I can help also if you need. I am very proficient using mysqli extension, but can do databridge also if needed. I gave up on the current version of dreamweavercc and rolled it back to a prior version, CS6 Worksgreat just like the old dreamweaver did. The dmxzone extension installer works fine but for webassist I use the one put out by projectseven, because dmxzone extension manager doesn't always install them.
But if you need help on the rebuild I would be willing to give you a hand.
