Dreamweaver and Apache, PHP and MySQL


I'm planning to develop a website that will be running on a RedHat box that has Apache, PHP and MySQL installed.

I'm planning to develop that website on Macromedia Dreamweaver MX on a Windows XP platform, but I would like to test the code (cfr.PHP parts of the website) on the RedHat box. In the past, I always used FTP to manually put my files from the XP box onto the Redhat box, but this isn't very flexible.

I have read information about using the remote site in Dreaweaver, but that does not seem to work (maybe because I'm trying to go from Windows to Linux box). I have also read that I should configure an SSH tunnel from the Windows XP to my redhat box.

Can someone give me a clarification. I probably can find info enough, but I don't know what exactly to look for on the web...Is it 'remote site' or is it 'SSH tunnel for Macromedia' or is sth else...

Thanks in advance for putting my head in the right direction.

The remote server thing in Dreamweaver is basically FTP, but nicely placed in the tool panel so that files can be easily uploaded.
I use dreamweaver at work and there I have a RedHat server and I have configured the remote site bit in dreamweaver to FTP files to the server.

Hope that helps.

you can just installed all those services, Apache, php, mysql in your xp machine and test them locally. I do that at work before posting to the actual server. Read up on it at their websites.

Easier way is to install a pre-configured test setup, like apache2triad. These are setup for you. You just install and change a few values in the conf files if you are going to use it as a 'live' server.
Head over to and look in the php section for a subsection called server and software I think. They have loads of pre-configured packages.

PS. I can recommend apache2triad personally, get it from
