DB setup issues

I setup the DB on my godaddy server and now how do I get dreamweaver to connect to it so I can set up my google maps with my DB addresses?

Do I need to duplicate the DB with my local server or can I connect directly with godaddy? I entered the info to connect to the godaddy DB in DW and it would not connect

Please help!!

It looks like your database information is not correct. You should contact GoDaddy to ask them how you would correctly connect to the database in Dreamweaver.

DB Setup Issues

I am new to Pro Maps as well as WebAssist. Not being a web guy or DB expert the support materials have been great and everything works as designed. For the most part even I get it. That being said I to am struggling on the DB part. I have been able to put manual addresses into my Pro Map but quickly I wanted to get them from a recordset. A what ??? Should I do this with DW CS4 on a testing server ??? Should I do it via my remote Site Server live DB directly??? So many questions.

I eventually set up a testing server with DW and imported my remote DB into a local DB named the same, etc. When I start Pro Maps and go through the steps to include the use of the Show Multiple button and pick my fields supporting the Address option from the recordset, everything seems to work fine until I look at the _promaps_geocache.xml file. I don't seem to be updating my _promaps_geocache.xml file. I would assume that appropriate entries from the recordset would populate the _promaps_geocache.xml. Is that correct? If I do this locally, should I just be able to push the _promaps_geocache.xml to my remote site and all will be well?

Additionally, if for some reason I had to or wanted to do another Insert > Google > ProMaps I would generate another wagmp_map_#.php file. It looks like I do? Is having incrementing versions of these files ok?

Any light on this or even philosophy of testing servers vs. remote servers for Pro Maps web development work would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Yes, the geocoded locations should be written to the cache file. Make sure you have read/write permissions set for this file as well as its containing directory. The cache file should be written to if you set up your pages on the live server the first time the map is accessed.

Yes, for each map a new file will be created. If you remove the particular map from the page, you will not need those files any longer.

Doing testing on your local server just to get to know how the extension is fine, but you will have to get a new api key for when you post your pages onto the remote (live) server.
