steps to integrate powerstore 2 with existing site

steps to integrate powerstore 2 with existing site

I have build a static site and am now ready to begin working with Powerstore2. I have followed the steps for preparing my system for dynamic development. All seems good. I have unzipped and copied powerstore2 to the root folder of my site (inside of c:/inetpub/www.root/handsomehounds/powerstore2)

I was wondering what I should do now? Should I move all the powerstore files into the same level as my handomehounds files? I have created a template with an editable region with the id of mainContent as well.

Thanks,

Lisa

If the Root of your Dreamweaver site is:
c:/inetpub/wwwroot/handsomehounds/


then the power store files should be in that folder.

integrate powerstore

1. Perhaps I was not clear enough with my question, I have no idea how to utilize powerstore now that I have all my files set up.

Also, I am so confused. I followed your step by step instructions to set up my site. Now I have no idea how to upload to my remote server. I think that all I see is my computer when I try to upload, not my godaddy server.

2. What exactly does this mean "Before you set up a testing server folder, you must define a local and remote folder. You can often use the settings of your remote folder for your testing server because dynamic pages placed in the remote folder can normally be processed by an application server."
Does this mean that I don't need a remote folder on my computer? Do I test my files live on my real server?

3. I created this site on my d drive, I copied all of the files into my c drive. I created the site and opened it up in Dreamweaver with this new root location. Is this going to cause me any problems?

I don't like to criticize, but if your company ever needs any input on your training documentation, call me. I am lost and frustrated.

1) I'm not sure I follow what you mean by "Utilize My Power Store" What exactly is it you ar to accomplish and where are you getting stuck.


To be able to upload your site to the remote GoDaddy server, you will need top configure the remote tab of the Site Definition to connect to the GoDaddy host through FTP.


2) Yes, this means that you can set up the testing and remote servers to connect to your GoDaddy Server. In this case you would not be testing the application on your local computer, you would be testing on the live server.

3) No it should not create any problems.

unable to update database connection file

I set up my site by bypassing the testing server, and configured my file for my live server only. I tested the connection and all seems good. I set up my database in Godaddy.com. I have all the Host name, user name, password and database name from godaddy. I went into dw, in the database field I entered the info in the mysql connection fields (see attached file). I tried to select my database, but I got an error - see attached error file. Can you advise?

I am at my wits end. I think that I followed your "preparing your system for dynamic development" word for word. I am still unable to update my database connection file via Dreamweaver. I am willing to pay someone to give me some help via the phone. I cannot wait another two days only to get more questions. PLEASE, have someone in tech support or an independent expert call me. I DON'T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO DO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I worked more on the problem. I may not have "specified the host name" initially. I have done that now, and I now have a new error message. Please see the attachment "new error message". Again, I will pay to speak with someone. I need to move on with this site.
