Setting Up Dreamweaver for Dynamic Web Sites

Now that your head is spinning, and you’re considering some noble career alternative like farmer, firefighter, or carpenter, it’s time to set up Dreamweaver to work with an application server and database.

There are several different ways to go about it. One involves using what Dreamweaver calls a testing server. Remember how you can create a Web site on your own computer (the local site) before posting it online for all to see (the remote site) ? Here, the concept is similar. When building Web applications, it’s again a good idea to keep all the “work in progress” pages on your own computer. After all, you don’t want to fill up an active online database with test data, or put half-finished product pages on the Internet. But because dynamic Web sites require an application server and database, you can create a testing server for storing and previewing dynamic pages in progress: a real Web server, application server, and database running on your computer.
