Join David Powers for an in-depth discussion in this video Setting the default version of PHP in Preferences, part of Dreamweaver CC New Features.
[Instructor] In this chapter, we'll take a quick look…at some important changes that have been made…to PHP support in Dreamweaver CC2017.1.…I assume you're already familiar with using Dreamweaver…to develop PHP sites…and if you're using the exercise files for this course,…that you've copied the chapter five folder…to a PHP-enabled site.…If you're new to PHP, you'll first need to install PHP…as described in David Gassner's course…installing Apache, MySQL, and PHP…in the Lynda.com or LinkedIn learning library.…
You'll also need to set up a site in Dreamweaver…with a testing server following the instructions…in this Dreamweaver help article.…The Help page also links to an article…that I wrote for Adobe…about setting up a PHP testing server in Dreamweaver CS5.…The link is down here.…Now, although this article was written way back…in the year 2000, it's still valid for Dreamweaver CC2017.1.…Alright, let's get back to Dreamweaver.…The most important change is that Dreamweaver…now has full support for PHP7.1.…
Not only that, you can specify the PHP version…
- Restricting the scope of a quick search
- Finding and replacing more selectively
