Dreamweaver 2020 no longer showing Server Behavior Extension

Recently I upgraded my Dreamweaver version to 2020, and suddenly I am unable to use the Server Behaviors extension--it's gone from my Window menu. If I go down to Extensions, it says, "No extensions available". My other computer that still has version 2019 still has Server Behaviors, so what happened to 2020? I would hate to lose the extension, especially since that functionality isn't built in to Dreamweaver anymore (which was an enormous mistake in my opinion; it was one of the best tools Dreamweaver had).

 

(Yes, I know MySQL is technically depricated, but I have an app that will convert the Dreamweaver code to MySQLi. I just hate that Adobe basically abandoned what was probably the best part about its web software.)

I have good news! On a whim, I uninstalled and reinstalled Dreamweaver 2020, and the server behaviors extension was back! Not sure what goofed it up the first time. Thanks for all of your help, everyone!

When you upgrade to a new version, you must also install your 3rd party extensions in that version.  Use the Extension Manager you used last time.

I tried to re-install with the Adobe Extension Manager, but it keeps giving an error message that I must be using Dreamweaver 13 or higher to install the extension. I'm using version 20.

I'm actually using this extension: https://exchange.adobe.com/creativecloud.details.1315.server-behavior-database.html. But, yes, I did restart Dreamweaver several times, and the extension still does not appear.

In the creative cloud app settings > apps  ... what default install language setting do you have? Reason I ask is because if you do NOT have English (North Amecian) set, it can cause problems with extensions installing from the Adobe exchange:

... also if you install the DMXZone extension manager they have an option to install the old server behaviors panel without the need to use the Adobe Exchange
