Getting started with upgrade to data bridge v2

TOTAL FRUSTRATION! I just bought the upgrade, the tutorial had nothing to do with the product I bought and there was no indication of how to install the thing. After I did manage (with no help from you guys) to get it installed, I could find NO MANUAL or "getting started" type information. VERY FRUSTRATING. IS there a manual or anything related to the use of this product (please no tutorial from the stone age...). Sorry to be so rude, but I did not expect to purchase an upgrade and then spend 2 hours trying to figure out how to install and use the product. Can you please post or send me a link to a user guide or manual?

Unfortunately there are no updated manuals I can send you. We do have a satisfaction guarantee, so if you are unhappy with your purchase I can give you a full refund within the first 15 days of purchase.

If you post questions here then I can answer them. Installation questions are answered here as well as usage. What are you trying to do? What do you have questions about? I can try to help.

Thanks for your reply. I really don't want a refund, as I need the functionality you provide! Anyway, I got things installed, but when I try to create a database connection (i version) I get a Dreamweaver message that says no MySQL module was loaded in the server (localhost). That is NOT the case, as I checked the config menu in Wamp64 and the mysql_i functions are there. Plus, I have used MySQLi on this computer with Scriptcase, and have a mysql connection thru that program that works. I don't know how to deal with Dreamweaver, but seems that Webassist should pick up the connection. The old version did that. Any ideas?
I ran this code and got a successful connection, so it seems to me that the basis for a connection is there.
<?php

$con = mysqli_connect("localhost","your_username","your_password","database_name");

// Check connection

if (mysqli_connect_errno())

{

echo "Failed to connect to MySQL: " . mysqli_connect_error();

}

else echo "Successfully connected, happy coding!"

?>

This is usually an issue with the Server URL setting for the testing server defined in your dreamweaver site definition.

Make sure you have a testing server installed and make sure the server URL is set correctly. Make sure it uses https:// and www. if your live site requires it.

OK, I was finally able to connect. What about this:
===============================
Step 1: Open the existing recordset or other server behavior.
Step 2: Switch to the new MySQLi connection.

Migration complete!
=====================
All that I could see happened was a new _i connection file was created. Do I still have to hand edit all the queries etc in the application? I have tons of these and it appears there are NO recordset defined that carry through.

Yes. Any code that used the old connection will need to be updated. If you used Dreamweaver to create the insert, update, delete, or recordset code, then you can just open the server behavior in the server behaviors panel and change the connection to the mySQLi version and the code will automatically be updated.
