Question Loading Mambo Or Phpnuke Cms Locally??

I have Mandrake 9.1 installed. Apache 2.0.x is installed.
php4.x is installed, and I have both MySQL and PostgreSQL
installed and running.

I checked by opening up the browser and point to my machine
(http://localhost:0 ... and it tells me that my web server on this system is fully operational. It also says that its an
Apache Adavanced Extranet Server.

Ive dowloaded, and un-tared the phpnuke and mambo CMS'.

Ive already created a database name, username and password.

Where can I go to load a .sql file, that will populate the tables in the database? Do I have to load phpmyadmin?? Ive done it with that before...

Subsequently, where do I load the directories and files to ??
the .htaccess file??

Can anyone please help out?

I don't know mambo and I moved from phpNuke to Postnuke last year.. however....

Put the files in /var/www/html

ie: /var/www/html/phpnuke

THen you can browse via: http://localhost/phpnuke or http://localhost/mambo

I know with postnuke,LostNuke Envolution, local installations are simple -- they connect to the database with the username & password you specify. Note: if you haven't made any changes and this is just a workstation, you can use "root" as your username during install with a blank password.

Im using slackware 9. So it may vary abit.
Running the command that I posted about will take care of your database. Make sure that you have knowledge of your absolute path because half the time thatís half the problem.
Keep me posted on your progress.
