Hey Guys and Gals

i think what you mean is a local server on your computer which in DW terms will be the remote site.
yahoogle WAMP, or easy php or xampp . they are self installing
they are self installing servers with php mysal and apacheservers with php and mysql
If you're happy and you know it shake your meds!

I use WAMP which you can get for free here.

If you need help with this then try looking at DavidJ's video tutorials here on this site. He has a beginners guide to PHP which includes how to set up all you need to get started including WAMP.

Check the vids out here.

Good luck.

Regards, Paul

Actually you can set up a Testing Server locally (using WAMP or whatever) and also set up a remote site (the actual server where your site is hosted).
If my answer helped, check out DWcourse.com for Dreamweaver tips and tutorials.
