Dreamweaver MX wth PHP & MySQL

When trying to create a MySQL Connection to a database I have created, I get the following error:

----------------------------------------------------------

HTTP Error Code 404 File Not Found.  Here are some possible reasons for the problem:

1) There is no testing server running on the server machine.

2) The testing server specified for this site does not map to the http://www.myserver.com/_mmServerScripts/MMHTTPDB.php URL.  Verify that the URL Prefix maps to the root of the site.

----------------------------------------------------------

Everything I am doing seems to be ok but I can't figure out why I am continually getting this.  Any ideas?

Thanks

Where are the files? Do you have server software on your machine? PHP? MySQL?

I take it you just ran through the wizards, expecting they would work?

The files are on my server (I didn't put the name down because it's a company one) and are all installed ok.

Everything has been installed ok and I can view the MySQL databases via the web with phpmyadmin.

>> I take it you just ran through the wizards, expecting they would work?

Er, no not quite.  Bit of a novice with PHP and MySQL but spent time getting both setup on the server I'm using and also installing phpmyadmin.  Vexed by the error though...

Could be tons of things. Permissions, differences in file/folder structure, you're not pointing to the right place for one of the required pieces, the PHP compiler/interpreter isn't where you told the computer to find it, the database isn't where you told the computer to find it, you haven't uploaded the files to the server (this has to run through the server), you're using FILE/OPEN, you're trying to view this in Dreamweaver, lots of things. Without code and/or a link, it's basically impossible to narrow it down.

This is true.  I don't know what I've done however, as it seems to be solved.  It must've been a simple typo or something that I'd overseen...

Thanks anyway.

Well, if it's working you obviously fixed it. It could have been a server setting that was changed by somebody else, too.  It could have been a LOT of things...sometimes you never really know WHAT it was. I've had things that got 'fixed' when the server was rebooted. ;-)
