  For local development we have moved our recommendation from IIS to wamp or xamp simply because it is easier to install either of those than to install IIS 7, then configure it for PHP and MySQL.

The installation process from Wamp or xampp is much quicker and easier.

it is not necessary to have a local testing server, but is can span development time up.

If you do not want to install a local testing server, you can simply upload the power store files to the remote host after configuring the WA_Globals.php file and the database connection file.

the .sql script that comes with power store will not create a database, but will create tables in a database that exists on your mySQL server, you can either create a new database for the PowerStore tables, or use your existing one.

Where yo want to set power store up on multiple domains, you just need to upload to each domain, make sure that the WA_Globals.php file and the database connections file are set properly with the information on that domain.  

Hi Jason, thanks for the reply. It helps to know that for now, I can do some uploads without the testing server, and then speed up my process in a couple weeks when I can do more digging and learning.

The only thing I am not clear on with your reply is on the multiple sites. When I downloaded PowerStore, it came with a long list of folders and files. Would the proper process be to just create a "store" folder in the existing site, copy the powerstore files (all) into that folder, then follow the modifications and configurations from there? Or just certain files?

Then for the next site, do the same...create a "store" file, copy all of the powerstore files into it, etc.

I'm kind of guessing that is how it works, but didn't want to mess anything up if I did that. OR, is powerstore an "extension" for dreamweaver that I should have copied into my dreamweaver program file and that I use from within dreamweaver?
