    Again: short, clear, efficient explanations.

    In one word: Perfect !

    Congratulations again !

  2. omg! i don’t know how.. will some 1 show me how 2 get this page saved inside my ipod so my brother can take a look at it?

  3. I believe I have successfully installed Wampserver, however I am not sure the following instructions are sufficient to detail how exactly I am supposed to use it to do all the things I currently do with my live website, for example, use mystore/cpanel to access File manager to manage my store files and PHPMyadmin to manage my databases and use mystore/admin to manage my categories and products.
    I can’t seem to locate any other guide on your site that addresses these issues.

    I have reproduced the text from this guide below and embedded my comments/questions in quotes.

    Setup
    To demonstrate this setup Basic guide for WAMP, we use the names Project1 and Website2. Remember, these are just example names and you should replace them with your desire names. By default, the document root of WAMP is C:/wamp/www and we will create 2 folders project1 and website2 in the document root as follows:

    C:/wamp/www/project1

    C:/wamp/www/website2

    “Could you explain why you need project1 and website2 and what they are used for? Would suggest that you provide actual examples for each.

    Currently, I have D:/wamp/www/mystore for C:/wamp/www/project1
    and D:/wamp/www/mystore.com for C:/wamp/www/website2

    Have I done this part correctly?”

    Access
    For example, you’ve already created file index.php in folder project1 and file index.html in folder website2, you will access your websites as follows:

    “When was I supposed to have done this? After installing wampserver I have only an index.php and testmysql.php file in my D:/wamp/www folder. Am I supposed to copy the index. php file to “project1″?

    “Where do I get the index.html folder from?”

    http://localhost/project1

    http://localhost/website2

    In case you do not like to have the index file or want to access different files, you have to include the filename in the URL; for example, you have file check.php in folder project1 and file test.html in folder website2, you will access them as follows:

    http://localhost/project1/check.php

    http://localhost/website2/test.html

    If you are new to PHP and MySQL and would like to have some simple scripts to test your WAMP server, please check the Codes menu ;-)

    “How do I access the Codes menu?”

    I would sincerely appreciate your help.

    I find your other guides very informative and helpful, but unless I am missing something, I think some improvement could be done to help the novice user actually begin using wampserver upon successful installation.

      We’ve already mentioned in the guide that we use those names as examples and you should change the name as suited

      “When was I supposed to have done this? After installing wampserver I have only an index.php and testmysql.php file in my D:/wamp/www folder. Am I supposed to copy the index. php file to “project1″?

      Here, we only provide some basic guides for new Wamp users but in order to code some basic scripts, you should google for some free php ebook or you can start with website
      http://www.w3schools.com
      html beginners

      For example, you can copy the code below and name the file index.html

      <html>
      <body>
      <h1>My First Heading</h1>
      <p>My first paragraph.</p>
      </body>
      </html>

      Or copy the code below and name it index.php


      <?php
      echo "My first php";
      ?>
