How To Set Up The PHP / MySQL Site Definition In Dreamweaver

By | November 15, 2011

‘Site Definition entries’ used while defining a site play an important role in connecting a MySQL database in ‘Dreamweaver’ successfully. Here I would like to share an example of PHP / MySQL Definition which uses a Linux Hosting Server with PHP and which runs over a machine named such as mywebsite.host.co.in, and MySQL runs on other machine which can be named such as mysql.host.co.in, furthermore the ‘Dreamweaver should be running on a local workstation.

In this tutorial, we will be using FTP for the purpose of transfer of file between the Linux Hosting server and workstation.

Site Name: mywebsite
