    I installed Apache and php on my pc, but I am having trouble setting up a testing server in dreamweaver mx. I want to test my php files locally (obviously).

    My local root folder is on my desktop and my "remote info" is ftp access.

    Apache & php are installed under C:/Web/ and I am not sure how i should set up my Testing Server info for my site.

    If it matters, i plan to install mysql on my pc soon as well.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks in advance,

    Your webroot by default is the "htdocs" folder within C:\web\.

    To view the pages on your local PC browse to http://127.0.0.1 or http://localhost.

    You should use those values for the local server setup in Dreamweaver.

    does this mean I should keep the local copies of my site assets under the c:\Web\Apache\htdocs\ ?

    Yep. Either that or change the webroot to where your files currently are. The httpd.conf file allows you to do that IIRC.

    Then you can test PHP pages locally.

    The testing server is a good idea for testing it on another server. If you are hosting it on your computer anyway (even if it is for testing purposes), you should just keep your sites in htdocs anyway. Then you can just save and reload.

    This is what I do. I test everything on my computer then when it works I upload it to my host.

    Hi,
    I have a similar problem, desc:
    I installed XAMPP and later AppServ witch contains all Apache,PHP & Mysql
    every thing is OK I can use php and phpmyadmin to create database through localhost, but...

    when trying to connect mysql using Dreamweaver, an error saying
    1-There is no testing server running on the server machine
    2-The testing server specified for this site does not map to the "http://localhost/_mmServerScripts/MMHTTPDB.php url ...

    I have inserted all necessary information in "Local info" & "Testing Server" when I defined new site ...

    to mark that my server directory is c:\server , contains these directories:
    apache2
    mysql
    php
    www
    the last is DocumentRoot instead of htdocs.

    I hope there is a solution

    and thanks for listening.

    use www. don't know why your xampp is doing that, but I know some hosts (like netfirms) categorize their directories, with www being the regular directory.

    Will you post more explanation, please.

    Cause I'm not a pro in DreamWeaver.

    thanks for response.

    Hi pal,

    I solved my problem by doing this:

    note:I always access internet through network proxy server, just modify
    internet options >> Connections >> LAN Settings
    and check the option "Bypass proxy server for local addresses"

    and make my project's folder in localhost root -usualy www or htdocs - and assign "URL Prefix"
    (http://localhost/projectfolder/) -change "projectfolder" just as you have-

    Making sure you are running apache and mysql services first.

    thats it.


    hope it well help you.
