I am looking for a little help since I am new at this. I am using a PC running windows xp pro, Dreamweaver 8, and XAMPP 1.5.4a. I constucted a webpage that would be a "log in" page to allow certain viewers to an area of our site. I set up a test database with passwords and converted into a slq data file. I can run this page on my PC using XAMPP as the testing server. It works fine. I have FTPed my files to our server and placed them relatively in the same locations as on my PC. These files included a .PHP page with the login boxes, a connection file, and the database files.
When I log on to our site via the web, I can bring the log in page up and type in data, but after submitting, I receive a notice that says "No Database Selected". That notice is not something that I created it is coming from my server. Clearly, the log in request is not finding the database when this is run on the server. Yet the log in works while on my PC.
Is there something more than moving files to the server that I must do? or should the location of the database on the server be different than the location on my PC? Or are there more files that need to be transfered?
Any help would be welcome.
