I have installed a local testing server already...XXAMP. With XXAMP, the connections are working fine; just as they should. However, when it comes to connecting with Yahoo...that is not possible (talked with Yahoo this afternoon). Yahoo states that it is not possible for me to establish connections with Yahoo's sql server through DW. They further stated that it is up to me to ensure the coding and scripting is done proper so that a connection is possible when files are uploaded to Yahoo's hosting server.
Going back to the testing server, are you suggesting that I get my connections up and running through the testing server first? What then?
