Since many versions now, Adobe has removed Server Behaviors from DW, so you wont have anymore access to UI Drag & Drop Database connexion, except if you run extensions from Drop Zone, Web Assist....

Well, beside giving the URL I wont be by any help, I never used them 😞

Lena supplied the links to the 3rd party extensions just click on 'Drop Zone' (DMX ZONE) and 'Web Assist'. IF you do decide to purchase  I would check with the company that the extensions are compatible with your version of DW.

 

The other option is to search youtube for some tutorials on php/mysqli database connectivity and querying. It's quite easy to write your own connection and querying once you have explored a few videos. Infact its what I would recommend if you have the time and are genuinely interested in advancing your skillset.

The website says the extension is compatible with Dreamweaver CS6 or newer. However l would check with the company first before purchasing.

Well, as I told you, I never used one of them, we do everything in code here at the studio.

 

If you don't code and would like to use extensions for this purpose, I'd say that before choosing one or the other (which are identically renowned by other users) it's important that you define your needs, expectations and medium-term evolutions as regards the relationship with your database.


It's also important to consider the very structure and organization of the data within the database, as this will determine your expectations in terms of the interface for managing your SQL queries.


Then are you just expecting to read the data in the database, or are you also going to manage this data (Create, Update, Delete...) because if you create new records, then do you also need to manage file transfers when inserting data into the database... do you need to manipulate binary files once transferred... etc....

from all those questions, will depend on your specifications to define the most appropriate extension provider in relation to the other extensions present in the catalog, which will transversally complete your toolbox.

I have used both of the extensions that @L e n a has mentioned. The one closest to the old Dreamweaver panels is the Webassist extension.

 

But beware, if you purchase the extension for Dreamweaver, you cannot use it in any other editor/IDE. So, when Dreamweaver gets pulled (most likely very soon), so will the usefulness of the extension.

 

I now use the DMXZone extensions on an IDE called Wappler.

 

Wappler, the only real Dreamweaver alternative.

By @abebel47900914

 

Integrated Development Environment. Which means its more sophisticated than just a normal html editor. It has built in options to assist you with your coding, providing suggestions and some now have AI as an option -Artificial Intelligence.  They can have extensions available  which make it easier to produce dynamically driven solutions or include components like slideshows, liaise with external APIs - Application Program Interface etc etc

 

Wappler is a fairly new application, 5 years old, which offers a myriad of options for non coders. It may be suitable depending on your requirements. If you are building something as an amateur, have no skill or knowledge about coding, are not intending to commit to web development or app building full time then it could prove useful. If on the other hand web development or app  building is your intended career choice then it would be advisable to learn to code. Ben has left a link in his reply......click on the word Wappler.

I'm sorry this, here, is not the Wappler community, it's Adobe Dreamweaver's forum. Please post any issues you are having in the Wappler community forum - posted the link twice already. Or just send us an email with screenshots and more details to support [at] wappler [dot] io

There's a dimension that must not be overlooked, and that needs to be taken into account. If at the outset you are looking for the server behavior palettes inherent in older versions of DW, this may possibly imply that you already have a site base, and that this one is likely to have been based on server behaviors...

 

If this is the case, if you use new extensions (DMX Zone as well as Webassist) or if you start working with Wappler again, or even if you develop your own code using MySqli (I personally prefer PDO, but that's another subject), you're bound to encounter artifacts between the old code and the new one... in my opinion, it would be wiser to go back to the old code and update it, whether from the new extensions, the new environment, or the new approach based on hand-coding.

 

If you now start a brand new project, everything remains green and open... it's up to you to move towards the environment that will suit you best, taking into account the comments made by everyone here on this forum.
