This morning, I’m working on installing open source ecommerce packages on my Windows Server 2008 box. This is mainly for experimental and learning purposes.
My first step was to read through the most current PrestaShop User Guide. The most current stable version as of this writing is PrestaShop v.1.3.5. PrestaShop uses a MySql Database, so my first task is to install the current release of MySql (5.5.8) on my Windows 2008 server.
Since I’m not currently using MySql on a daily basis, I also made sure all of my workstation components (i.e. workbench, connector, etc.) are also up to date.
