If you didn't create a database, there is none :)

 

What do you use for testing (webserver)?

You need Mysql and phpmyadmin.

 

I suggest going to www.easyphp.org and downloading the latest version (has apache, php, mysql and phpmyadmin)

 

if you don't have any experience with this it's going to be tough though

thanks for your reply.

 

Actually I had install Appserv and the website is almost finished.

 

I got a testing server in my computer and the website is working fine.

 

I downloaded a contribution for product listing but I dont know how to

install the statement into the data base, here is the intruction I've got

 

 

1. DATABASE - INSERT the following MySQL statements into your database,

either from the command line or via phpMyAdmin.

 

 

INSERT INTO configuration VALUES

 

('', 'Product Listing Display Style', 'PRODUCT_LISTING_DISPLAY_STYLE', 'list', 'Choose which Style you would like use to display your products on the Product Listing Pages.<br><br>Whichever style you choose, make sure you configure the appropriate settings for the style of listing you have selected.', 8, 0, NULL, now(), '', 'tep_cfg_select_option(array(\'list\', \'columns\'),');

 

 

 

INSERT INTO configuration VALUES

 

('', 'Number of Columns for Product Listing', 'PRODUCT_LIST_COL_NUM', '3', 'Enter the number of columns you would like to display your products on the Product Listing pages.', 8, 1, NULL, now(), NULL, NULL);

 

 

 

so question1 : where is the data base? what is the path?

question2 : what is configuration value?

question3 : is phpAdmin come with the Appserv? if so, where is it? if not,

where can I get it?

 

 

thanks in advance!

1. I don't know. You installed it. You don't need to know the path. You need the name and password to work with it.

2. Configuration is a table in the DB. Values are the values that this statement adds to the configuration table.

3. look here

You need to use phpmyadmin to insert the database changes. It is pretty easy to use. Just do a search hear on the forums if you cannot figure it out.
