Database Connection

I just upgraded from my version of PowerCMS 2 to the PowerCMS builder. The old version worked great, I uploaded it, created a db on go daddy and connected it, no problems. No I have PowerCMS Builder extension and I can't get it to work. I though I saw that I didn't have to have a local test server setup for this.

FAQ?
Do I need to use a local testing server to manage my CMS content?
No. If you configure PowerCMS Builder to connect to your remote database, you should be able to maintain your CMS content directly on your live database. In order to do this, you will need to ensure that your Remote Testing Server settings are properly configured in your site definitions and when you create your database connection, you reference your remote database.

I need some help and I see that I have 1 support ticket available on my account and I need to use it. I don't even care if I have to pay for rush service. I have a client waiting on me. I thought this would be just plug and play like the older version. Please lord help me.

I've attached all the popups that my current situation is generating.

the error means that the testing server settings in your site definition are not correct.

in the site definition, go to the testing server section, set the testing server section to use the same information as the remote server.

make sure to enter a valid web address for the URL Prefix as well.


the testing server does not need to be a local testing server, but it does need to be properly defined in Dreamweaver.

Power CMS Builder is an Extension that add the Power CMS Solution to your site.

It installs the Power CMS Solution files to your site, and allows you to use the WebAssist -> CMS access points to create new Content areas, or use the Power CMS Admin pages to create new content areas.

I got it to work. It just took me a while to find the install procedure. I was just thinking it was like the original PowerCMS and went the wrong direction. Works great and is much faster to implement once installed. Thanks again for the great extension.
