Setting up a new database connection in Dreamweaver

Hey Neilo,

Well, I took your suggestion using Xampp IIS7 was giving me some grief so rathther than try and figure it out, I just formatted the computer again and tried Xampp and so far it's connecting and Tables are visible, so I'm very happy with that.

Let me ask you this though. I really don't like the phpMyAdmin interface of working with the database. Now after all the grief I've went through, I'd be willing to settle with it if it's my only option, but is it possible for me to install MySQL Workbench or even MySQL GUI Tools on top of the Xampp installation that I have now, or would that put me back where I was before with not being able to connect?

If it is possible, is there a right or wrong way to install Workbench or GUI Tools after the Xampp installation? I think what I did before was I had Xampp installed. Didn't like the phpmyadmin interface so I deleted the MySQL folder that Xampp created and then installed Workbench manually. Everything communicated together nicely except Dreamweaver.

I am happy with what I've got right now though, so thank you for the suggestion to just use Xampp. At least now I have a stepping stone that I can always go back to.

Best Regards,
