Forms perform an essential function in modern websites, making it possible to gather information from users and validate that information. In this course, Adobe Certified Expert Candyce Mairs shows how to create forms to email user information and validate user data using various methods of form validation. These validation methods include client-side, server-side, and custom validation; CAPTCHA images; and Spry validation fields. You'll also see how to set up a PHP testing environment and preview PHP pages in Dreamweaver. Along the way you'll build your skills in areas like using admin consoles, commenting code, working with variables and includes, and much more.
Once you have your testing environment installed. In otherwords, MAMP on the Mac side, or XAMP on the PC side, the two are so similar. The only distinction is where those folders are located on the operating system. But those of these operate basically the same way. On the PC side inside the C drive is a folder called xampp and the Mac side, inside your applications folder is a folder called MAMP.
But inside the MAMP or xampp folder, it's identical what we do. Both MAMP and xamppfolders have an ht docs folder. And that is where our website files are going to go. So we're going to place or paste our course files inside this ht docs folder. Inside either the Mamp folder within applications on the Mac side or the Xampp folder within the C drive on the PC side. So that's all we need to do to install our course files. So we can go grab those files, and there are course files that were included with your course, and we're going to copy those into this folder. So I'll simply do a Paste of our ScubaVac, folder. This stands for Scuba Vacations, that's the name of our Scuba Touring Company, and that's the website we are going to be working in. Now within this folder there are quite a few files so we will be taking a look at building the website as we move forward, but that's all we need to do to install our course files within the web server.
It's simply copy and paste our scuba vac course file into the ht docs folder within xampp on the C drive or within MAMP in the applications folder on the Mac side so we just installed our course files now we can get started working and dreamweaver.
