A couple of glitches...

The last two times I installed the PowerCMS on a client's site, I have noticed two things:

One, I have to go back and upload the Connections file. It won't just upload with all the rest, anymore.

Second, after I have everything uploaded, I go to click on Webassist>CMS>Add content to CMS, and when I look at the CMS nothing is there. I have tried restarting DW. I have tried logging out of the CMS and back in. Still nothing. I finally found out (and I had to do this last time - I wrote myself a note), that I need to completely restart my computer. Then I click on Webassist>CMS>Add content to CMS, and it works. So I've changed absolutely nothing, but restarted my computer. It is a bit of an annoyance. Glad I wrote a note to myself to try rebooting my computer!

Am I the only one? What can I do to change this?

Mac (mid-summer 2010) 3tb hd, 32gb ram, 480gb ssd, El Capitan
DW (CC2015) latest build

Dreamweaver can sometimes lose the connection to the database. It would prevent you from creating a Recordset or doing and Insert and Update or even testing a connection. That would also cause the PowerCMS to not update. Restarting Dreamweaver usually resolves that issue when I run into it.
