I have a HostGator account that has about 10 websites on it, I want to be able to edit these sites on my local computer with Dreamweaver CS5.5.
I have set up WAMP.
This site works when I try to view php files (My Wewb Sites)http://localhost/mywebsites/
I have tried the same settings with different sites but I can't view PHP files http://localhost/site.com/
But when I try anyother of my sites they don't work, I have checked and double checked and the settings are the same, but one site still dosen't display php files.
Please help My laptop is about to go out the window.
THE SITE BELOW DOSE WORK WITH THESE SETTINGS!
THIS SITE DOSE WORK
As a last resort I would very much appreciate it if possible for someone to connect remotly with my laptop to try and see what I'm doing wrong.
First this problem has nothing to do with Hostgator. This is strictly a localhost setup.
Let's first clarify "doesn't work". First, are you getting any error mesage when you load the page? Or is the page blank? Or is the page printing the PHP code to the screen?
The error message is:
Dynamicaaly related files could not be resolved because the site definition is not correct for this server"
And I also get this from another site
Dynamically related files could not be resolved because of an internal server error
Is Wamp server running? See screenshot of Wamp icon in taskbar.
When you click the Wamp icon, if the server isn't already Online, click Put Online.
Also click Start All Services. Wamp should be running now.
When you click LocalHost from the menu, you should see the Wamp main page in your browser with all your sites listed under Your Projects.
What do you see when you click on Your Project folders?
No http://localhost/bestreviews4uonline.com/ dosen't load.
And with WAMP I start all services and can access my phpmyadmin but wamp is off line.
I will try that now and get back to you
Do you use Skype on your system?
If yes, Skype conflicts with Wamp because they both use port 80 connection. Below is a YouTube video that shows how to resolve this:
This is extremly confusing, so I have 2 myphpadmins, 1 from WAMP and the other from my host
The phpmyadmin from my host has all of my database, when I click on 1 of the databases on the left I get a list of tables.
But when I go into the WAMP phpMyAdmin and click on a database on the left there is nothing there. So its very confusing, for me anyway
One is on the remote server, the other is on your local hard drive.
Server: localhost via UNIX Socket
Server: Localhost (localhost via TCP/IP)
Remote server is populated with MySql data. Your local copy of WAMP server is not.
Going back to original question, can you get local WAMPSERVER to "Online" status yet?
Your local testing server isn't properly defined in DW yet.

When you're done, the final screen should look like this:

Hi again Nancy O,
Her is the code from one of the pages that don't work:
* Front to the WordPress application. This file doesn't do anything, but loads
* wp-blog-header.php which does and tells WordPress to load the theme.
* @package WordPress
* Tells WordPress to load the WordPress theme and output it.
* @var bool
/** Loads the WordPress Environment and Template */
