I'm a first-timer trying to make a dynamic website.
I have created an AWS MySQL database through my Mac OSX Terminal. The name of the database is "rundb".
I am trying to create a webpage in Dreamweaver that connects to my server and this database's table in order to create a dynamic form that users can fill out and submit.
I also have a subdomain in which I want to host this website. "runtracker.javinladish.com"
In Dreamweaver I am getting a bunch of errors when trying to make a MySQL connection, so I am figuring that my problems lie in the way I set up the site.
Here are my server settings in Dreamweaver:
Server Name: runtracker
Connect using: FTP
username: runtracker (i have set up this ftp username via my control panel on my host)
root directory: (I left it blank, but the directory I want to put all files in relation to this site would be /runtracker)
Web URL: http://runtracker.javinladish.com/
When I hit test it says that Dreamweaver connected to my web server successfully, but when I go to make a MySQL Connection I am unsure what to put for the options (connection name, mysql server, user name, password, database) in order to not get errors.
Can anyone point me in the right direction to get this sorted out?
Thanks in advance to anyone who responds.
