Installing Pure PHP Upload Extensions in Dreamweaver MX problem

I am new to installing new Server Behaviors.  How do you install the new Pure PHP Upload Extension in Dreamweaver MX?  I would like to use Dreamweaver MX to upload the file and to insert other fields into the table but I cannot get the extension installed.  Do I paste the whole upload.PHP file in the space when it asks for a block of code?  I need guidance please.  Currently I cannot create a test server.  Dreamweaver's Server Behavior palette  tells me to create a site for the file, choose the document type; both of which I've done, then tells me to set up the site's testing server, which I have, but no checkbox is next to it, and the last step is to "press the + button and choose Recordset" which I cannot find.

Hi hemightbeagiant,

To install any extension, you need to dowload the .mxp file and run it.  The Extension Manager should launch and install the extension.

After the extension installs, look at the entry in the the Extension Manager...most people put instructions for using the code in there.  For the File Upload, it will be located on the Applications Panel, under Server Behaviors.  Click the + (big plus sign) button there to see all of the server behaviors.

For your other problems:

Check the testing server definition for the site and make sure all of that data is filled out correctly and test the connection to the testing server.  If everything is correct, DW will place a file on the testing server and the checkbox will mark up.

>> press the + button and choose Recordset

You don't need to make a recordset at this time.

Good answer, we had to update Macromedia MX 2004 and it worked.  But the answer is a agood one none the less.

Bah, I should have thought to ask if the extension was compatible with MX.  Glad you got it to work.
