Hi There

Please could somone help me.

I recently installed XAMPP onto my computer, so I have mysql 5.0.18, and php 5.1.1.

XAMPP was loaded to C:\Program Files\xampp. Everything went OK with the installation and when i point my browser to http://localhost/xampp/index.php I get the welcome page thats tells me "Congratulations:
You successfully installed XAMPP on this system!"

I then built a small database called "tester" and put in a table named "countries". The database was saved in the location
C:\Program Files\xampp\mysql\data\tester (I didnt choose this it just appeared there together with other sample databases supplied with XAMPP)

My problem is that try as I might I cannot figure out what to put into the site definition for "tester". I have tried allsorts.

Can someone please tell me what I need to complete in Local info , Remote info and Testing server

Many thanks.

Local info is...well, just browse to the location of the site on your hard drive

remote info is whatever your ftp details will be on your server, or Local network-again browse.

Testing server should be PHP mysql

I think...If i have understood your question
