you smother

Hi neilo,

Thank you for trying to help.

I actually did end up reformatting my computer and started from step 1.
I think from multiple installs/uninstalls I had a problem that I couldn't locate.

I think though that my initial problem was with php since after reformatting I could not get the same version of php to work, but after switching to a different version it is working now. that I can get Dreamweaver to connect to mySQL data base, it isn't showing the tables. It has the connections, but when I add a table it isn't showing the table.

Also each time I expand the plus sign for the table in Dreamweaver to see if the tables are there, I get an Apache HTTP Server window that asks if I want to send more information about the problem? This message comes up each time I expand the plus sign for the table in the dreamweaver connection so I think something may be wrong in my httpd.conf file. I'm just not sure what yet.

If you have any ideas what could be causing this or need additional information let me know.

In the mean time, I'm going to see if there's already a solution for this out there somewhere.

Thank you again,
