Unidentified Error when connecting through dreamweaver

Unidentified Error when connecting through dreamweaver

I keep getting an unidentified error when trying to connect to my database through Dreamweaver in the Databases>MySQL Connections tab. I've been able to update my site through dreamweaver for the last several months and now it's giving me this error. I deleted the connection and re-established it and also deleted the cache. I called GoDaddy and they said nothing is wrong with the database connection or anything like that. Any idea what's going on?

This error can occur occasionally in DW. It is probably the worst error that I have ever gotten in DW because it says absolutely nothing about what the problem is.

You may want to try looking for the _mmServerScripts folder in the and delete it while DW is closed. This folder holds info about your site and the connection info. Also, there is a choice to clear the site cache at Sites > Advanced > Recreate Site Cache.
