Is there a workaround?

Is there a workaround?

I have been trying to use the PowerCMS within Design Extender.

When I use the Add Content the application within Dreamweaver I am told that some files (admin_cms?) must be uploaded first. No need to include dependent files. Fine.

However, no connection is available because my host (NetFirms) refuses to allow an external connection to Dreamweaver, I must go to PHPMyAdmin myself.

If I cannot create this step how can I get the files and connection information to the site?

The connection information is correct it just won't allow the WebAssist software to inject.

I have asked them for more information but if you have anything which could help bypass this requirement for uploading that would be great.

Thanks!

Dreamweaver uses a php file that it uploads to the server to perform the communication with the MySQL server, so there should not be an issue with dreamweaver communicating with the database.

Make sure you have the site definition in Dreamweaver set up to use an FTP connection to the host for the testing server settings, using the remote server as the testing server should allow you to create the database connection to the remote mySQL server.

Here is the message from my hosting support

"We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you. Unfortunately, we do not support remote connections for accessing the database on our platform. You can use phpMyAdmin tool or any connection string to access the database."

So I took off my localhost testing server and just checked off both boxes. That worked. Not sure what the difference is .. but it worked. Files uploaded and I added content to the page that was included in the upload without issue.

Now I have another problem .. not sure if it is linked...
- then I opened another page and tried to upload the snippet
- CRASH
- Dreamweaver/WebAssist wants to upload (again) the database connection. Huh? It's already up there and working fine from the looks of it.

Did I miss a step? How do I now indicate that the connection file is there? It crashes consistently now.

Help? Thanks.

it shouldn't keep trying to upload the connection, try Deleting the Dreamweaver Cache file from the users configuration folder:
common_installation_issues.php

I was hoping you wouldn't say that. Tried that one already. No impact.
