Adding Content Areas to CMS

Adding Content Areas to CMS

I'm trying to add a content area to PowerCMS from an existing page (which is based on a template) but when I complete the dialog box, (from WebAssist > CMS > Add Content to PowerCMS), the extension complains that it can't write using the existing connection.

The connection works perfectly for all other operations and the MySQL user has all privileges.

Is it because the page is based on a template and the extension can't add the code to the page it needs to?

HELP!

TIA
Andrew

Have just detached page from template with the same result, so it's not that! :(

Also added another connection with a different database and that hasn't worked either

in your Dreamweaver site settings, how is the connection to the testing server defined?

the most common cause of this error is the testing server settings.

In the testing server settings, are you connecting to a local testing server or a remote server through FTP?

make sure that the Web URL and Root Directory settings are set properly.

The web URL should be a full URL to the site on your testing server.

the Root Directory needs to be the path to the directory on the server that matches the Web URL. This settings is especially important if you are connecting to a remote server using FTP. When you log into some FTP Servers, you may be outside of the web root, if this is the case on your server, you need to specify the web root directory.

Hi Jason,

The testing server is the live server, connecting through FTP, the web URL is www.thefeathersshowbar.co.uk and the default directory is public_html, as I can't write to the root.

Seems weird because I also have PowerGallery running on this site with no problems.

Kind Regards

Andrew

looks like this might be a permissions problem on the _mmServerScripts/ folder.


Power CMS will try to upload a script to this folder to create the CMS tables in your database

it looks like this folder is not allowing read permsions to execute the script.


using File Zilla, try accessing the FTP server to change the permissions of that folder.

Error Logs Attached

Hi Jason,

Have attached the error log from the _mmServerScripts directory and checked permissions - user has full read, write, execute access and everybody else can read and execute - equates to 0755 in Unix.

Proper stumped now!

that error log indicates a problem in the connection file with the database password.

Thanks Jason! I've tested the connection within the define dialog and it connects perfectly. I can see the tables and everything using the Databases panel.
