    an unspecified error occurred

    The_FedEx_Guy Community Member
      Hi all,
      I have the above problem with dreamweaver MX 2004.

      This was working fine before, when i tried connecting to the database.

      Now I cannot connect to anything.

      I have replayed the original files on my computer with the ones from the server, could that have messed it up? shall i restart my PC?

          Sure . restart your PC. Can't hurt. :)

          Seriously .. before anyone can help you ..
          What server model?
          What database?
          What does your connection string look like?

            Hi
            I'm using PHP with a MySQL dbase

            <?php
            # FileName="Connection_php_mysql.htm"
            # Type="MYSQL"
            # HTTP="true"
            $hostname_db = "localhost";
            $database_db = "onlinemove";
            $username_db = "username";
            $password_db = "password";
            $db = mysql_pconnect($hostname_db, $username_db, $password_db) or trigger_error(mysql_error(),E_USER_ERROR);
            ?>

            I have installed Dreamweaver 8 now and still having the same problem. And I have restarted.
            I cannot connect to any database.

                Is MySQL running? Is your web server running? Can you connect outside of
                Dreamweaver?

                  I can connect outside of Dreamweaver.

                  I replaced the files, with the backup of the old site, and then imported the edited files i was working with.

                  It is now working.

                  But abit of advice to everyone...only FTP back the files on to your PC that you want to work on not the whole thing!
