When i preview my site through dreamweaver it takes me to the login screen and then to my web page that has an inactive flash screen in it.

when i try and go directly to the site through the broswer NOTHING WORKS.

For example, i type in http://localhost/TechTeam/salestool.cfm

The browser tells me it was unable to find my server.

I also tried browsing to some other peoples sites (i downloaded all their stuff into my CFroot) and got the same unable to find server message. their sites work (in fact one was a tutorial site from macromedia.com)

RECAP: This is something fundamental because i can preview a non working version, but cannot even get to anything from the browser, what did i not do?

chk if u have ur application server started

see if u have got ur connections right

chk up with ur ODBC connections

chk up the path [alias names if given] for ur root directory & see if ur seeeing them right in the browser

if Db connections r right - chk up the DB server & make sure the services for ur DB r also started

chk with IIS services & make sure even they r started for ur project - if they r make sure u have the default document specified in it & it has the right path for the Home directory as well.

let me know
