    URGENT: Database Difficulties

    Springbok_yfc
      Hi there

      No too long ago I purchased Dreamweaver 8 and I am currently designing a website for an organisation but I am having diffculties setting up the Access Database..I have no problem with connecting Dreamweaver 8 to the database. So in order to get a solution to my difficulties I have been doing alot of tutorials that I got from online, but for some reason after I have done everything the tutorials asked of me and its time to preview the live data..a pop up message appears saying the Page cannot be displayed. Is this a glitch within Dreamweaver 8 itself? And if so will the updates be able to fix this problems? What I would really like to do is store news etc...in a database and then have the database shown on the website as a news archive. Can anyone please help me with this?

      Kind Regards
      Heinrich

          Sounds like you need a server to go between DW and the access database
          try cold fusion

            OK - what web server are you using locally? Is you server configured
            properly? Is your database configured, and accessable?

            Have you tried in a browser using http://localhost:port/mywebsite/etc to see
            if you can view it there, instead of within Dreamweaver?

              Let's start at the top. What is your Operating System? What do you see
              when you point your browser at '' http://localhost''?

                  Check to make sure that IIS has started properly. Have you rebooted since
                  this happened?
