Trying and failing to install opencart (solved)


I just got set up and still trying to find my way around. I need to set up my new web site before moving the URL. I am currently using Magento and moving to Opencart here at DH.

I uploaded OpenCart files per instructions, changed the file names and permissions but when I visit the site I simply get “No site configured at this address”

I am using temporary mirror URL and I am wondering if that is the issue… if so, how can I get around it?
OK… found out you need to have www in the url
