Installation of Oscommerce on php5, apache2, mysql5 on your computer.

1. install php5

2. install apache2

3. confirm if they working together.

4. install mysql (remmber the password you insert in the installation)

5. in php.ini enable all necessary extension for mysql.php

6. in php.ini: find register_globales and register_long_arrays and turn them to ON.

7. down load Oscommerce and save.

8. copy the catalog folder to C:\Program Files\Apache Group\Apache2\htdocs\

7. open your browser and type http://localhost/catalog/install/install.php

8. where you find database server type: localhost

9. where you find user name type: root

10. where you find pasword: type the mysql password (see section 4)

11. where you find database name type any name you like.

12. persistant connection- I left it unticked

13. session storage: I ticked database to avoid probable future problems of shared server.

14. push continue to the end of the process.

15. after the installation there are few other thing to change. you can find then in documentation.pdf

Good Luck :D
