Many apologies if this is the wrong forum. I looked through all the different forums and wasn't sure. Please let me know and I'll transfer this to whichever the appropriate forum is.
I use PHP/MySQL for my website and have been using DW CS5 for Site Management/Connections.
I've been trying to set up a Testing Server on localhost using xampp. It seems to have all downloaded successfully and I can access my localhost PHPMyADMIN.
I have set up my testing server in the Site Management of my existing website, so that when I F12 it should just show in my localhost site.
I get the error message below:
Warning: mysql_pconnect() [function.mysql-pconnect]: Access denied for user 'dreamsin'@'localhost' (using password: YES) in C:\xampp\htdocs\dreamsin_testing\Connections\dreamsin_localhost.php on line 9
Fatal error: Access denied for user 'dreamsin'@'localhost' (using password: YES) in C:\xampp\htdocs\dreamsin_testing\Connections\dreamsin_localhost.php on line 9
I know why I get the error message. It is of course because my webpages refer to a Connections file, which contains the login information for an outside production server.
What I'm really hoping for is some information about how I can use my localhost test server best? i.e how should I be setting this up so that I can access any page without changing any of the connections info for the production site?
Many thanks for the help. I'm very grateful for any help in this.
