"Dynamically-related files could not be resolved because the site definition..."

May 19, 2010 1:32 PM

"Dynamically-related files could not be resolved because the site definition is not correct for this server. Retry | Setup"

 

I'm attempting to hook DW CS5 into my Wordpress installation. I thought it seemed simple enough, but I'm stuck, frustrated, and confused.

 

My testing server is running XAMPP and a brand new installation of wordpress.

 

Remote server is running wordpress as well, with a test post or two.

 

In the 'Files' window, I can view my files on local view, testing server, and remote server. The files within each are identical.

 

Any help would be most appreciated. I've looked through the other thread here and followed the instructions I could find, but to no avail.

    Do you have apache and mysql running?

    Have you set up the wp-config file? i guess you have or you wouldn't see it.

    also web url should be http://localhost/wordpress.  that's probably what's wrong if you haven't defined that.

    I personally installed wordpress severals  times locally as i could only make the dynamic discover feature work  maybe once or twice each time i installed, then I would get this error.  After trying several different server setups i almost gave up. Today I  was working with wordpress outside of dreamweaver and was looking for a  way to change permalinks to have a php extension. After looking for a  while I noticed people kept talking about making differnet servers like  xamp able to handle permalinks. Then the light came on for me and I  realized each time I installed wordpress I would eventually change the  default permalink to day and name. So I turned it back to default in  wordpress and bingo I could now discover the files. Tried this several  times to make sure this was the issue. Yippe!!

    I had the same problem with Dreamweaver CS5 and Drupal. And the same solution -- it seems counter-intuitive to point to the server where one's local site lives, but it works. I made a tutorial video explaining how to get around that error for a Drupal install, but I think it is the same solution as proposed for WordPress above.

    Thanks for that. It seems to have solved the same problem I had. That issue should have been addressed loud and clear by Adobe in the first place. I wonder if there are any other "basic" functions of WP that would "break" Dreamweaver? Thank God for the community.

    Thanks Michael,

     

    This had frustrated me for quite some time (as in most Wordpress sites I change the Permalink structure to 'Post Name') It's also still an issue in CS6 and in the trial edition of Dreamweaver CC.

    Huh?

    Normally you GET files from remote server and edit Locally.

    When creating a server there is an option to check both testing and remote.   Instead of trying to understand what Im explaining it would be great if someone could just explain how to get dynamicaly related files for a remote server.  Im editing live sites on the internet. I donot use a local server like mamp.   I always get an error when trying to get dynamic related files for remote servers.
