How to install oscommerce on windows xp?

I presume you want to set up your shop on windows xp and then upload it on a web server?

 

To set it up on your computer I would recommend you use 'phptriad' (can be downloaded from download.com) as it is very easy to use and gives you the full functionability of a webserver on your computer.

 

Hope this helps

hello johnson

thank you for helping me. i was able to install the easyphp software but i was unable to point browser to http://localhost/catalog/install and other localhost. i guess this is do to iis which i have installed on my computer. if i don't need iis how can i unstall and point the broser to correct localhost.

thank you

Ok, download 'phptriad' from download.com, then install. You will have a folder on your C: called 'apache', open apache, then open htdocs. In 'htdocs' paste catalog and admin from your oscommerce download. Then go into your start menu and into phptriad, then click on 'start apache' and then click 'mysql - d'. When you have done this open up a web browser and type - http://localhost/catalog.

 

If all goes to plan your website should be displayed.

Uninstall IIS: Start > Settings > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs > Add/Remove Windows Components. Uncheck Internet Information Services (IIS) and click next. You should be able to follow the instructions from there.

 

You may have to reinstall Apache after that to get it to work. Otoh, maybe you will just need to reboot.

 

Good luck,

Matt

hi just a quick question please.

 

If i set up a local store for test and troubleshoot on my XP box, is it then just a matter of ftp all the files to my web host?

 

thanks

Pretty much.. but you will have to change the configuration files to suit your server

When you installed oscommerce under database server did you use 127.0.0.1?

Check to make sure that your user is defined as whomever@localhost in the database. Also check to make sure that the password is correct.

 

Good luck,

what did you put in the box, when you installed that said 'database server'?

okay when i installed 'phptriad' it did not ask what database server. now since i am trying to work with iis so i will have to choose mysql as my database server.

and i have to install php on the box. if i did all of this. how can i point to oscommerce folder.

thanks

No, he was asking what you put in to osCommerce when it asked for the database server during the install. Remember, you need to have already created an empty database and a user to access it before you run the osCommerce install. Keep track of the database name, user, and password so that you can enter them when prompted.

 

Btw, Apache was working...otherwise you wouldn't have been getting the error that you did. The error you are getting implies that there is something wrong among PHP, MySQL, and osCommerce.

 

Good luck,

Matt

Hi there.

I want to know well how to put the right folders and in with order, 'cause the unzipped OsCommerce file and folders seems to be more complex as stated in you brief guide...I don't find the CATALOG/INSTALL folders to launch in the unzipped pack! I have installed EASYPHP on my XP PRO and seems all run without problem, but I have ALWAYS to uninstall IIS? Can I leave it around?

 

Thanks 1000's FC

I don't find the CATALOG/INSTALL folders to launch in the unzipped pack!
Perhaps catalog/catalog/install? Which version did you download?

I have DL the latest version, the 2.1. I find in my Unzipped directory a folder called tep-pr2.1, inside another two, one called tep_admin-pr2.1 and another called tep_catalog-pr2.1, inside each folder, others folders too....it's a little confusing, respect that I have read in this thread :-)

 

Can you give me a little light? ;-)

2.1 certainly isn't the latest version...  The current release is 2.2 MS1.

 

Good luck,

Matt

 

OK, I have downloaded 2.2 and have do the right installation. All do ok until the end where I read these error advices:

 

Warning: fopen("c:/programmi/easyphp/www/catalog/catalog/admin/includes/configure.php", "w") - No such file or directory in c:programmieasyphpwwwcatalogcataloginstalltemplatespagesinstall_5.php on line 164

 

Warning: fputs(): supplied argument is not a valid File-Handle resource in c:programmieasyphpwwwcatalogcataloginstalltemplatespagesinstall_5.php on line 165

 

Warning: fclose(): supplied argument is not a valid File-Handle resource in c:programmieasyphpwwwcatalogcataloginstalltemplatespagesinstall_5.php on line 166

 

Then I can correctly navigate OsCommerce Catalog, but have a 404 Error not found when I tried to navigate Administration page...but admin/index.php page still here! What's wrong now?? :-S
