Error 405


I'm finally taking the plunge and going over to PHP. Have managed to use Universal Mail ok on a page, but now i want to purchase the full PHP super suite - but have initial problem,.

Host has set up MySql dBase for me (and double0checked it works ok at their end), but when i put in the connection parameters i get the error

"HTP Error Code 405 Method not allowed" and i cannot establish a connection.

They have checked the connection is Ok with PHPAdmin so this looks like a set-up issue at my end. Without your help I cant get connected and I do want to buy the products. Is it possible to use one of my support tickets to iron out this issue?

thanks guys

the MySQL Server name does not look correct to me.

Most hosts will have limitations in place that will make it very difficult to create a connection to the database with in Dreamweaver.

It may be that the host does not even allow for an outside connection to the MySQL database.

because of this, we do not recommend setting up Dreamweaver to connect to the remote MySQL Server for development, we recommend setting up a local testing server for development purposes instead.

doing it this way, you use your local computer as a testing environment, then when you are ready to upload your site to go live, you will only need to change the database connection details to use the remote database.

See the learning resources section:

there are tutorial available there for setting up a local testing server, setting up the dreamweaver site and Managing your live database settings
