I am currently running Ubuntu Server 12.04.3 LTS. I use it as a local test web server here at home. I have installed PHP, PHPMyAdmin and MySQL. I can access the web server at its IP address eg. 192.168.0.51.
I am using Dreamweaver CS6 as my IDE. I have setup a new site and tested it. I receive "Dreamweaver connected to your Web server successfully"
However, my troubles begin when trying create a MySQL connection. These are the parameters that I use:
Connection name: abc
MySql Server : 192.168.0.51
User Name: root
Database: Here I can hit select to choose the database that I desire.
When doing so, I receive this error:
HTTP Error Code 403 Forbidden
I know for a fact that the MySQL credentials that I am using are correct because I have used them to access the database via a small php file written in Edit Pad Pro.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. Peter
