Sample text

The following screenshot shows the type of structure you should consider creating for the project. Remember that your active Dev folder should be in a folder that the Apache server has access to, so that it can serve pages for you to test as you go (don't worry if you are unsure about how to do this—it will all be made clear once we begin developing): If there are going to be several people working on your site, then version control becomes even more important because it is often easy for one person to alter files that are not being worked on by others, or worse for someone to alter files that other people are not expecting to be altered.

Under normal circumstances, a huge chunk of time would be devoted to designing the business logic (the code that drives the website) and the database (the part of the application that retains all the information needed to keep things running). In our case though, all of this is taken off our hands by osCommerce, so we are free to think about what to put on the site instead of having to worry about how to actually make the site. With the specification in hand, we have taken a large step towards the goal that we laid out earlier.

After all, my program is still not working! Well, the reason is this: in order for there to be an access denied message, PHP, Apache, and MySQL must all have communicated together in order to attempt to gain access to the database. This is great news, because it means the installation and setup have worked, even if this particular program has not. In order to solve this type of problem, you need to take a look at the line of code that reads: $conn = mysql_connect("localhost", "ocommerce", "password"); Make sure that the username and password are precisely those which you gave when you set up a new user for MySQL.
