power store setting up Dev

power store setting up Dev

Hi. I purchased PowerStore.

I need some best-practices advice on the set-up.
I' want to set-up the store on my local test server first. Test the site before putting it on the live server.
Can I set up the store on my local server and then upload (FTP) up the files to the live server when I'm ready to go live?
Will I need to run the installation wizard again after the site is live to update the server settings?

a little more info:
I have a test server set up on my computer along with a sql database.
I'm running through the powerstore install. I entered my local server info for the server information.
The installation wizard says "After continuing to the admin, please delete the install folder."
Since I'm only setting this up on my dev/local server should I remove the install folder or will I need it later when I go to install on the Live server?

The help materials mention that Powerstore allows you to install it on a live and local/test server. But I'm unclear on the process of setting up the test site first and then publishing the files to a live server.

Thanks for your help,
Danielle

yes, you can install Power Store on your local server, then use FTP to upload it.

You will not need to re run the power store install when you upload it to the remote server, you will need to edit the database connection file to use the details for connecting to the remote database. you will also need to use PHPMyAdmin to export the power store database tables then import them to the database on the remote server.

I recommend setting up power store in subdirectory of your local testing server:
store


and uploading it to the same subdirectory on your live site:
store
