by presetup, i mean that your database, and all tables AND fields you are planning to use with dreamweaver, must allready exist. You have to create them before you can map dreamweaver to them, seems obvious i know, but i work in tech support, and i'm used to trying to go over the silly things to.. After all how can you expect it to use a table and fields that don't exist. But i'm sure you've done this, just me being thourough.

Also, can you post or send me some screen shots of whats going on?? or maybee your code?? will have a look. I tried going to that link to macromedia you posted earlier, but i end up at a porn site????? lmao

Just as another thought while i'm still thinking about it...

When you set your connection up, in dreamweaver, you said you tried user@% ..... don't, it should only be your username it wants, the % bit is defined within mysql.

Another point too, define your system for me, how many machines, what's on what machine..... for example i have :

1 Redhat box with mysql, apache, php, samba as domain controler

2 Windows XP boxes as clients

All my php and html are ON the redhat box, i have nothing on my XP boxed except DW and Games...

Sorry to be calling the obvious, but in my experiences with linux, its nearly allways the obious.

They all work together, but the "unidentified error" comes from setup and configuration problems.


1) In Dreamweaver, go to Sites/Manage Sites/Advanced, in “Testing Server,” be sure to configure URL prefix: http://localhost/ .... See Check the URL Prefix in the Site Definition at (Note that the URL prefix does not always need to point to http://localhost/. Right now, we are just using localhost as the troubleshooting web site. The important thing is for “URL prefix” to point to the document root address of whichever testing web site you are connecting to.)

2) Make sure that the MySql extension is activated in php.ini. Take the ; off the left side of the line in order to activate: extension=php_mysql.dll

3) Make sure that extension_dir = “c:\php\ext” is activated in php.ini, and that it points to the correct directory where php_mysql.dll is located.
For PHP5: extension_dir = “c:\php\ext”
For PHP4: extension_dir = “c:\php" Use this if you followed PHP4 installation instructions and copied all the extensions from c:\php\extensions to c:\php.

4) Make sure that PHP is working in Apache server. Does browsing to your http://localhost/phpinfo.php page display PHP graphics and data?


The Dreamweaver Tutorial has you create PHP code on two pages: comments-view.php and comments-add.php. The problem is that after you complete the tutorial instructions, both pages display as blank pages in your Internet browser.
If you’re working on those pages in Dreamweaver, when you click on “Live Data View” you get the following error code:

The testing server did not execute any of the scripts in your document. Possible explanations include:
1) The testing server is not running.
2) The testing server ignores files with the ".php" file extension.
3) Your document does not contain any scripts.

This is caused by a parsing problem in PHP, i.e the PHP code hangs up and your Apache server gives you a blank page. The solution is to make a change in the php.ini file. Change short_open_tag = on to make it read: short_open_tag = off

Good luck. I hope this helps.
