This tutorial will show you how to install PrestaShop engine and template on localhost.
PrestaShop engine installation
Please make sure your version of PrestaShop engine matches the template requirements. All versions of PrestaShop are available at SourceForge.
We have copied PrestaShop engine installation files and folders to eva/ subfolder of the localhost www directory:
Open the new tab in your browser and paste the link. Usually it looks like http://localhost/. In our case the link is http://localhost/eva/. Select the language of the installation. Accept license agreement and click Next:
Set shop settings, Specify e-mail address and password. Click Next:
Now we need to specify database access details. Let’s create the database.
Open your Database management tool. Usually it is called phpmyadmin. Database can be accessed using the following link:
http://localhost/phpmyadmin/ (please note that in your localhost software the link can be different). Click on Databases tab:
Create the database:
Specify database access details. In Username field you should specify database user. It was set during localhost software installation. In our case password is blank as user does not have password. Click Next:

Unzip the template package. You can see unzipped template files:
