Dreamweaver got left behind a few years ago when it came to providing database connectivity/querying. It used the now out-dated and not to be used mysql function NOT the more up-to-date mysqli (improved) or PDO connection function.

 

The message is saying your php server is most likely using a more up-to-date version of mysql and youre trying to connect to it using Dreamweaver, which is not compatible.

 

You have a couple of options, either write your own connection and queries to the database, there are plenty of videos on youtube which shows you how to do this or buy into a 3rd party extension provided by a developer who has kept up with moderm workflows, which cant be said for Dreamweaver.

Your local testing server is likely running PHP 7 or higher which doesn't support the outdated MySQL connections.  Ideally, your remote and local testing servers should use the same versions of PHP & MySQL.  To make this work, you either need to revert to an older server model like 5.6  (not very smart for security reasons) or switch to modern coding practices.
