    Default How do I install Zen Cart on XAMPP?

    I got xampp installed and typing in http://127.0.0.1 produces the address http://127.0.0.1/xampp All the navigation inks on that page work.

    Now I want to install zen-cart, and all I get is 404 errors. I tried to place the zen cat folder on c: drive, and also on the xampp folder, and third try ... the /htdocs folder.

    How do you find the zc_install on a local machine?????

    Win XP SP3
    Zen 1.38a
    XAMPP 1.7.0.1 (MySQL 5.1.30)(MyPHP 5.2.8)

    Thanks in advance

    copy your downloaded and extracted files to /xampp/htdocs/zen/

    start your browser, go to http://localhost/phpmyadmin

    make a database call it what ever you want.

    then direct your browser to http://localhost/zen/

    and follow the instructions for the automated install.


    PS don't forget to turn on cURL by changing the php.ini in /xampp/php/php.ini, all you have to do is to delete the ; in front of the cURL extention.

    OK, got that far.. and am able to get to the ZEN install screen on my local host...

    but then on this page:

    http://localhost/zen/zcinstall77/ind...n_page=inspect

    I get several errors..

    Access denied for user 'encoreep_zc1'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

    CURL not compiled into PHP - notify server administrator

    /admin/includes/configure.php does not exist

    sooo, I am stuck. I DID take the ; out of php.ini in /xampp/php/php.ini by the way.

    Suggestions? Help??

    As you are only using for development forge on as things like curl are for secure transactions etc.../.
    You might need to rename dist-configure.php to configure.php

    Yes, just for development.

    Where might I find "dist-configure.php"

    In my XAMPP folder I'm sure.. but there are a lot of other folders in there... none of which seem anything like that.

    Closed everything and restarted Apache and MySql and now only get two errors.. vs. four

    Access denied for user 'encoreep_zc1'@'localhost' (using password: YES)

    /admin/includes/configure.php does not exist

    Part of the problem (all of the problem) may be that I have not copied my database from the online server to the PC.. cause I don't know how to

    When you updated the php.ini you need to restart xampp. I had the same problem. No matter how many times you refresh the page or try to reinstall.
