We recommend installing Magento automatically using our dashboard wizard. Follow this guide: here. In order to achieve optimal performance for Magento webshops, we recommend that you use our Enterprise web hosting which has ultra-fast LiteMage Full Page Cache that will ensure extremely fast web pages.
This guide explains how to install the Magento webshop on our web hosting accounts.
When ordering, you received an email containing the details of the web hosting account you created with us. In the frame below, you will see the relevant web hosting information we are using for the purpose of this example, as well as other relevant information:
Step 1 - Download Magento:
Go to the Magento website on http://www.magentocommerce.com ad download the latest full version of Magento (Magento Community version). You can pick between different file formats when downloading. Choose the one you prefer. If you do not have any preferences, you should select .zip, as this will generally pose less challenges.
Step 2 - Unzip the archive:
The file that you downloaded is an archive that contains the entire Magento installation. Unzip this locally on the machine you are using.
Step 3 - Create database:
In order to use Magento, you need a database. Follow the guide: Creation of MySQL database in cPanel in order to create the database with its associated database user. During the creation we refer to "magento" as the database name and "bruker1" as the database user in this guide. This gives a database name and a database user name as mentioned at the top of this guide (all database names and database user names will have the web hosting account user name as a prefix).
Step 4 - Upload Magento to the web hosting account:
Magento can be uploaded in several different ways. This guide employs the simplest method - via FTP. If you are unsure of how to set up an FTP client, you should visit the guide for this in the guide section of our website.
In our example, we will be installing Magento on the address: http://dittdomene.net/magento. When logging in via FTP, you will go to the public_html/magento folder. Files placed in the public_html/magento folder vil be made available on the address: http://dittdomene.net/magento. If you cannot find the public_html folder, most likely you have specified for your FTP client to start in this folder.
Upload all of the files and folders from the magento folder on your local machine to the web hosting account. Beware that it may take some time, as a lot of files need to be uploaded.
Step 5 - Browser installation:
Visit the http://dittdomene.net/magento address in your web browser. Automatically, you will be shown the first installation page.
The installation is now complete. If everything went well, no error messages will be shown.
We have now covered the steps needed to install Magento on your web hosting account. You can inspect the webshop on the URL where you installed it, and you can manage it on the administrator pages. In our example, the two URLs are displayed in the frame below:
