Database connection tool

Set up multiple MySQL connections in one Dreamweaver file

Dreamweaver database connection tool

Configure multiple MySQL database connections from a wizard in Dreamweaver. One connection file will be automatically generated for you, which can be published to all of your domains. The correct database will then be detected based on the domain your web visitors access. (We know; it’s genius.)

This tool was once a stand-alone extension called Dynamic Connections. Now it is integrated into our powerful Dreamweaver extension, Data Bridge.

arrow downNo more overwriting your live connection file

If you use one database connection on your local testing server and one database connection on your live server, you have probably experienced the dread that overcomes you when you realize you accidentally overwrote a connection file while FTP-ing files from one server to another, or while using Dreamweaver's GET/PUT feature. With this Dynamic MySQL Connection wizard, you'll never have to worry about overwriting your connection again. Only ONE connection file is generated with ALL the MySQL database connections you specify. You don't have to keep separate versions of this file on your testing server and live server.

This Dynamic MySQL Connection tool is also useful if you run the same site on multiple domains, but your content varies based on the database each domain uses. For example, if you develop one website in various languages, specify a different charset for your MySQL connections.

Take a look at how many charsets are supported:
