Hi. I've downloaded the entire backup from my ISP's server that was hosting an xcart application (based on php, uses mysql among other things). The backup contains the home directory that I could see on their server, as well as a bunch of other stuff including a mysql folder?
So now I have this directory structure on my local hard drive, and I have just installed XAMPP. So what now?
I basically want to run locally what was running on the ISP's server.
Do I need to copy the various directories somewhere under the XAMPP tree for example?
How do I hook the XAMPP sql stuff with my sql database?
Here is what is in the backup directory (unpacked):
The directory homedir contains what was on my home directory on the ISP's server.
In there is a sub-directory called public_html which contained the website pages.
I'm hoping somebody will recognise what all the stuff is and guide me?
Thanks for your time.
