Make sure you are running PHP4.0.4 or later. Unpack all the files into a directory accessible by your webserver. <p>
To test, try modifying some of the tutorial examples. Make sure you customize the connection settings correctly. You can debug using: <pre>
&lt;?php
include('adodb/adodb.inc.php');

$db = <b>ADONewConnection</b>($driver); # eg. 'mysql' or 'oci8' $db->debug = true;
$db-><b>Connect</b>($server, $user, $password, $database); $rs = $db-><b>Execute</b>('select * from some_small_table'); print "&lt;pre>";
print_r($rs-><b>GetRows</b>());
print "&lt;/pre>";
?>
</pre>
