PHAkt is a server model for Macromedia Dreamweaver MX and 2004, allowing PHP generation using the same techniques as when developing ASP/JSP/ColdFusion. It is a better alternative to the PHP_MySQL server model. You don''t have to learn anything to use PHAkt, as you''ll be able to work in Dreamweaver as you''ve been in the native PHP_MySQL server model. To enable PHAkt, make sure to select PHP_ADODB as the Testing Server for your site. PHAkt MX has a lot of improvements over the original PHP_MySQL server model of Macromedia Dreamweaver MX: --Support for multiple databases in a transparent way; --User Authentication Server Behaviors; --Master/Detail Server Behaviors; --Go to Detail Page Server Behaviors; --Improved code generation (all reusable code is kept in a file; --Multiple and extensible recordset support; --IIS and Apache 2 support by using absolute redirects.
