I seem to have exactly the same problem. I use Windows XP Professional. I have down loaded xampp-win32-1.4.13-installer.exe done checks and all seems fine.
I am using Dreamweaver MX PHP Web Development -- I had been using Beginning Dreamweaver MX 2004 which was much easier -- no assumptions of knowledge.
Some of the information I need makes me feel a little embarrassed at my lack of knowledge.
Pg: 26 Save as <?php phpinfo( ) ; ?> and upload to your web server. HOW
In case u have the book pg 71
The MYSQL server value for this dialog should be the hostname or IP Address of your MYSQL Server. If your web server is at www.mysite.org
, then you would enter www.mysite.org
, in the MYSQL server test box.
The username and password information represent the authentication information for your MYSQL Server, not your web server. This is often the most common mistake to make when creating a connection.
I do not know where to find the address for the MYSQL Server.
Love some direction.
Also the official forum for this book is inactive, receives no support unlike other Wrox books.
Do you know of a book or a tutorial which might be of use to me. After a weekend of extremely slow progress I am now even thinking of paying for a tutorial if necessary. I think the literal translation/meaning in Greek or Latin for Education is to be lead through. I could do with some of that right now. One problem just a line on the page can take me days.
