    Default Issues with Vista 32/64bit and XAMPP?

    Are there any issues installing zencart with Windows Vista 32bit and/or 64bit? Would appreciate any feedback before I start my zen cart installation.

    Thanks in advance.

    Why do you want to install it on a windows system? Is it for test run only or do you plan to use it as a live server?

    Hi yellow1912,
    I purchased the manual book by Goh and try to test run it now on my pc. I used both, 32 and 64bit Vista and want to know of any issues before I start.

    It's not the issue with ZC, but rather the issue with mysql and php and apache(or IIS if you decide to use windows' server).

    For me, I usually download xampp, a package that has apache+php+mysql, just install it and you have your own server with everything ready. I don't know if it has a version for Vista yet tho.

    Regards.

    Thank you for your reply. I have installed XAMPP on my pc as instructed by the book. I do face difficulties making the Mercury Mail working. However my basic question is do I need XAMPP later when I want my zen cart to be on my web server or is this XAMPP only for me to test on my pc?

    It depends on the server you will install it on. Usually they should have everything in place already.
    PS: and most of the time it will be on Linux OS, not Windows. Windows server is just bad bad idea.

    To elaborate on what Yellow was saying ...

    No, you do not need XAMPP in order to run Zen Cart on a live webserver.
    XAMPP should only be used for testing it on your PC.

    In fact, you *can* run Zen Cart on a real webserver without ever using XAMPP at all.
