Thany you for your response.
Yes i did read that pdf and everything is fine until i have to insert the new local checkout from the server behaviors ecart menu.
Then i get an error.
Since i made the original post on this forum i have uploaded the files to my live server
and set up the powerstore with the payment gateway set to none. I have also downloaded
the newly configured powerstore files and folders to my local site in dreamweaver.
I have not tried to import the MySQL Database so that i will have a working version on my
local testing server. Im hoping i don't need to. Although, it would be convenient if it can be done. I did not install cURL though.
Anyway, Most Importantly, I have also discovered that my web hosting is on a shared server
so it turns out that i will not be able to process credit card payments anyway.
So i updated my account to a dedicated server but that will not happen until tomorrow.
I also need to set up the FirstData API SSL Certificate that is included with the gateway.
Not quite sure how im going to set it all up but I do appreciate your assistance. Thank you.
Do you have PowerStore with FirstData?
