is mysql installed on your local machine or on a different server? Do
you work with root or with a newly created user?
If mysql is not installed on your local machine, you have to grant
access from other machines to your database. Here's an example (with a
newly created user).
your work machine's IP: 192.168.0.25
your username: will
open a mysql shell (with root/superuser privileges) and type:
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON *.* TO 'will'@'192.168.0.25' IDENTIFIED BY
UPDATE user SET password = OLD_PASSWORD('mysecretpassword') WHERE user =
'will' AND host = '192.168.0.25';
if your database runs on the same system as Dreamweaver, replace
192.168.0.25 with localhost and it should (hopefully) work.
