not work?

I am not concerned about the security implications at this time.

I am trying to get Dreamweaver to connect to the remote server to build a website. Let me see if I have this model worked out correctly:

1. Dreamweaver runs on XP but not on my Linux server
2. MySQL is running on my Linux server
3. I connect from Dreamweaver to the remote server and build a website with reference to the MySQL schema on the remote server
4. I export the site to the remote side, and presto! everything works because I've been building with respect to the database on the remote side.

Is that right?
