403 Errors in Dreamweaver when trying to connect to a mysql database

Afternoon all,
I’ve just spent the last 3 or so hours trying to solve a particulary annoying issue in Dreamweaver CS4, I wanted to connect to the mysql server using dreamweaver so I can create some code with a little more pollish than my current “nano” work. However each time i tried to fix this I got 403 error from the server. I did some minor work on the permissions (ie 755 chmod access) but nothing worked and then tried this and hey-presto it worked.

chown www-data\: _mmServerScripts/ _mmServerScripts/*
chgrp www-data _mmServerScripts/ _mmServerScripts/*

Obviously the above is valid for my setup and may require some modification for yours but it’s a nice easy fix.
