Newbie - Win XP Install


Recommended Posts

I have a Win XP Pro Box with IIS installed / PHP and MySQL v3.23.55


I have downloaded the windows version of osCommerce and copied the admin folder to the inetpub/wwwroot folder of IIS.


When I try and load the install file from within IIS management console nothing happens


If I open the install file from with the folder I see that I need to change some variables in the application files in the includes folder.


IIS is installed at c:Inetpub

PHP is installed at c:PHP

MySQL is installed at c:mysql


Do I need to insert the name of my computer into any of the variables?


I have no idea of what variables I need to change and to what, if someone could be so kind as to help with this it would be greatly appreciated.
