I'm trying to get PHP working. I've set up PHP and Apache for Windows on an earlier computer without problem; DW was not involved. I've also set up websites without PHP using Dreamweaver CS3 w/o problems. But I'm having problems with CS5. even though I've carefully followed instructions, tutorials and videos re. setting up a site on Windows so I can program PHP pages. The php editor seems to be working, even though it is flagging errors on some code which I know is good PHP code.
I can't get the site definition right to save my life. I used Wampserver and I found the phpinfo page, so I know that's working.The server is on. I realize Dreamweaver has to know where the apache server is, and I point it to htdocs, which is buried deeply within the wamps directory. I did not make any changes to the apache or php ini files, since I was not directed to do so in the installation instructions.
I can't navigate, in the browser, using localhost. When I try to set up a php page I get "Dynamically=related files cannot be discovered because there is no site definition for this document". I've tried removing the folder which would contain my web files and starting a new site definition, but DW brings up the old names as reasons for syncronization problems. Any ideas out there?
