    DW8 db connection error

    Myagi
      I recently had a hard drive crash and had to reinstall my DW8, Now, even with the latest versions of Apache, PHP and MySQL, DW will not recognize my localhost connection. Every time I try to test the connection I get one of 2 popup error messages ...

      An unexpected error has occured, or

      HTTP Error Code 404 File Not Found. Here are some possibble reasons for the problem:
      1) There is no testing server running on the server machine
      2) The testing server specified for this site does not map to the " http://localhost/_mmServerScripts/MMHTTPDB.php URL"

      DW8 will not allow me to create record sets because it does not see the db connection, but after entering the code by hand, I can preview my pages in IE or Firefox and all the dynamic content works.

      This is extremely frustrating. I have been working on this for 2 days. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
