Unable to edit your database....

Unable to edit your database....

I've read on a previous post that a dot release fix for this is soon to be released.

Can you give me an indication of when this might be please?

I do have a support ticket open from when I tested the extension (after spending an awful lot of money buying Super Suite!) but I'm hanging on until I've upgraded to CS5 from CS4... which will be about a week away.

I have three sites on the go which will require installation of CMS using this extension - for separate clients and all on different shared servers. I'm very very worried about the amount of negative posts arising from this issue.

in almost all of the cases we investigated of this issue occurring, the cause of problem came down to the site definition.

specifically the settings for the testing server.

In almost every case, the problem was in using the remote FTP Server as the testing server, and not setting the host directory section correctly. On some servers, the remote directory can be left blank. On other servers, the remote directory needs to point to the public_html/ folder, the root folder of your web site.

to determine if the remote directory needs to be set, use an FTP tool like FileZilla to connect to your sites ftp server.

If you see a folder named public_html or htdocs at the root of the server, then that needs to be entered as the Remote Directory in your site definition. IF you see the websites index.php file and other web files at the root, the Remote Directory setting can be left blank.

In a lot of cases you will get this error if you don't have your Site Definition set up correctly and specifically it you don't have your Testing Server Set up to point to the correct folder on your testing Server.

also, it seems that deleting the DW cache file or recreating the Site help to fix the issue.

If you are still getting the error, you can download the attachment in the following thread which will allow the Wizard to continue after you click OK to generate the required pages:
