Hi, I'm pretty new (I started this yesterday) So far I've installed a Commerce Kickstart distribution on a local host using an old version of Wampserver. I want to keep the demo site that comes with CK up and running for a while to learn from it so I wanted to create a different site using the same Drupal installation for my actual real website which I'll eventually link up to my registered domain.
So... I've looked at a lot of answers and I've:
1) created a new database
2) created a new folder in the sites/ folder
3) copied the defaultsettings.php in there
4) changed its name to settings.php
5) checked that it's writable.
it seems all i have to do now is edit the settings.php file and then I can install.... BUT every post seems to say I need to change the " $db_url " part in the new settings.php file I've created. But it doesn't exist! Help!
I'm unsure as to how to direct it to the new database (which I presume this is for) and once that's done, how I'll know what url to put in to find the site here locally and install on it.
I've been looking for a solution for hours... :(
