Hello Everyone,

Can anyone tell me or point me in the direction that can explain to me how I could install oscommerce locally on my pc. I would like to set it up locally before publishing it with a hosting company, I would also like to know what would be the best software to edit the look and color of the oscommerce template.

Any help would be great.

Thanks :lol:

Look at LAMP or WAMP or Triad (search this site or use GOOGLE) package for loading an easy package that loads Apache/MySQL/PHP(and some have phpMyADMIN - that is mentioned and used offten with OSC)

Basically - make your PC a webhost (ie: http://localhost or also called http://127.0.0.1).

Install OSC as normal. - If you have problem with Windows then search this forums for "IUSR" on properly setting up WINDOWS SECURITY on folder/files.

Good Luck

Here's a link to the php/mysql/apache downloads, there is complete easy to follow instructions there. This is how I did it, with NO prior osc experience! I used the install instructions that came with my original bare bones version of osc (before I found max!)
