setting up a dynamic site

hi, i could use some help. i have a mac g5, osX 10.3, and i'm creating a site with Cartweaver and Coldfusion...

im currently working on my first dynamic site, and i've gotten as far as getting mySQL working, and i have my database and DSN set up in my coldfusion admin with an "ok" status. so i'm ready to set up the dsn in dreamweaver...

when i go to bindings > create dsn variable i get an error saying the server address cannot be resolved.

here's how i have things set up...my site is called "squidfire" and its in:

in the site setup i have:
local root folder: Macintosh HD:Applications:JRun4:servers:default:cfusion:squidfire:
remote server: access>none
testing server: Macintosh HD:Applications:JRun4:servers:default:cfusion:
and not sure what goes in "url prefix"

thanks for your help!

ok, i got it working, nevermind...hehe.

another question though: i still have my remote server set to none, so when i do get my hosting set up, do i change that to allow me to upload the site?

Hi owen3979,
yep thats it when you have your Hosting set-up just update that section with the FTP  details

Acess: FTP
Host Directory:
