i had a more php/mysql literate friend help on my project and he has worked wonders (hand coding mostly).... BUT, he has gone away for a week or two and he has just mailed me my site as a zip file (now unzipped and sitting in my local host) and a sql dump file... how do i put them together again? i have PHPMyAdmin or an evaluation copy of Navicat and or PLEASE tell me i can do it all in Dreamweaver to help here... any ideas?
Theres no place like 127.0.0.1
ok, here i go, my background is more in CSS, HTML, PhotoShop and Dreamweaver... but i am trying to learn the ins and outs of PHP... now for the rub i am dyslexic, so please bear with me.
PHP requires a web server to read the code. phpMyAdmin and Navicat are interfaces for MySQL but you will also need MySQL installed. If you have both I would imagine the process of setting the site up should be pretty simple. Create the user that is usedin the script in your mysql databse, upload the dump file adn upload the php files to your web server and it should go.
