Powerstore 3 building locally

Is it possible to setup Power Store 3 in a local xaamp testing server for use with Dreamweaver, before uploading to ISP ?

As I dont have control over the domain name yet which is currently being used by the owner for another site.

I want to build the site offline and then upload it, is this possible ?

if so what are the requirements.
I do have MySql and Apache running.
or any tutorials on this subject.

I have loaded XAMPP and have MYSQL and Apache running.

However when I try to do the Powerstore install I dont know what to input into the STEP 2 of the installation wizard for the database info.Or were this info should come from.

I have tried numerous perumutations but get this error :

Database Information* denotes required field
ERROR: Could not connect to the MySQL database. Please verify the server, username, and password are correct.

Would appreciate anybodys help

Thank You Robert

There are no different steps for getting PowerStore up and running on a live or local server.

So you have MySQL running locally? How do you connect to your MySQL server for administering it? You will need to use the same set of credentials to setup the PowerStore here.

The error returned it telling you that it could not connect, so it might be the hostname is not correct or that the username password combo are not good. If you can connect locally to the db then the same values will work in here.

Here are some guides we have for this type of setup:
