Database settings do not load

Database settings do not load

Any activity requiring a connection to a database doesn't load my database settings.
An example being:
Select Security Assist / Create Security Pages.
In Databsse Settings I select Define.
I select my database.
I select Edit.
I select Test - "Connection was made successfully returned."
I select OK.
I select Done
Result: The database Settings tab is not populated.

The database connection is valid and works with all other Dream Weaver functionality
I am using DW CS6
I have uninstalled and reinstalled all Web Assist extensions and DW.
I have deleted the mac cache file-Still not working.
This seems to be a Web Assist software bug preventing me from using this expensive software.

When creating the Database connection, make sure you are using a standard MySQL connection and not a MySQLi connection, Data Bridge has not been upgraded to be compatible with mySQLi connections yet, we are currently working on that project.

After creating the MySQL connection, you will need to select it from the connection list.

Security Assist without Mysqli is vulnerable

Hi Jason,

Thanks for your response. Unfortunately that will not work for us as we require MYSQLi with all DB connections.
Can you confirm when you guys will have this upgraded? Without MYSQLi support theData Bridge plugin is really quite redundant.
I think you guys should start with Security Assist as without MySQLI this make all logins and registrations open to vulnerabilities.
I procured the MySQLi upgrade assuming you had addressed this issue across your plugins. I feel somewhat cheated. : (

We are working on upgrading all extensions to be compatible with MySQLi, we recently updated eCart and are working on Design Extender and Data Bridge. I Don not have a time frame for when the Data Bridge upgrade will be available though.

The MySQLi extension is the first step needed for the upgrade, just as the original MySQL functionality was built on the ground work of the built in dreamweaver behaviors, we needed to recreate that ground work with the MySQLi extensions before starting to work on the other extensions.

We will release the upgrades to the other extensions as quickly as possible.
