"An unidentified error has occurred" when attempting to connect db using Dynamic MySqli

OK, so in case anyone stumbles upon this thread with similar issues, I didn't necessarily find a solution, but I did successfully find the cause and a workaround!

In the DNS/Records section of Cloudflare, when the CNAME www record is set to proxied it prevented WebAssist MySQLi from connecting via the Dynamic MySQLi Connection wizard on Dreamweaver. By changing this setting to DNS only, after a few minutes and restarting DW, it connected fine! It is advisable to keep the setting to Proxied for the Caching/ CDN performance benefits of CF, but it's easy enough to toggle this setting from Proxied to DNS only when needed for WebAssist during development stages.

Alternatively, simply activate Development Mode in CF! Note: Pausing Cloudflare doesn't work.
