I am trying to learn how to use MySQL and PHP from my local computer, and set up everything exactly as the instructions had suggested, and now I cannot get dreamweaver to read my sql file. When I press test or ok, it gives me a 403 forbidden message.  Any help?

403 Forbidden usually means that you have a permissions problem, either on the filesystem itself, or in server configuration. I would check the filesystem first. Do ls -l on the file from the terminal.

Actually just do it in Finder.

From the File menu, choose Show.
Choose Privileges from the pop-up menu in the Info window.
Using the pop-up menus, change permissions settings as necessary.

You want read permissions for all users.
