Dreamweaver Minor Update Screwing Up Connection

I just did the minor update to Dreamweaver and now all my site connections are gone. I try to create a new connSiteDb connect through DataAssist and when I click any of the options to create a connection nothing happens. Any suggestions on what to do? I adjust my database code constantly and now Webassist can't find my connection.

When you say they're gone, I presume the Connections folder is still there with the PHP file in it? Is it the Databases/Bindings/Server Behaviors panels that have disappeared from the Dreamweaver interface? What version of Dreamweaver did you update from/to?

Dreamweaver 21.4. Yes, the connection file is in the Connections folder, the _mmServerScripts folder and files are present. But, If I try to look at the database in Dreamweaver it says "No Tables Found. Check your connections and testing server settings". If I try to create a Recordset it tells me there are no tables. The same if I open a pre-existing Recordset. If I try to use a binding the DataSources window says "An unidentified error has occurred."

Do you have .htaccess file in the local folder? If so, rename it to htaccess.txt. I find if there's a .htaccess file present it prevents me from connecting to the database and I get the exact errors you're describing.

I tried that. There is an .htaccess file, but it's never been a problem before. I tried adding .txt and it didn't make any difference. I wound up rebuilding the database connection and the site again and restarting. It appears to have worked. Thanks for the suggestions.

You'd need to take the full stop off the beginning of the filename too - htaccess.txt

I've always found this to be an issue with Dreamweaver, if there is a .htaccess file in the local Files, it won't see the database. Anyway, glad you got it working!
