At the basic level, this theme will require the following conditions:

  • System Requirements – Required system credentials for your magento installation.
  • Installation Guide – Installation guide that describes how to install magento2.
  • Online Magento 2 guide – Online magento documentation that describes about magento2 in detail.

  • 2INSTALLATION

    Note:

    As of Magento 2.4.0, MySQL is no longer used for search. You must use Elasticsearch. Magento supports Elasticsearch 7.6.x.
    (Magento no longer supports Elasticsearch 2.x, 5.x, and 6.x.)

    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 donai??i??t want to overwrite.

    2.1 Quickstart Installation:

    Magentech provides SM Quickstart package for each theme which aims to ease the installation for users. If you plan to start your site from the beginning, it will help you save much time of installing and configuring. Please follow steps below:

    Important: You must use the command line to install Magento 2.4+.

    • Step 1: Download the quickstart package named as sm_sport_quickstart_pl_m2.4.0_v4.0.0
    • Step 2: Upload and Extract the whole Quickstart package to your server. In Quickstart folder you will see the extracted folder that include all sample data
    • After upload quickstart package, please extract package by this command: unzip file.zip

    • Step 3: Create a Database for your Magento site

      Important!

      You need to remember the database name to use in the next steps

    • Step 4: Import database sample_data.sql under the folder sm_sport_quickstart_pl_m2.4.0_v4.0.0\data_quickstart

      Note: You can import database by run this command mysql -u root -p database_name < sample_data.sql


      Note: After that please go to folder root and run these command to permissions:

      chmod -R 777 pub
      chmod -R 777 generated
      chmod -R 777 var
    • Step 5: Install Magento

      This example assumes that the Magento install directory is named sm_sport, the db-host is on the same machine (localhost), and that the db-name, db-user, and db-password are all magento:

      php bin/magento setup:install --base-url=http://192.168.1.220/ytc_templates/magento/sm_sport --base-url-secure=https://192.168.1.220/ytc_templates/magento/sm_sport --db-host=localhost --db-name=magento --db-user=magento --db-password=magento --admin-firstname=admin --admin-lastname=admin --admin-email=admin@admin.com --admin-user=admin --admin-password=admin123 --language=en_US --currency=USD --timezone=America/Chicago --use-rewrites=1 --backend-frontname="admin" --search-engine=elasticsearch7 --elasticsearch-index-prefix=sport

      Messages similar to the following display to indicate a successful installation:

      Post installation file permissions check...
      For security, remove write permissions from these directories: '/var/www/html/ytc_templates/magento/sm_sport/app/etc'
      [Progress: 274 / 274] [SUCCESS]: Magento installation complete.
      [SUCCESS]: Admin Panel URI: /admin_puu71q

      Note: You can customize the Admin URI with the --backend-frontname option. However, we recommend omitting this option and allowing the installation command to automatically generate a random URI. A random URI is harder for hackers or malicious software to exploit. The URI displays in your console when installation is complete.

    • Step 6: Can't login to admin panel
      When you login to admin will be display like this image:

      Please open file app/etc/config.php and change 'Magento_TwoFactorAuth' => 1 to 'Magento_TwoFactorAuth' => 0

      After that run these command:
      php bin/magento setup:upgrade
      and php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy -f

    • Step 7: Finally, permissions for the following folders by run these commands:
      chmod -R 777 pub
      chmod -R 777 generated
      chmod -R 777 var

    2.2 Manual Installation

    Important!

    - We recommend you to duplicate your live store on a development store and try installation on it in advance.

    - Backup magento files and the store database.

    It's very important to backup all of themes and extensions in Magento before installation, especially when you are working on a live server. We strongly recommend you to do not omit this step.

    - Note: Manual Installation can only import CMS Page and Static Block. Products, Categories, Megamenu may not display when you use Manual Installation, you need to configure manually (by yourself >> please read documentation carefully)

    • Step 1: Download Magento 2.4.x https://magento.com/tech-resources/download and install on your server
    • Step 2: Please download 'sm_sport_theme_m2.1.x-2.4.x_v4.0.0.zip' file and upload to the root of your magento site folder on your server, after that unzip by command unzip name_file.zip.
    • Step 3:
      Active SM Extensions, open command line in folder root of magento and run commands via ssh using putty or others php bin/magento setup:upgrade

    • Step 4: Run deploy command: php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy -f

      Finally, permissions for the following folders by run these commands:
      chmod -R 777 pub
      chmod -R 777 generated
      chmod -R 777 var
