Default DC PHP tutorial

I started to watch the PHP tutorials on this site. Downloaded all software, made the configurations as said in the tuts.

At the end of lesson number 7 I was hoping to see the result of the script. But in stead of the result, I got the following:

URL: http://localhost/Test/users.php
Msg: Not Found
The requested URL /Test/users.php was not found on this server.

I never worked with server-technology on dreamweaver, but had an idea: I copied the Test-directory from local-root to the www-directory of Wamp. Then when I F12'ed the script, I got:

URL: http://localhost/Test/users.php
Msg: Warning: mysql_select_db(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in K:\wamp\www\Test\Connections\connection.php on line 10
Warning: mysql_fetch_array(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL result resource in K:\wamp\www\Test\users.php on line 7

Am I missing a connection from DW to the test server? Built both local and remote root-directories in DW. But they are not connected to 'localhost'?
As the scripts (connection and database) are exact copies (database named users through), I wouldn't think there is something wrong with the actual scripts.

Hope someone can set me on the right track.

Hi, I am getting exactly the same problem with the page not being found, even though the files section in Dreamweaver shows that the page exists under local, remote and test server.

I think that the problem may be that I didn't specify My Documents as the WWW directory when I setup WAMP5, but I cannot see where to change this now.
