Problem getting PS3 and XAMPP working

I must admit, as much as the powerstore3 seems like a good upgrade, I have really struggled to make any headway with it. As I previously mentioned, I was using it with the default Mac OSX version of PHP which is lacking in facilities, so I erased my hard drive and then installed xampp for Mac. After a little direction from 'office guy' I have found it to be quite straight forward, to get to grips with... however...

Since I installed the site, I have installed it another six times and I am beginning to get a tad annoyed at having to redo it yet again. I have realised that when I had the database installed on my old system with the inadequate PHP, some paths were written into the database that no longer work, especially the css menus.

What's happening with me is that I test the site after an installation, and it works fine. I then import the PS3 database that I had before I erased my drive, and the site breaks at the point of reading the css menu. Why?

It seems that office guy's suggestion that the install writes paths relevant to the drive it is being installed upon is correct, which brings me to exactly the same questions that dennis372614 has. What do I do in order to make changes to pages, associated files such as the ecart or universal email and also the database? If I make these changes locally, does this mean that I can't upload my local changes and expect them to work?

As intimated, what I think is needed is some idea of what files are unique to the directory and therefore shouldn't be changed in anyway so that I don't go and break the site yet again!

Thanks.
