ok, here the scenario - 2 boxes, 1 running Linux (FC4) and 1 running Windows XP. The intention was to have the linux box serving everything to the windows box, to let me use dreamweaver.
Xampp is running perfectly on the linux box, but so far I haven't managed to connect to MySQL using Dreamweaver.
SO, how about an idiot's guide for someone who is totally new to doing this. Thanks in advance.
