My problem is this: I am creating a website in wich the vast majority of pages and files that form are made in PHP. When I configure a test server on my computer (for the moment can not be anywhere else), to indicate the URL where I put the folder where the files are hosted on my site, since that folder is in my computer, but whatever I do always modified and changed to http://misitio (where misisitio is the name of my website). How can I do to make that no happen?
I set up my test server as you have said, even indicating the full path to the folder containing the files of my website, but nothing, I still have the same problem. It occurred to me that you could fix also indicating the Internet port, so it is something like http://localhost:8080/misitio, so I'll try and then comment on how it went.
Which testing server are you using -- XAMPP, WAMP, MAMP?
I use WAMP. It resides on my C: drive.
Wamp requires that my site files be in wamp's www folder (same as my local site):
In Dreamweaver CS6, the set-up looks like this:
SERVER NAME: Testing server
CONNECT USING: Local/Network
SERVER FOLDER: C:\wamp\www\MySite\
WEB URL: http://localhost/MySite/
I uninstalled the program XAMPP and instead I installed the WAMP program. After installing this program I've done what you advised me and my problem was resolved.Thank you, Nancy O.,!
By the way, how do I take for solved this issue?
