Testing server issues ... HTTP error code 404 File not found. Here are some possible reasons for the problem:

Hi, I am really hoping someone can throw a few more ideas at me as to why the testing server keeps coming up with the following error.

HTTP Error Code 404 File Not Found. Here are some possible reasons for the problem:

1)There is no testing server running on the server machine.

2)The testing server specified for this site does not map to the http://localhost/testsite/_,mmServerScripts/MMHTTPDB.php URL.Verify that the URL Prefix maps to the root of the site.

This is a WAMP new install, with APCHE and MySQL (Phpmyadmin).
I am running the latest version of DMX Zone with Enable Server Behaviours add in and the DMXZone server Connect app.

From a web browser like Chrome the site is recognizing the local host. https://support.localhost/ and you can log in and the dynamic site works fine.
And yes I can log into PHPmyadmin in the same manner http://localhost/phpMyAdmin/sql.php

But from within Dreamweaver CC it will not recognize the database connection and no tables are recognized. When you test the connection the attached picture is what you see with the error message above.

The MMHTTPDB.php file is in the root of the site and mysql.php is in a folder called _mmServerScripts

My IT department is out of ideas, we have tested if the server is running , permissions, firewall interference. He seems to feel that Dreamweaver CC is running it's own server and in turn using an alternative port.

If anyone has any ideas, places to point me, please do. I could really use the help.
