PHP Local Login Problems - Macromedia Dreamweaver

Trying to log in to PHP local server on Mac OS X. I keep getting an error message about the testing server. What exactly do I put into the testing server paths? Why are the local folder and the testing server different? Where is the testing server? Other MYSQL database accessing programs are having no trouble connecting ie Navigat etc they ask for a port which is 3306 that is the only difference I see. Why is Dreamweaver having trouble? Please advise. dbrhett...

    If you are testing locally on a OS X.2.6 then all your doents should be in the Sites folder under your user folder. The testing folder will be the same folder and the URL prefix will be [url]http://yourip/~username[/url] . Honestly it's just as easy to leave it blank and keep a browser window open in the background and switch to the browser window and type in the address and not deal with the testing server information it asks for because it doesn't always work 100% as it should. Also be aware port 80 will need to be open for you to view the paegs.

    Port # 80 is the default for ur web server, port # 3306 is for MySQL. When most people say open this port and that generally means, if you have a firewall, then make sure that the requests are allowed through your firewall and such. If you have apache or other web server installed, you already have port#80 accessible through your local computer.
    Hope this clears things up.

    On OS 10.2.6 does Apache automatically start up or do you have to start up file sharing in the system preferences.

    You will have to manually start it up the first time you want to use it. After that, unless you manually turn it off, I have found that it will then continue to boot up with the OS.
