Yes - for Windows you can install a package such as PHPdev or EasyPHP - these will install Apache, MySQL, PHP and PPHPmyAdmin which you can install osCommerce on. You can browse/admin the store locally in your web browser.


I have not tried it, but you should be able to test your payment gateway so long as you are online.


Your files and a dump of your database can be uploaded to your live server - with a little reconfiguration you can have your store up and running :)

We use Xampp (www.xampp.de) to create the local environment and then a new OSC installation.


When then sync to the online version using Beyond Compare ignoring the two configure.php which are the only files that need to change between the online/offline versions.


The payment gateways appear to work on both versions but the Sendmail can't
