PS3 Testserver install

PS3 Testserver install

I thought it was about time to have a go at powerstore3. I have a test server with xmapp which has worked quite well and have tested a few sites with powerCMS so I know it works. I created a folder called 'store' and uploaded the files to this folder. The instructions in the readme file say to browse to this folder which I did and it gives me a directory list. In there is the folder called 'install' and the file index.pho which got me to the setup wizard. This is where it starts to go wrong. When I click on get started the following appears in my browser. The top of the screen has the following lines. After that it gives the results of the diagnostic reading which says nothing. It does not give a check or an x just the information you can see below. It looks like it is not even running the check just listing the data. Obviously I'm doing something wrong, any hints?

Thanks

It doesn't look like PHP is running on your server and it is interpreting the file as HTML code. That is why the code is being outputted to the browser like that.

Not sure why it's doing that but I created a site in Dreamweaver, opened the index.php file, clicked on preview in browser and it brought up the configuration wizard. I ran through the process and it works. Not sure why I have to go through dreamweaver to get the store. The store folder is in the htdocs folder in the xampp folder. Must be something I missed in setup of xampp. Any ideas?

Thanks

Okay I got it

Alright I figured it out, instead of going through localhost I was trying to go directly to the file. This is fine now,

However I see this error:

Warning: date() [function.date]: It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier. We selected 'America/New_York' for '-5.0/no DST' instead in C:\xampp\htdocs\Store\WA_Universal_Email\mail_PHP.php on line 175

Is this a function of using a test server that will go away when uploaded or is there a configuration setting I have to do for this?

Thanks

That warning will likely go away on your live server yes. If you want to fix it, you can edit the php.ini and put in a value for the timezone. It should be under the date section and called timezone. Set the value to America/New_York.
