While executing findDynamicSources in Recordset.htm, a JavaScript error occurred - General error occurs when trying to create a database link

I have attached a video link and more details in private, but basically when DW 2018 opens it gives the findDynamicSources error, and and when I try to create a database connection it says an unidentified error occurs.

When I tried to add a database connection to a different site, it gives me a 500 Internal Server error.

I can ftp upload fine, I can connect to phpMyadmin.

I am completely lost and I really hope you can help point me to a solution.

Have you tried clearing you winfilecache .dat file? That findDynamicSources error seems like one that might go away with a cleared cache.

Errors when setting up a connection are usually because of the Site Settings and the Testing server url being configured improperly. If you continue to have problems I can work with you in a screen sharing session in order to figure out what is going on. Just reply with a US phone number or skype contact information in the private area.

Hi Ray,

That is so kind of you, and you would not believe the reason this is happening....

I am trying out a new web host - iPAGE - they do not allow Dreamweaver to connect to the MySQL server! How crazy is that!

Thanks for all your assistance, and your great product!

They shouldn't really be able to stop Dreamweaver from connecting to the database, since Dreamweaver uses a web page to make the connection. My guess is that I could get it working for you.
