The installation process consists of 3 stages:
Let’s get started!
First, you need to prepare a new database for your Magento store. You can create the new database using the database management tool from your hosting control panel (usually PhpMyAdmin). The following data will be received while creating a database: database name, database username, password and your server name. You need to save this data as you will need it for further Magento installation.
With the PhpMyAdmin tool you will be able to create a new database in 3 simple steps:
Step 1:- Click the Database button from the top navigation menu to access the database listing.
Step 2:-Input the database name into the “Create new database”.
Step 3:- Click the Create button on the right side.
Your database can be seen in the database listing now.
Magento template package contains the sample data file (dump.sql or dump.gz). This file is located under the /sources/sample_datafolder of your template. It allows you to load sample data so that your website looks exactly like our demo template.
In order to install the dump file, follow the steps below:
-> Log into PhpMyAdmin and then select the database that you will use for Magento Commerce (It was created by you with the help of the steps provided earlier).
-> Navigate to “Import” tab and click “Browse”.
-> Find the “/sources/sample_data”folder of your template and select the sql.gz.file.
-> Click on “GO”. The import process can take a few minutes.
In order to install Magento, you need to download the archive file from the official Magento website. Select the archive type from the drop-down menu and click Download. It is necessary to register the account on Magento website in order to download the engine.
When you are done with the download, you’ll need to extract the files from the Magento engine package. This can be done with any archive manager like WinZip (PC), Stuffit Expander (MAC), etc.
In case you extracted the files locally on your computer, you need to upload them to your hosting server. This can be done using the hosting control panel File Manager or with any FTP Manager applications like FileZilla, TotalCommander, CuteFTP, etc.
The next step of the setup procedure is the template installation. The template should be installed in any case, whether you use sample data or not.
-> First of all, open the template package and go to the theme###.
-> Upload theme###folder contents to the Magento installation directory (upload “app”, “skin” and other folders). These folders contain the theme files. They will not affect your existing files.
-> If you have imported the sql.gz file and are going to use the template sample data, you need to upload the product images. Upload the “media” folder from the template sources/sample_data directory to the Magento installation root directory.
-> If you didn’t install the dump.sql.gz file, there is no need to upload the “media”.
When you are done with uploading files, you can start with Magento engine installation. Open your browser and in the address bar type your ‘domain name/path to your Magento directory’. After the welcome screen displayed, follow the steps below:
Please read the license agreement and click the “I agree to the above terms and conditions” checkbox if you agree with the terms.
Select the Locale, Time Zone and Default Currency. The Locale option defines your Magento store backend language. If you want to change the frontend language, you need to download and install Magento frontend locales. All the options can be easily changed later using the Magento admin panel.
Here you need to input the store database details and some initial settings. Database Connection – input the database hostname, username, password and name. Contact your hosting provider if you don’t have the necessary details. Make sure you have a database created for the Magento installation. And also make sure it is clear, without any tables. Web access options and Session Storage Options – please leave the options without any changes if you are not sure. The default settings usually work fine. If everything is correct, please click ‘Continue‘ button.
Here you need to input personal details for the store owner and administrator. When you are done, click ‘Continue’ button.
This is the final step of installation. Copy the generated encryption key and keep it safe. You can use the buttons in the bottom right corner to view the store front end and the Admin Panel.
In order to make the changes appear on your website with no delay, you need to disable cache. It prevents additional cache clearing actions after every change you make. You can enable it when you are done with store editing.
Please follow these steps when setting up logo image included in the theme package.
In order to install your company logo, you need to upload the logo image file into the /images folder of your Magento theme.
From the top menu select CMS > Polls.
To set up a live chat, you’ll need to register on the official Web site Olark registration. After you provide all the data required, you’ll get a code to add to your admin panel.
