Defining the host server

In DREAMWEAVER CC 2018 I have defined my site both locally and on my host server.
I managed to define the Primary Connection with the localhost.
I am trying to set up the server host and here I have problems. Do I use Additional Connections or do I add another Primary Connection?
What is the host servers MYSQL server. I thought (wrongly) that it was mySQLHost. I tried the ftp address more out of hope than conviction.
Having been given a nightmare experience with DMXZone I must say that your product and service are encouraging and at least working.
I hope that you can help here.
One last thing -- do you have a forum where we can show one another sites as we develop them, get feedback?
Thanks
Michael

The best technique is to use the same connection and define the live site with additional connections. That way your same page would work in both environments. Usually you can use "Localhost" for the live site, but if you open your phpMyAdmin the correct server name will show on the top of the browser window.

It looks like your testing server URL is set wrong in your dreamweaver site definition. You have it set to http://localhost, but it doesn't look like you are trying to connect to your localhost for testing.

If you want to send me your US phone number or Skype contact information I can try to help you get this set. The issue is in your Site Definition in Dreamweaver. Not your database connection.
