Can't create a data connection

Checked my DW site specifications several times. I get an unidentified error overtime. I have double checked the FTP connection as well as the logon info for the MySQL database. My testing server is on a remote machine.

Please post FTP information and the web site url and I can try to debug and find a solution for you.

Fixed

I was using my server IP. When I used localhost I go it to work.

The extension works on the latest version of dreamweaver, you just have to install the "Server Behaviors and Database" plugin from the Adobe store first.

More Problems Installing

Sent a private email as well.

So,first, I am also experiencing the problem with DMX Extension manager not installing anything correctly.

I used a terminal option to install the deprecated server behavior extension and web assist. They appear to be installed, buy I can't get the model connection option under web assist to give me annoying but a dialog with a caution triangle and an ok button. And the database connection gives me an error... MySQL module not loaded or can't use the mysql_(p)connect functions.

I did al this stuff after ununtalling and reinstalling DW cc 2017.

I could really use some step by step help to get this going.

Thanks.
