thanks dani, i deleted it not renamed it as i have done in past. uninstalled and reinstalled. the error i have is this section:
8. Constant "Loading Database Schema "
This usually happens when you are using the remote server as the testing server. When the wizard pages load, they sometimes need to communicate with the MySQL server to return column names for the table you are working with. When Dreamweaver tries to access the database, it will try to create the following file on the web server at:
<URL Prefix>/_mmServerScripts/MMHTTPDB.php .
Where <URL Prefix> is the URL Prefix you set on the testing server tab of the site definition.
When using a remote testing server, Dreamweaver can sometimes lose the FTP connection, then it will hang on the "Loading Database Schema" dialog.
Using a Local Testing server instead of the remote server can help alleviate this problem.
Note: Your remote database server may have blacklisted your IP. Call your host, and see if they can whitelist your IP on your database server. When you use a remote server as your test server, you tend to connect very frequently with the remote server (far more frequently than you would in a live/production environment). This can trigger a block.
Which does not really help as it is a remote server.
