This video is recorded on MacOSX but the process for Windows is identical (except you need to download the Windows version of XAMPP, of course)
1 - Go to https://www.apachefriends.org/index.html and download XAMPP
2 - Download, open, and follow the installation process.
3 - After the installation finishes, the XAMPP Control Panel will launch.
4 - If you are on MacOSX, click on the "Open Application Folder" button. If you are on Windows, click on the "Explore" button.
This will open the xamppfiles folder. Now look for the htdocs folder.
You want to UNZIP the merchreports.zip file that you downloaded from Gumroad. Unzipping will give you a FOLDER called merchreports. Copy or extract the "merchreports" folder INTO the "htdocs" folder.
5 - If you are on Windows, click on the "Start" button on the "Apache" row. Apache is the web server, there's no need to start the other servers to run Merch Reports
That's it! You can now access Merch Reports LOCALLY on your computer to analyze your Merch By Amazon sales!
6 - To access Merch Reports, open this address on your browser :

Go to => http://localhost/merchreports
You can unzip any zipped (also known as compressed/archived) files on your hosting account.
Example for GoDaddy:
*** Make sure you don't have any other Web service running on port 80. For instance, on Windows 10, you might find that IIS (Window's web server) is active, thus impeding XAMPP's web server (Apache) to run on that same port.
