First, lets test that your site is working properly.

In the powerstore site, create a new file name phpinfo.php.

add the following code:

<?php phpinfo(); ?>

then try loading that page in a browser:

this should return information about your php installation, if it does not, there is a problem with your webserver.

you find this article helpful for setting up your testing server:

When you install MySQL, a user named root will be created automatically, during the install you will need to set the password for the root user.

in the localhost.php file, set the host to localhost:
$hostname_localhost = "powerstore";

Set the user to root:
$username_localhost = "root";

and the password t what ever you set it to when installing MySQL:
$password_localhost = "<root password set during mySQL Install>";
