    Default MAMP & Dreamweaver MX

    Hi all,

    I am trying to connect my database I created using MAMP to Dreamweaver MX is anyone familiar with the settings I would need to use in Dreamweaver to make a testing server and then connect to the database?

    Thanks,
    Tom

    I don't think that dreamweaver works with a database. You'd make your php (or other) page in DW, then view and that would be what connects, not DW.
    I think, anyway. That's how it works with mysql.

    I wouldn't know, then. didn't realize it had db integration.
    maybe localhost is wrong.
    never tried to connect with dw myself, so can't really help, sorry.

    Shouldn't be logging in as root.

    Are you sure that your password is right? If it is, it shouldn't be; that's a really stupid password, especially for the root account.

    Well... it's just on his local machine. But, yeah.
    Maybe you're just giving us an example?

    Doesn't matter... it's open to the Internet, unless s/he's behind a firewall; even if s/he is, it'll make his/her machine more vulnerable in the possibility that somebody does get past that firewall.

    Sure, but I figure once someone's one my computer, there's a lot more important stuff I wouldn't want people getting than the contents of a database. Then again, this database might contain something particularly special.
    Either way, though, I'd agree changing it doesn't hurt and probably helps.

    Getting past a firewall doesn't always equal gaining access to a computer If someone were, for example, to gain access to another machine on the network, it would leave the Mac open.

    Eh, that's true. I'm assuming tomy didn't give us his password, though. Right? Help us end this cycle
