MySQLi Server Behaviors Extension - setup database connection failed

I have Dreamweaver cc2014 and successfully activated my new MySQLi Server Behaviors Extension and completed the popup WebAssist site, page selection and test server. I can not click on the +/- symbol in the database window to add a connection. I do not see Database listed under Window in the menu bar. I have a PHP page loaded and a sample database with one table created to connect to using the extension. I am using MySQL Workbench to setup the test dB and table. Can't proceed to use the extension....have read every tutorial and searched online to find a solution. What are the next steps?

Did you install the Deprecated Server Behaviors panel? That needs to be installed as well in CC 2014.

You would also have to satisfy the requirements that should be listed in the Server Behaviors panel. That includes setting up a web site in dreamweaver with a testing server defined. Open the Server Behaviors panel and make sure that the steps are all checked.

Instruction to find Server Behaviors Extension provided by Adobe and instructions related to installation proved to be more challenging than any other Adobe extension installation previously. Yes, I had explored this extension however with a confusing process I simply did not get the extension installed properly. FYI my version of CC2014 does not list this extension in the windows>extension menu as some instructions suggest nor does it appear in windows>behaviors. I had to find and place the database dialog in the right panel to see the activated database setup when a PHP page was loaded in DW.

Thanks for the nudge.
