local vs ftp
I had set the testing server to Local/Network but, obviously, I don't have MySQL installed locally. D'oh!
I assume, in order for me to be able to test my sites offline, like I do with my Classic ASP websites, I need to install PHP locally? MySQL?
Even with my Classic ASP websites though, I didn't need to have MSSQL server installed locally as I could just connect direct to that data source which I always found really useful.
Once I changed the testing server to FTP, and entered the FTP details, it all worked.
Thank you Jason.
