My client's site is down and is a mess. Hackers got into the hosting service and apparently, for just kicks, they trashed his site so it is unusable. I've rebuilt his site, but every time I tried to use eCart in crashed Dreamweaver. I followed your suggestions about deleting cache files but it still crashed. So I decided to uninstall my old version of Dreamweaver 3, reinstall it from the original DVD's and then install the latest version of eCart. Start fresh. However the newest version of eCart is not compatible with the old DW3. So I subscribed to Adobe's cloud version and installed the cloud version of eCart. So far so good.
Here's the problem:
I have a complete version of the website on the hosting server which runs fine until I get to checkout when it sends me to PayPal's developer website. I know I can add PayPal functionality with the cloud version of eCart, so I downloaded the entire site from the host server to my hard drive so I can use eCart to set up PayPal. However, using my local Testing Server, I can't even access "store.php" because I get the error message that there is an error on line 9 of the connections file that has the user and password info. What I don't understand is why this same file works on the host server (accessed directly through Firefox) but can't run on my localhost testing server. What's up?
