Hi, i'm newbie and i want to know if it possible to consult my product catalog offline because our representative don't have internet and it's very important for me.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Magento will require a working web server with PHP and MySQL in order to run. It is not a static website, but a web application. Everything is dynamic and generated from templates being filled with database content.
The typical offline method is to take a Macintosh and install it directly on this BSD Unix derived OS or with a Windows PC laptop, install Virtualbox, create a Linux VM for the server environment and run Magento on it. Magento runs best on *nix operating systems.
You can cludge together a WAMP system, but there are difficulties down that road that will bite you, plus the performance usually stinks.
I'm gonna say it again, i'm a newbie.
Will my catalog be usable on a tablet (android or iOS) because my representatives will only use the tablet.
If yes, is it complicated to build ?
Is it OFFLINE possible ?
I use application mag-manager.com to work offline without internet and then synchronize, but it is for Windows.
