    Site definition error

    jcurtis66 Community Member

      I've setup a test server environment using xampp.  I downloaded the existing site I want to work with.  It's made up of PHP scripts, html and some text files, no database connections.  If I put all the files in the htdocs directory the site runs fine, when viewed through a browser.  However when I define this location in Dreamweaver I always get the error "Dynamically-related files could not be resolved because the site definition is not correct for this server."

       

      Site name:  testsite

      Local Site Folder: C:\xampp\htdocs

       

      Server name: testserver

      connect using: Local/Network

      Server folder: C:\xampp\htdocs\

      Web URL: http://localhost

       

      Advanced

       

      Server Model PHP MySQL

       

      I've tried many setups, including a sub directory in htdocs, but then the site does not run, and I still get the same Dreamweaver error about incorrect site definition.  I can create other test sites, create simple PHP scirpts, and they work no errors.

       

      In the present setup the site runs, so why do I keep getting the same error message in Dreamweaver?
