Snapshots as requested
here is the 2 snapshots requested
attachment 10 is the testing server preview, the full directory that is cut off for both ends in "Database-eLearning Folder/"
attachment 11 is the whe I click on the "databases" palette and click on "+" to add a MySQL connection as per the tutorials instructions with "root" the password you can't see.
Incidentally I took Mikes link last night and went thru it all. It suggested I switch off web sharing and reset the MAMP ports to 3306 (MySQL) and 80 (Apache), so I then reset the DW testing server to go to localhost:80, but it didn't get me any further.
Sorry this is proving to be so difficult I appreciate your help but I think we are getting there... DG
