No Database Panel option

I'm incredibly new to dreamweaver, but following some tutorials my lecturer gave me.  However, in this project, I have to link the db I made in XAMP to the site via the Database Panel.  Now, there's no panel showing by default, going to the Windows tab does not have Database listed under it, and Ctrl-Shift-F10 just gives the same options as right-clicking.  I do have a .php page open, so it should (as far as I'm aware) be available, but it's just...not.


Any idea why it's not there and how I can make it be? Or at least how I can create a new MySQL connection without it?

    Suzie, they are deprecated for a reason.  Unless absolutely necessary it's not recommended that you use them for new sites.  It was deprecated because it uses old PHP code which may not work in many newer server environments and also becuase of the security risk the generated code opens up.
