Help with SecurityAssist Wizard

I have difficulty using SA. I created a database and two tables with form elements. I am using Dreamweaver CS4. Using step 1 of 6 of the SA(specify database option and page choice), I enter the necessary information to test database connection and I received the following Error information:

HTTP Error code 404 File not found. Here are some of the possible reasons for the problem

1) There is no testing server running on the server machine
2) The testing server specified for this site does not map to the
MMHTTPDB.php URL. Verify that the URL Prefix maps to the root of the site.

I have tried it several times and the same error message appears. Is there something that I am doing wrong. I will appreciate if someone can help me.
Thanks in advance

This error points to a problem in the Dreamweaver site Definition Testing Server settings.

Going by the error, the URL Prefix on the testing server tab is set to:

This will only work if Access is set to FTP and an FTP connection can be made.

when you test a database connection, it tries to connect to the testing server and create:

Then browse to that file.

My guess is that on the testing server tab, you set Access to Local Network and are using a local path such as c:\inetpub\wwwroot\mySecurityAssistSite

in which case the URL Prefix would need to be:

If you want to use the remote server for testing, you need to use the FTP Access method and make sure that an FTP connection is made before testing the database.
