    I seem to be having major problems with getting BossCart to run.
    This my 3rd attempt and still not playing. So here is what I have done.

    1. Installed XAMPP into c:\xamp
    I amended the httpd.conf file as per the tutorial.

    2. Installed BossCart into c:\xamp\htdocs
    3. Installed the script into c:\xamp\htdocs


    Made DB name of 'products' . Table as 'tblproducts' . 1 field on for testing.

    We'll Have More Soon
    The package then goes into the installation mode
    Pre-installation Step. All OK with no apparent errors.
    Step 1. as follows:
    Host Name = localhost
    My SQL User Name = root
    My SQL password = password
    My SQL database name = products.

    Step 2.
    Site Name = site test

    Step 3. shows

    URL name = We'll Have More Soon
    Path = c:\xamp\htdocs

    Step 4. shows
    This software could not import the database.

    and now we go into a loop.. back to step 1.. etc..

    I take it the problem is with the data base.
    Does the localhost/phpmyadmin not make the database onto a folder?

    I will get this working.. Trial and error really as there are not a lot of instruction about.

    Hi, I understand your frustration, but you need to understand that I have different issues beside BossCart support. As for the other members they are not familiar with the script.

    It is not my position to tell you if this is the best package for you, it is your decision, but you need to know that setup a localhost for a non techy person is not an easy issue. Try to use these database settings durin the installation
    password:empty don't type anything here
    These were specified in the readme file of the xammp..
