Dreamweaver CS5 and Power CMS Builder

Hey Jason

Have just bought PowerCMS builder and have installed it fine but when i go to set up a connection to the database all i get is 'an unidentified error has occurred'.

I have checked all the settings, usernames etc and have been in live chat for about 2 hours with my provider

My provider is able to successfully access the database on a Linux machine (not using dreamweaver)

Just wondering if you knew of any known issues that I may have missed?

Thanks

Jamie

the unidentified error on a database connection usually means that there is a problem with the testing server settings in the site definition.

double change the testing server settings and make sure the URL Prefix for the testing server is set properly.

Hi Jason

Right, forgive my ignorance.... but I didnt realise that, due to it being a database connection, I needed and FTP one as well..

I cant upload to my server from Dreamweaver as Dreamweaver does not support FTPS which my hosting provider uses so for FTP I have to use Filezilla

I guess this means that PowerCMS Builder wont work for me?

Again, apologies for my ignorance

you could install a local testing server for development so that you can connect to the local database, then change the connection to use the remote connection information and upload the files to use them on the remote server.

see the learning resources page for details on installing a local testing server:

ah right ... have got that installed but never used it

are you able to run multiple sites on the same testing server at the same time?

Yes, the way I do it is to set each Dreamweaver site up as a subdirectory of the htdocs folder which is the main site root of mamp.
