Before you strat installation you have to create an empty database in MySQL and it is the info of that database that you put in there

if you are hosting this yourself then then create a database, host name is localhost, database name is whatever you named the database, and username and password are the ones setup on your data base server.

 

if you are having someone else hosting it for you then you need to get this info from them.

I'm having trouble too. I've done this before but I guess this server is just somehow different. I try localhost and I try the domain name and it still won't install. I know I have the user name and password right as well. Any clue what could be wrong?

Have you considered asking your host? They'd know better than anyone here.

I'm a newbie too. Installed MySQL and oscommerce and couldnt' connect tom the databsae "access ddenied" read somewhere on the net that on win the root password doesn't work and to leave the password blank in the installation form. It worked, just as well this is a test installation on a spare home machine, would not like to have no security on the real thing.

OK ... I will be straight forward with you: before starting with osCommerce, I think that you will have to do some general reading about PHP and MySQL. After that you should be able to understand how you create your database and where it will be stored.

Then do some reading about osCommerce in the Wiki Documentation and in the forums! On the upper right side of the forum page there is a link to the Wiki Documentation and to the search script. Use them!! You will then find the answer to the register globals question and much more!

After having completed this learning cycle, everybody in this forum will be glad to help you fine-tune your installation ... just don't forget to use the forum's search engine before you post your question! ;)

 

Best regards,

Antonios
