I am new to os Commerce but I installed it on my PC and it worked.

First download the XAMPP and installe it. Then you have to start it

and press start buttons on all the modules. Then go to your web browser

and type http://localhost/xampp/

 

Select your language. After that you have to make a database.

Name of database - oscommerce (any name is OK)

Host server - localhost

user - xxxxxxxx

password -xxxxxxx

 

After that check under Previlages, your user name is there and you

have full Previlages.

 

Now copy the oscommerce Catalog folder into the htdocs folder inside the XAMMPP.

Then go to browser and type:

 

htt://xampp/htdocs/oscommerce

 

Then it will run the oscommerce software and use your user name and password to log in to the

admin area.

 

Hope this is ok if not inform again.

Hi there,

 

I'm trying to run my site locally. I have a running website but all this time I've been doing changes and tests live on the server because I'm not sure how to test locally. I know it's not good but I tried it last time but couldn't get it to work..

 

Anyways, I downloaded XAMPP and I tried to import my existing database (it's in the text file format with .sql extension) via phpMyAdmin but I got this error: #1046 - No database selected.

 

How do I import my database properly to the localhost?

 

Thanks heaps.

Anyways, I downloaded XAMPP and I tried to import my existing database (it's in the text file format with .sql extension) via phpMyAdmin but I got this error: #1046 - No database selected.

 

that error is showing because you have to create the database first in mysqlphp XAMPP and use the same name and password while installing the template locally.

 

remember the name and Password like for example NAME: ACEdatabase, PW: xyz

 

First type on local host for example

 

http://localhost/osc/install/install.php
