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_paco_quickstart_m2.1.6_v1.5.0
  • 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

  • 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_paco_quickstart_m2.1.6_v1.5.0\data_quickstart

    Note:

    After successful importDO NOT run magento.

    2. Command usage:

    • 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

        • 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.
