Localhost connection not working

Localhost connection not working

I have some updating todo on my website.

I wish to carry this out on localhost to enable some testing before reupload.
I downloaded the site files OK and placed these into Dreamweaver.
I exported the database files from the server to this PC and the database is working correctly in Navicat.

When I try to open the index.php page I get the following error.
Can anyone please assist me with this?
Thanks
John


Warning: mysql_pconnect(): Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES) in C:\xampp\htdocs\mywebsite April 2018\Connections\conn1.php on line 9

Fatal error: Access denied for user 'root'@'localhost' (using password: YES) in C:\xampp\htdocs\mywebsite April 2018\Connections\conn1.php on line 9

The database opens in Navicat correctly

The connection file is as below
<?php
# FileName="Connection_php_mysql.htm"
# Type="MYSQL"
# HTTP="true"
$hostname_conn1 = "localhost";
$database_conn1 = "connectionname april 2018";
$username_conn1 = "root";
$password_conn1 = "mypassword";
$conn1 = mysql_pconnect($hostname_conn1, $username_conn1, $password_conn1) or trigger_error(mysql_error(),E_USER_ERROR);
?>

This means your database name, username, or password is incorrect. It appears your database name "connectionname april 2018" is almost certainly wrong. The database name shouldn't allow spaces.

Thanks very much for the quick response Ray,

I made the change to the database name, that is no spaces but with the same result.

I then tested the MySQL Connection from within Dreamweaver which presented the following:

The files from the _mmServerScripts folder are for the server model PHP-MySQL
You try to connect to a database using a different server model
Please remove this folder outside the Dreamweaver environment on both local and testing machines and try again.

Can you see where I am going wrong Ray?

John

That is usually an issue with the Site URL value for the testing server defined in your Dreamweaver site.

Hello Ray

I have checked the testing server values and they seem OK.

Digging a bit deeper I have recently upgraded a new PC to Windows10 and am using Dreamweaver CS6.
I wish to use the windows10 machine to revise this website but notice if in the Dreamweaver Menu I select Commands- Manage extensions I get a message box stating the Extension Manager is unavailable please reinstall.

I found page https://www.adobe.com/exchange/em_download/em6_download.html and ran the Extension Manager CS6.0.8.zip where when the set-up.exe is run it the states installer failed to initialise, "This could be due to a missing file" and provides a link to https://helpx.adobe.com/support.html#/top_products

LATER
A bit more info on this

I tried to instal DataBridge_124.ZXP from my list of extensions, this opened the extension manager which then messaged
"This extension can not be installed, it requires Dreamweaver version 9 or greater"

Can you please say what needs to be done?

Many thanks

John

What version of Dreamweaver are you running? CS6 is version 12, so that shouldn't be an issue. It appears to be a problem with the extension manager. You may want to try reinstalling Dreamweaver and the Extension Manager.

Thanks Ray,
I found that I could not reinstall CS6! I was informed that the serial number was revoked.
I purchased this from Adobe and installed this on the present machine and another PC I have here working perfectly.
Is there any way I can install the extension manager or any other extension manager, Project Seven perhaps? Would that work? May be similar.
On non dynamic sites this Dreamweaver installation works perfectly.

Regards
John

You could try with one of the other extension managers. I really don't know since I don't know exactly what is wrong with your installation. I suppose trying the Project7 or DMXZone extension manager is worth a try.
