Connecting DreamWeaver with WampDeveloper Pro

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 WampDeveloper Pro's Websites Tab).

This website should already exist / have been created via WampDeveloper Pro.

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).
