All I want to do basically, is run my site and its php scripts locally, on my machine. My actual host where my site is live, uses Linux, and I have a MySQL control panel there, but don't know how to use it. HELP! :)
Thank you, anyone with input.
I am going to continue this thread back in the "Server side scripting" Department, as it oughta be more on topic over there from here on, because now that the testing server seems to be functioning, I am at the meat of my current issue: Getting the form-to-email sending script to work while NOT using the Mail() function (doing my own SMTP, or so Im told).
P.S. - for anyone else trying to set up this local testing server in Dreamweaver-8 using Apache on their local WinXP machine, the site root directory is inside the Apache Installation Directory and is something like: :"Drive:\Program Files\Apache Software Foundation\Apache 2.2\htdocs" and where everything after the "drive:\" is where your Apache is installed on your HD. The connection method is "local/network" and the URL prefix is "http://localhost/". (This might seem pretty basic, but the Documentation with Apache is pretty thin, and the Dreamweaver documentation spends NO time at all on the various testing servers & configurations one might be using)
