arrow downFrequently Asked Questions

I'm new to web development, where should I start?

If you are new to developing websites or have never used a Dreamweaver extension, we suggest you start with the Data Bridge Getting Started Guide - or in Dreamweaver, click on WebAssist > Help and use the help links in the Data Bridge wizards, as needed.

Do I need a PHP testing server?

Setting up a PHP testing server will make your life easier when you start creating dynamic/database-driven websites. A testing server will allow you to run your entire PHP website on your local computer for testing, and will also allow you to manage your database without uploading to a remote server. If your computer is not already set up to be a web server, we have tutorials that will assist you for both Windows and Mac users.
