Hmm... I need to find out myself. I don't know what is the right answer to your question. I'll do some Googling and get back to you if I find an decent answer. You should email the people at iContact as they probably could assist you..
Sorry it is set to localhost. That's what happens when you try to do a few things at once...
Go to a command line and enter the following:.
What is the result?..
In phpmyadmin I clicked on SQL and then copied and pasted that in. I got this.
#1064 - You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near 'mysql user=root' at line 1..
That's because I didn't tell you to use phpMyAdmin. I told you to go to a command line. THAT IS A WINDOWS COMMAND LINE..
Oops sorry. I get "my sq"l doesn't recognise it [or mysql isn't recognised] as an internal or external command, program or archive or executable somethings. (Spanish computer so that's a rough translation)..
That tells me that mySQL is not installed on your computer, or the path to it is not included in the system path...
Well that sounds like a 2 bottle of red wine problem. Think I'll have to uninstall tomorrow and reinstall from the beginning following the instrucitons carefully..
The annoying thing is I've followedc the same instructions twice before on 2 different computers...
And I know squat about easy php so I may be way off base. I'm not even sure that easy php installs mySQL in the conventional manner so it may not provide the command line tools..
But then, I have NEVER suggested to anyone that they install on a local pc, even for testing. Just too much is different...
I live in the south of spain where the internet is up and down more often than a wh***s drawers! A heavy cloud, bad weather, power outage, or any other reason and it's down. Its been down for a few days in the past which is so frustrating. For fiddling with the STS templates it's quicker to test locally. Plus I can still work on it as long as I have power..
All I know about easyphp is that it's recommended on a set of how to test locally instructions I found in the contributions. Guess I should have a scout around for another alternative and see if thats the problem, or if it is something I'm doing...
