Problem setting up Dreamweaver Win7

Apr 7, 2013 3:51 AM

My previous xp machine for classic asp sites, died and I now have a new machine where I have installed windows 7 with IIs6. I still am using CS3 although have cs6 installed on a php machine working OK.

 

I am having some problems getting Dreamweaver cs3 running correctly.

I had one site on DW running OK lets say Site1 which was running I think OK.

 

I decided to load another site, Site2

When I did this I had an error message

"this may cause some operations such as synchronization, to work incorrectly"

Site 1 is positioned at D:/Mywebsites/Site1

Site 2 is positioned at D:/Mywebsites/Site2

 

After getting the error message I deleted the Site2, problem to be investigated after I had finished work on Site1

 

I then tried to continue with site1 but now cannot get site 1 to open.

When I open Site1/index.htm I get an error message

 

Module    IIS Web Core

Notification    MapRequestHandler

Handler    StaticFile

Error Code    0x80070002

Requested URL    http://localhost:80/index.htm

Physical Path    C:\inetpub\wwwroot\index.htm

Logon Method    Anonymous

Logon User    Anonymous

 

It seems to me

Requested URL    http://localhost:80/index.htm

Should be http://localhost:80/site1/index.htm

 

Physical Path    :\inetpub\wwwroot\index.htm

Should be     D:\inetpub\wwwroot\Site1\index.htm

 

If I attempt to create a new site in Local info with say Site3 I select D:/Mywebsites/Site3 But the Local root folder entry is D:/Mywebsites/ the Site3 does not automatically appear.

 

I am wondering how I check where is Local host

At the moment I am using D:/inetpub/wwwroot

Many thanks

John Hardy

    Site 2 is positioned at D:/Mywebsites/Site2

     

    This alert is typically thrown when one site definition is nested inside another one, e.g.,

     

    Site1 = D:/Mywebsites/Site1

    Site2 = D:/Mywebsites/Site1/Site2

     

    Are you sure you didn't have such a structure?

     

    The rest of your messages are a bit confusing. A file named "index.html" can not contain any VBScript or ASP calls and therefore wouldn't need the participation of IIS at all. It's just a plain-jane HTML file. Nevertheless, how do you have the local testing server for this site defined? What are the contents of all of the fields?

     

    Let's take another tack - when you use Explorer, where do you see this index.html file located on the D: drive? How have you defined the local root folder in the site definition (i.e., what is the path that you have specified)?

    Let's see the details of the site definition for this site please (both local site and testing server)? Can you provide the contents of each field in the definition, please?
