Q: While following along with the chapter “Creating a login form,” an error message appears when attempting to preview the page in a browser: “To preview pages containing server side code you need a testing server. Would you like to specify one now?" How do I solve this problem?
A: For help on this topic, review Chapter 4, which describes how to configure a Dreamweaver site to use the application server with ColdFusion. However, if you're using PHP, review the "Defining a Site with PHP and MySQL" chapter and also the "Selecting an application sever" movie in the Dreamweaver CS4 Dynamic Development course.
