Installing PrestaShop on Windows PC
A friend recently ask me on this. I still remember, those days in order to setup a php hosting up on windows, there are plenty of configuration to do for both the apache and php to work together. Not to mention, that have not include getting up the MySQL. But things are getting more friendly now. I thought there is 2 in 1 installer file which configures both php and apache in a PC but I was wrong. There is already 3 in 1, or 4 in 1 (for certain website like joomla has a package which comes bundled together), now! What’s more to ask for?
But installing it is one thing, configuration is next. Back to the topic, my friend was asking on ways to install PrestaShop and get it working on his windows PC. So, as usual, Google’d it and lead me to #techieTips_. It uses the WAMP, that bundles 3 in 1 software on one installation setup. So that ease much of the work. The author of that site has even posted screen capture step by step, with instructions and details of what and how you should configure, following it leads to getting PrestaShop running!
P/S: The posted guide does not include the SMTP setup on windows. If you need SMTP installation, you could head over to Microsoft site or post it here and see if I can help.
