Not sure what you mean with "why can't I make a link to the authentication page as if it were a different project".
Once you create a project in Dreamweaver it is of a certain type like ASP or PHP.
When you create a connection, a type specific connection is stored in a separate include file. This include file can only be used in other pages of the same type. So, you cannot create a connection to an Access database in ASP and use it in a PHP. Likewise, a connection to MySQL cannot be used in PHP.

Did you create your connection in PHP? If so, is the web server on the same machine as Dreamweaver? That is, are you using the localhost for PHP and the database?
