    Default fresh install blank localhost/phpmyadmin

    hi,

    I am new to the whole cart system and ofcourse php, apache & mysql ... I have some experiences with html and css since I've spent some time on Dreamweaver to create my ecommerce site. I want to put a good functional cart on my website and found oscmax.

    I gave it a go today and start to experience a number of problems.
    WindowsXP
    follow installation guide wiki for 2.0.25
    installed wampserver 2.0
    guide says I should get 2 different icons on my task screen, but I only see 1



    I've changed the file names (I don't know even know if I should):
    catalog/.htaccess.new→catalog/.htaccess
    catalog/includes/configure.php.new→catalog/includes/configure.php
    catalog/admin/includes/configure.php.new→catalog/admin/includes/configure.php

    change permission to 777 ? how to do that on WindowsXP?

    and when I press phpMyAdmin on the icon, got a blank page from Firefox on address localhost/phpmyadmin

    please I want to get started...heard it's a good piece of app, can't imagine it's that hard to even begin with. Any help is appreciated!

    update: I can get into phpMyAdmin after restarting my pc, but other question remain, if someone can clear those for me, thanks!

    If your level of technical/user experience is that low in XP, then I suggest that you get a hold of a free hosting account and install 'Max there.
    That way you don't have to be concerned about setting up a server environment.

    Let me Google that for you (in the words of Michael_S)
    windows permissions - Google Search

    I know how to change permission in XP but 777? I guess that's a linux environment expression which I don't get it. And I have a hosting server with my ISP.
