Recommended Posts



i would like to test oscommerce on my local pc first and then install it on the server.

I have already installed php,mysql and apache on my pc and they work fine.



1.i have exracted the zip file for 2.2a version in a folder called shop

2. i typed in the browser localhost/shop/catalog and it directed me to

the following page http://localhost/shop/catalog/install/index.php

3. i typed

database server : localhost

username: test

password: ****

database name: test_db (that test_db consists of no tables, is that ok???)


in the next step i have to type the www address and the web root directory, i don't know

what i shall type there...


does anybody know what i shall type there or

are there any instructions for installing the oscommerce locally on a computer??


I would be glad if sm could help me,


thanks in advance
