@Irrorate DO you have to install WAMP if you have PHP and MySQL on your website/server online? Can you not just upload nyfiles to the website?

Thanks Michael

You only need to install a local server (WAMP/MAMP/XAMPP) if you want to run a server on your local PC (i.e.via your own localhost). If you own webhosting it should come pre-installed with PHP and MySQL (I know most/all Apache servers do).

If your website is online (i.e. has webhosting) it should already allow PHP and MySQL (if you’re not sure – open a support ticket)
