MySQL connection getting 'An Unidentified error has occurred.'

MySQL connection getting 'An Unidentified error has occurred.'

Using Dreamweaver CS4, and inserting SecurityAssist 1.x into a php page from a template, I was asked to set up my Connections name, MySQL server, User name & password and Database in the program's MySQL connection wizard. I did so and my host, Bluehost.com verified that everything needed is in my account there. I can also access the account from other Dreamweaver functions so there's no connection error with Dreamweaver. however, when testing the MySQL connection through SecurityAssist, I get 'An Unidentified Error Has Occured.' I have tried the MySQL server entry as local, remote and the IP address but get the same message every time. Why won't this program connect?

Most likely there is an issue with the Testing Server Settings in the Dreamweaver Site Definition.

See the "Defining a Dynamic Site in Dreamweaver" tutorial on the learning resources page:

Can you give me any guidance other than go here? Like what string or subject I should be reading? I've done all this already and googled it galore.

the problem is in the Testing Server settings of the site definition.

the "Defining a Dynamic Site in Dreamweaver" tutorial on the learning resources page will help you with configuring the testing server settings of your site definition.

If it is not working for you, please provide details on how you have the testing server section of the site definition, with that information I may be able to tell you what is wrong.

In the Dreamweaver site's definitions:

LOCAL INFO:
Local root folder goes to /Applications/MAMP/htdocs/(name of my folder)
HTTP address: petespolls/

REMOTE INFO:
Access: FTP
FTP host: (my ip address)
Host directory: public_html/petespolls/

TESTING SERVER:
Server Model: PHP My SQL
Access: FTP
FTP host: (my ip address)
Host Directory: public_html/petespolls/

and in the testing server definition, what is the URL Prefix set to?

it should be set to:
petespolls/

It's that, exactly as you wrote it.

And after an hour with Bluehost.com, everything on their end and what I've set up should work.

It is often difficult to get Dreamweaver working when using the remote server for a testing, there are many factors that could be causing the issue.

for this reason, we suggest using a local testing server for development.

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