Dreamweaver - cannot edit my wordpress website

Dreamweaver - cannot edit my wordpress website


I´m on a windows machine using the latest DW 2018 build and xampp.
I want to edit my website which is already online, directly in Dreamweaver on my local computer. It is a wordpress webpage running on a PHP 7.0 hosting server.

In DW I created a site with an ftp remote connection to my website, as well a test server connected to the localhost, both connections were successfully established according to DW.
I have exported the database from the website and imported it in a new database in xampp, I can see it in the Webassist database panel, everything is fine.

However, when I try open a php site in DW, I can´t edit anything.
The error-code "Dynamically-related files could not be resolved because the site definition is not correct for this server." is popping up all the time.
In the design view I always get the error "Direct script access denied".

I don´t know what the issue could be, please help.
