A.2. Installing the Winestore Examples

The winestore example PHP scripts are available from the author's web site, http://www.webdatabasebook.com. To install the example scripts that are presented in Chapter 4 to Chapter 10, perform the following steps.

  1. Download the file http://www.webdatabasebook.com/wda.tar.gz into the /tmp directory

  2. Log in as the root user, make a directory for the file below the document root of the Apache installation, and copy the file to that location:

    % mkdir /usr/local/apache/htdocs/wda
    % cp /tmp/wda.tar.gz /usr/local/apache/htdocs/wda
  3. Change directory to the new location and install the files:

    % cd /usr/local/apache/htdocs/wda
    % gzip -d wda.tar.gz
    % tar xvf wda.tar
  4. Edit the file db.inc and modify the first two lines so that the password and username match those selected in the previous section Section A.1.2. Save the file and exit the editor.

  5. Load the book homepage by requesting the URL: http://localhost/wda/.

Many of the examples run only if the winestore database has been loaded into the MySQL DBMS by following the instructions in Section 3.2 in Chapter 3.
