2INSTALLATION

There are two ways to install a Magento Theme:

  • Quickstart Installation: Suitable if you have your first installation and want to get a whole new fresh site as our Demo.
  • Manual Installation (including Theme Installation): Suitable if your store is full with content that you don’t want to overwrite.

2.1 Quickstart Installation:

Magentech provides SM Quickstart package for each theme which aims to ease the installation for users. Please note that with Quickstart, all your existing data will be overwritten. Thus, if you plan to start your site from the beginning, it will help you save much time of installing and configuring.

Note: Follow Magento 2.0 Installation Guide to install the Composer before doing this Quickstart installation.

Please follow steps below:

  • Step 1: Download the quickstart package named as sm_love_fashion_quickstart_pl_m2.1.9_v2.6.0
  • Step 2: Extract and Upload the whole Quickstart package to your server. In Quickstart folder you will see the extracted folder that include all sample data
  • Step 3: Create a Database for your Magento site
  • Note: You need to remember the database name to use in the next steps

    • Step 4:Import database sample_data.sql under the folder sm_love_fashion_quickstart_pl_m2.1.9_v2.6.0\data_quickstart

    Note:

    After successful import DO NOT run magento.

    Now we are going to Set file system ownership and permissions. To perform all actions, you should use PuTTY – a free SSH and telnet client for Windows on your computer. When you have the command-line access, enter the following commands in the order shown:

    Go Here to readmore about the action.

    • Step 5: Run installation process by opening browser and navigate to your URL (where the Quickstart uploaded) to load default Magento installer and follow each step of the Installer so that the installation process can be set.

    • Step 6: Choose Start Readiness Check. After Start Readiness Check is completed, select Next .


    When you click on “Start Readiness Check”,the error could occur like the below image

    You need to open your php.ini file and remove semicolon (;) in front of the following lines:

    • ;extension=php_intl.dll
    • ;extension=php_xsl.dll

    After modification, need to save the file(php.ini) as well as need to restart the Apache Server and check out the result.

    • Step 7: Enter server and database in step 2 and then click on Next.

    • Step 8: Put your website link and continue to click on Next.

    • Step 9: Customize your store: you can choose Time Zone, Currency and Languages.

    • Step 10: You need to Create Admin Account. Enter your information and move to the next step.

    • Step 11: In this step, you should click on the button: Install Now.


    It will take some minutes to complete this installation process. If your window is the same as below, CONGRAT! You install this quickstart package successfully

    After clicking on the button, the Admin Login screen will be opened and you can use admin credentials to login on this screen. It will open Admin panel after successful authentication.

    Note:

    The message “Product images resized successfully” displays to confirm the command succeeded.

        Note: You could change the name of this folder. However, if you want your website run correctly, it need to have the same name as the database.

      • Step 2:
      • Now we are going to verify Composer installation, Deploy static content, Clear compiled code and the cache, Reindex the Magento 2 blocks. Remember that you have had the Composer before doing this step by following Magento 2.0 Installation Guide to get the Composer.

        • If you get any error in this step, please check your Composer installation.

        • 2. In this step, we are setting up static content to deploy on our Magento store. To perform this, type php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy.
        • If you get any error, check your PHP.EXE and PHP.INI Environment Variable

        • 3. Clear compiled code and the cache by typing php bin/magento setup:upgrade in CMD. Typically, you use magento this command line to update components and each component can require different compiled classes.

        • 4. And finally, to Reindex Magento Static Blocks type php bin/magento indexer:reindex.
