Regards, I have problems with the step 2: Error: Database does not exist!

To that it can be due?
Neither I know that it is necessary to put information in "user" and "password"
I hope that someone could help.

Thank you.

Have you created the database before installing OpenCart? OpenCart does not create a db instance. This is something you need to do before you install open cart.

The credentials you assign to the database when creating it is what you need to use with OpenCart DO NOT use the root / sa account which has privileges to all your databases.

Are you installing on Windows or Linux? and What database do you have?

Hello. Thank you for answering.

The database already was created previously though with a field structure that probably does not fit with the one that needs an e-commerce (I have several DB of proofs with a few very unlike things).

Have I to create a new name of user and a new password at the time?

I try to install on windows.

Thank you for your help.

Yes I would recomend you create a dedicated user for the db you are installing open cart into to ensure that this account does not have system wide access to your databases.

Good luck.
