Guest Posted August 2, 2008 Share Posted August 2, 2008 Hi Folks I am totally new to this so I am sorry if this problem has been asked before, but I really don't understand. I want to set up a shop online and I have bought a template from oscommerce which seems to be in a very old version. I am very shy about setting up the shop and want it perfect before it goes live, so I want to work on it on my computer only. So yesterday I loaded Wamp5 on to my system and then tried to install the template I bought. The first problem I found was that I can not find any installation instruction old enough for my template's version, It doesn't even have a catalog directory! I have fiddled around and gone to lots of forums, including this one and have now got WAMP5 running after about 3 reinstalls. Thanks for the advise about Port 80 being used etc. I have found Mathew Phillips way to create a database as I think I need to have one before I try installing my template. Using this database I then go to http://localhost/15003/install/install.php and complete the first 2 pages but when it comes to the next screen all I get is Access denied for user 'testuser'@'localhost' to database 'simple'. I am now tearing my hair out and I still have a horrible feeling that I shall have to update the version when it finally work ...... Please, please someone be kind and patient and give me a how to do it in a step by step version. Senachal Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
