Dreamweaver and Local Testing Server





Dennise
I installed WAMP as a testing host server and I think the install is good. I use Dreamweaver 3 and here is my question.

In Dreamweaver, how do I set up my "Site Definition" for a local server (i.e. WAMP)

After I installed WAMP I put my website in C:\wamp\www, and I understand the WAMP host directory path is: http://localhost/. If I point my browser to a PHP file in my website using http://localhost/mywebsitedirectory/file.php, the page appears correctly.

Then I setup my Dreamweaver 'Site Definition" this way:

Web Server Info:

Server Access = Local/Network
Remote folder = http://localhost/mywebsitedirectory/

But Dreamweaver wont accept this "remote folder" and throws up this error message "Dreamweaver cannot display the remote folder for the current site. The filename, directory name or volume lablel syntax is incorrect."

How can I get Dreamweaver to preview my webpages via my local WAMP test host serve Question

C://localhost/mywebsitedirectory/

Instead of the http. At least that is how I have in on my set up and it works fine.
It's a bit tricky at first if you get your live view and live code set up it gets even better.

I added wamp's www dir as a site and works just fine.

HTTP Address:
Code:
http://localhost/
Local Network:
Code:
The www directory of wamp.
For example: C:\wamp\www\
URL to browse:
Code:
http://localhost/
