Recommended Posts

hi , i am new to the Os-commence software :blush: .... i had tried the online demostration of the software. but now i had downloaded the .zip file found on the website. my question is that .. i only see files that are filed with codings there was one install file but that was un-known file extension. is there anyway i can install the software into my computer and test it out? or the .zip file is only avaliable for developers to do the coding and the only demo is the demo found online?? :huh: :blink: :D

You need to install it onto a webserver. Once it's there, you can simply execute install/index.php and it will run the install scripts for you (you should have a mysql database setup first).

 

You can run it locally if you have a php/mysql enabled webserver on your local computer. If you don't have this, do a google search for something like XAMPP which is a prebuilt, ready to run apache, mysql, php implementation. It's great for testing things like this (there are many others, I just know this one works).

i suggest starting with xampp to learn how to use that first. get to know what it does.

in the knowledge base osCommerce has certain requirements which have to be in place prior to installation, which apache, mysql and php fall into that category.

then follow the installation procedures.

error message: Warning Warning: I am able to write to the configuration file: D:/Program Files/ApacheFriends/xampp/htdocs/catalog/includes/configure.php. This is a potential security risk - please set the right user permissions on this file

 

i have already followed the instruction using the windows file setting permission for everyone i have read & execute and read permission allowed and the write to be deny.. but i left the modified untouch.. but i still have that error can anyone tell me why?
