Can't make connection


I'm having trouble making the connection to the database. When I am in DW. I type in connection name, My SQL server as 'localhost', username and password.

When I try to select a database, it gives tells me that 'An unidentified error has occurred'.

I press OK, and it lets me know that there is an error 404. Here are some possible reasons..

1) There is no testing server running on the server machine.
2) The testing server specified for this site does not map to the ........... Verify that the URL prefix maps to the root of the site.

Can you tell me what the problem would be and how I can fix it? Or point me in the right direction.
