Ray, thanks for the quick response.

I need to break my initial query into two parts. Here is the first.

I am starting a site from scatch using DW CS4 with no help from any of the Web Developer Suite wizards or extensions.

If I place all of the URSP files into a DW site and am testing it locally on my computer, the connection file in URSP is by default named "localhost.php".

I understand how to configure the "connection file" for my database.

The site is working "locally".

I desire to change the "database connection" from "localhost.php", to "connXYZ.php".

Here is what I am going to do (I think):

From DW CS4 I will:

1) delete the connection named localhost
2) delete the file named "localhost.php"
3) add a database connection name "connXYZ" and configure it with "localhost", "username", "password" (this should create the file "connXYZ.php"
4) "find" in all site files "localhost", and "replace" with "connXYZ"

Is this correct?

I think the "root url" in the globals file is "http://localhost/"sitename"". This would have to remain the same would it not. Are there any other instances in any of the URSP files that should not be replaced?

Thanks again for your help.
