So i purchased the manual. Didn't know that i would have to download something like xampp. thought i would just download zencart and it would have everything there for me.
Manual says on page 33 to download xampp version 1.4.16 from october 2005. is that the version i should download or should i download the newest version? also if i do download the new version, will the manual i purchased still be relevant? and if i download the newest version, will i have to go back and install the patch to fix the apparent PHP compatibility problem mentioned in many posts?
i read all the posts, but none of the posts conclusively say what version of xampp to use. just want to make sure i do it correctly from the start.
last, is there anyone in the Dallas/fort worth area that has done a setup on local host before? maybe would want to make some extra coin.
