Is it possible to preview your oscommerce template & modifications without uploading? Like running a virtual server on your own pc? If so...HOW?

if at first you do succeed...try not to look surprised!

You're almost spot on.

You need to create a web server on your PC.

 

WAMP is a free server that can be loaded onto your PC for testing PHP websites (like osC).

 

You will also need mySQL on your PC as teh database.

 

When you migrate to a "real" web server, you will need to change the configure.php files to reflect the datbase changes.

A bit lost now. Got as far as installing, but as I'm a tech phobe I haven't a clue what to do next. Do I need to install the apache, mySQL & filezilla modules? Then what else?

Once that is done where do I actually install to?

OK, about an hour (or more) & much less hair later:

Me again! Sorry! This is probably a stupid question. but once I have xampp set up, where do I save the oscome files to so i can run the instal? Do i need to set up any database or will the instal do that for me?
