    Problem setting up Dreamweaver Win7

    johnhardy10 Level 1

      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

          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

           

          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)?

            Thanks so much Murray for such a quick answer.

             

             

             

            Re

             

            Site1 = D:/Mywebsites/Site1

             

            Site2 = D:/Mywebsites/Site1/Site2

             

             

             

            I am positive my structure is

             

            Site1 = D:/Mywebsites/Site1

             

            Site2 = D:/Mywebsites/Site2

             

            Yes Of course index.htm soes not need IIS in fact if I open

             

            D:/Mywebsites/Site1/index.htm in a browser it shows perfectly in

             

            local root folder and in the testing server.

             

            However is I open in DWcs3 I get as shown in the image attached.

             

             

             

            As a note I have been using DW for many years and have enjoyed you comments

            and articles greatly, so am fairly experienced in the requirements. Having

            said that I am not above making a boo boo!

             

             

             

            Regards

              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?

                Hello Murray

                 

                I was going to send images previously but I am now having some problems with

                Fireworks Tools. The first row does not seem to be working.

                 

                I was going to combine the images  but cannot. This is new too!

                  Hello Murray

                   

                  I expect you have already "twigged " my mistake on the URL Prefix I had

                  omitted to enter the directory name. As soon as this was entered the

                  problems went away.

                   

                   

                   

                  Thanks for your time.

                   

                  Regards

                   

                   

                   

                  John
