XAMPP and Dreamweaver MX problem

Postby nathitos » 27. February 2005 19:41

Hi all:

I have installed xampp on my computer and works ok (I am working with local host for testing). I am developing a web page with Dreamweaver MX. I have created a new database with MySQL, and when I try to bring the data base into Dreamweaver (into a php file) I do not know what to type into the MySQL server field. I have already tried with http://localhost, http://localhost/xampp, etc. :?:

The root of xampp is c:\xampp
The root of my web page is: c:\xampp\htdocs\hotel\

Can anybody help me?

Thanks and greetings from Spain

Hi again:

I have already tried with localhost, but it doesn´t work. A warning message appears saying:

"HTTP 404 file not found

Possible causes:
1) There is no test server working.

2) The specified test server for this site is not assigned to the URL http://localhost/_mmServerScripts/MMHTTPDB.php. Be sure that the URL prefix is assigned to the root of this site"

I know that the test server is working, and earlier I tried with a MySQL server that I can´t remember and it worked properly.

Thanks in advance

Ignacio

Make sure when entering the sql server host you only insert

localhost

inserting http://localhost will give you that error

if not try entering your IP address as a test although localhost should do the trick as Wiedmann stated

make sure you turn on mysql and apache before you point your browser to localhost

this might help you.
