Connecting DreamWeaver with Wamp-Developer

How-to set up a connection with DreamWeaver to the www.example.com website, and also to a database.

Dreamweaver Website Definition/Connection

Local Info:

  • Site Name: My Example Website
  • Local Root Folder: C:\WampDeveloper\Websites\www.example.com\webroot\
  • HTTP address: http://www.example.com/

Remote Info:

  • Access: none

Testing Server:

  • Server model: PHP / MySQL
  • Access: Local/Network
  • Testing server folder: C:\WampDeveloper\Websites\www.example.com\webroot\

Other:

  • Edit and test locally only
  • No copy to remote server

Notes

The folder path is the DocumentRoot (what we call 'webroot') folder of the website and it might be different on your system (check Wamp-Developer's Websites Tab).

This website should already exist / have been created via Wamp-Developer.

DreamWeaver Database Connection

To connect DreamWeaver to MySQL, you would do so directly via MySQL using a specific database that you create...

1. Via phpMyAdmin create a new database, and for it a database user and password, with all permissions granted on that specific database.

2. Example settings for the MySQL Connection dialog box in Dreamweaver...

  • Connection Name: My Example Database
  • MySQL Server: localhost
  • User Name: the database user name
  • Password: the database user password
  • Database: the database name

Notes

Always use 'localhost' when specifying a database server/host. 'localhost' here means: the local MySQL server (same system).
