Dreamweaver PHP MySQL

14 years ago I was using Macromedia Dreamweaver to develop PHP and MySQL database driven websites.

For the last 14 years I was not using Dreamweaver nor developing websites.

I wish now to develop PHP and MySQL driven active website.

Does now Adobe Dreamweaver has same features as previously Macromedia one?

Unfortunately not. The php/mysql server behaviours were never updated and their time came to an end and were removed. You can however still buy a commercial php/mysqli extension for the current version of Dreamweaver :

I also believe this company still offers a php/mysqli Dreamweaver extension:

They also got fed up with the lack of progress Dreamweaver was making and produced their own editor:

The editor however is heavily reliant on proprietary code, so it might not be to everyones taste, just depends on your objectives.

What exactly are you looking to build with your website?  As mentioned already, the server behaviors have been discontinued. For some this means other editors, for others this may mean using a CMS (ie: Wordpress, etc.).  Understanding what your scope is would help us to make a recommendation for you.

Thank you for your response. I wish to build a commercial website that will
have two sections. One would be businesses listing, where any business
could provide its contact details, products and services, and special
offers that they may have at the time. Second section would be
advertisements.
So I would need search, results, login, records, update, delete, etc.
I would also need a form that would be used for messages linked to a
particular advertisement which potential buyers will send to the seller and
all messages will appear at the seller's account after login.
I have all SQL codes, but I do not know anything about PHP coding.
Macromedia Dreamweaver was giving all PHP codes and I was inserting only
SQL codes. As I understand, that is not the case with the current
Dreamweaver.
Regards,
Dragan

WordPress with a Business Directory plugin would probably do what you need.

The web has undergone massive changes in 14 years.  And you haven't been actively developing sites for so long there's a whole new world of things you must learn before you can create sites again, particularly secure, database-driven ones.

 

How skilled are you with modern code in HTML5, CSS, JavaScript and PHP 7?  To be successful you will need good coding skills and much, much more...  Dreamweaver is a good tool but do you have the time and interest to learn everything you need to know?

 

As Ben said, it might make more sense to use an online site builder (CMS) instead. WordPress is a popular PHP/MySQL framework but it's not the only one.  For some projects, Drupal or Magento might be a better choice.  And Dreamweaver would be useful for customizing the theme.
