Put public http files on appropriate www folder, shows notice of license instead of website

Recommended Posts

Hello. I am trying to run a backup of the store on a laptop using LAMP . I am doing this in order to see if an upgrade is possible, but for now I Just want to be able to run it.

 

I moved the folder that has the index files and all the other things needed to run the prestashop (1.4) in the apache folder index, and removed the generic index that said "apache is running fine"

Now all I get is the notice of license from prestashop as I enter localhost. 

Do you have any ideas why it chose this instead of the index.php file?

 

Thanks in advance

Ehm, did you also clone the database and set the connection and credentials to it in config file?

No. Is there a guide on how to do that?

Thanks a lot! I've been trying to do this for a couple of weeks lol. I guess the joke's on me for using ubuntu >.<

 

Just a reminder, the first link is not valid for 32bit ubuntu users , XAMPP is no longer supported for 32 bit versions :/

Sorry for my sarcastic comment: 32-bit ? Well, nobody is using 32-bit on servers anymore.... This is very old architecture.

You are right  :rolleyes: Absolutely right!

But I am only using it for testing it on this old laptop.. Godaddy probably uses 64bit version

You will have problem with datatransfer. Please use same architecture. 32-bit cannot read big data strings. You cannot import a 64-database into a 32-bit dtabase. This is not possible ! Only the opposite way is possible: 32 to -> 64

Yeah, I have kind of given up on doing it. (definitely tried though)

I didn't think it would be so hard at the beginning. (ubuntu)

Buying a new laptop just to test the prestashop is kind of meh atm

I sincerely thank all of you who tried to help.

That's not an ubuntu problem, but an architecture problem. You cannot import data from 64 to 32 without compiling them. There is no way, only via scripting before. besides I'm sure database machine is also another (innodb to myisam).... Two differnet world without intermediate scripting not compatible. from low to high is ok, but from high to low not without manipulation before. This is a task for specialists in data migration.. ;)

I understand what you're saying, but even so. It is very hard to do in ubuntu even if I had a 64-bit computer. 

Since this is for work only, I don't think I want to buy a new laptop for this. I can manage the e-store fine using the administrative tools on my web browser. I'll just not be able to upgrade that's all. I might change my mind though and just buy a cheap laptop that runs 64 bit windows.
