DA Problems

Hi Jason,

I am having no luck with DataAssist.


I can create the pages in DataAssist to update my database. Connections, pages all create fine (in Dreamweaver).
However seems my redirects or something are off. (spent a couple of days and a lot of rebuilds)

So if I view the insert page online that is fine - But after I hit insert button it goes to an empty page. Same with the Search page.

Also in one attempt (not sure what I did) I got the insert and search function working but the update page did the same thing - went to blank page when I pressed Update.

If on the Insert Page I look under Server Behaviors and Double Click Insert Record - It says "Connection Not Found" - But in the WA UI under "Define" it is there but selecting it does nothing.

I have tried uploading all files again and again but the only ones I have found that have to be uploaded manually are - "Connections" and have to click on the HTML editor, make it Basic and then upload the page again every time I create new Insert or Update pages. or nothing displays.

I have lots of these apps to build across three sites so I hope to figure out a better workflow.

All Extensions are up to date.

Another Question: Should I use Dynamic MySQLi Connection with DataAssist or just Dynamic MySQL Connection.
PHP version 5.4.24
MySQL version 5.5.40-36.1-log

I will include the Login info in the Reply Private section of the next entry.

Attach PHP MyAdmin of the DB

i checked the search page to the results page, the results page opens a blank page meaning a php error is occurring, but error reporting is turned of. i turned on error reporting and it shows this error:

Warning: mysql_select_db(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in /home5/northfl3/public_html/Admin-Blog/TBBlog_results.php on line 87

Warning: mysql_query(): supplied argument is not a valid MySQL-Link resource in /home5/northfl3/public_html/Admin-Blog/TBBlog_results.php on line 91

so i looked at the connection file being used, it is a MySQLi, connection, Data Bridge does not support MySQLi at this time, you need to use a standard MySQL connection with Data Bridge.

We are hoping to have an upgrade out first quarter of next year to add MySQLi support in Data Bridge.

on this one:

the problem was that the connection line came after the update code, i moved the connection line to be before the update to fix it.
