Hi!

I'm currently designing a site using a Dreamweaver CSS template. I wanted to create a subsite where I have php membership sign up forms for customers who wish to open web hosting accounts. They are already coded. I wanted to know what would be the right way to go about inserting these pages into my current site. I want to make sure I don't run into any problems in the future.

BTW, I already have a subdomain setup for hosting.

I'd appreciate any feedback anyone can give me.

you need a Web Server if you intend to run PHP on your local machine

WAMPSERVER (http://www.wampserver.com/en/)is a popular choice

Once installed you would run your site from the specified root of the server (www)

If the PHP script has database integration then you will have to build this in your local MYSQL instance

If you don't want to preview them. You can just copy the pages into your local root folder. Dreamweaver will display/edit (and even preview) them but it won't process the php so WYS may not be WYG (like it ever is).
