Cartweaver design help

Tags: #help #cartweaver #dreamweavercs6

Well I'm a beginner web designer and I am finalizing the webpage with Carweaver. I am having trouble seeing the design of the file, for example: Application.php, cart.php, etc. I have used my FTP as my tesing server and still nothing shows up. I need some help because I have never really done this and I have a deadline to meet and this is slowing me down. So if anyone can help me understand this a bit more I would appreciate it, I also wached a few of the Cartweaver tutorials on youtube and I'm still having trouble.

    Hi Kendall,

     

    I'll be happy to help.  There are two things I always recommend, not just with a Cartweaver site but with any dynamic site or web app...

     

    1. back away from the app itself for a moment and be absolutely sure you have your local test environment set up and that you are using it properly.  Have you installed and have a working local test environment - I recommend Xampp, which is a very easy all-in-one installation of everything you will need.  Make sure this is all set up and working before moving forward.
    2. Kind of a follow up to the above - resist the temptation to upload and test on the server. Always test and develop locally and make sure everything looks and works as you want it locally before FTPing anything. Trying to develop and test on the remote server introduces many elements that are out of your control and have little to do with your site itself.  If your site works locally, then it should work on the server. If it doesn't the problem is server configuration not your site.
    3. Now, before trying to add Cartweaver to your design, as a practice run install it into a new, totally blank site and get this working. This exercise will allow you to get a better feel of things and to see how Caertweaver integrates into your presentation pages. After doing this you will be much better prepared to add Cartweaver to your own design.

     

    These are good steps to follow for anyone new to dynamic development. Many try to dive right into the deep end - taking this gradual approach is much better.  Even though Cartweaver makes adding e-commerce to your site about as easy as it can be, there is still a learning curve and it's best to wade into it gradually.

     

    Hope this helps.

     

    If you have any more questions at all, please feel free to pop over to the Cartweaver user forum where we can get much more specific.

    Hi Kendall,

     

    Based on that error, it would seem that you are having some issues with the live MySQL server.

    The error reads: ...target machine actively refused it".   PLease, refer the full error message to your hosting company so that they can check on that for you.

     

    To follow up, please, I request that you do so via http://support.cartweaver.com , so as to ensure that the issue is properly tracked by our team.

     

    Thanks,

    Oli
