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...

local root folder: Macintosh HD:Applications:JRun4:servers:default:cfusion:squidfire:

    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?
