Connecting to the sample database (PHP)
During installation, Dreamweaver copies a SQL script to your hard disk. You can use this script to automatically create a sample MySQL database. This section describes how to create a connection to the sample database.
This section assumes you have installed and configured MySQL on your local or remote computer. To download and install the database system, visit the MySQL website at www.mysql.com.
To create a database connection:
- Create the sample MySQL database using the SQL script (see Creating the MySQL database).
- Create the connection in Dreamweaver (see Creating a database connection).
