How to install magento

Magento

Sometimes, magento is not easy to install, especially for beginner users. But hundreds of ecommerce systems exist, but very few can match the power of Magento. Also Magento is a very powerful Open Source eCommerce System, which offers offering unprecedented flexibility and control. Tutorial from this article it will guide you to install magento on a webserver, and screencast bellow it show how to install on a local machine.

 

Tutorial:

1. Go to http://www.magentocommerce.com/download/noregister and download the “full release” package onto your home computer in any format, but I recommend .zip for most users.

2. Once the download finishes, log in to cPanel at (your domain)/cpanel, such as magento.site.com/cpanel. After logging in, you may either use a FTP client like Filezilla or File Manager on cPanel.

3. Once you upload the magento package, you may use file manager’s extraction tool to extract the files within the package.  Go to file manager and select the magento package, then extract it to any folder you want. The extraction tool will typically create a folder called magento, which contains all the installation files.

4.  Now you have all the installation files extracted to your directory.

5. Go to “MySql Databases under the “Database” menu, which is right above the “Software/Services” menu.  Then create a new database. Once you create the database, you should see a database in the form of (username)_(database name you just created).

6. Now open a new browser window and in the address bar, enter (your domain)/(directory where magento folder is located), e.i. magento.site.com/magento. It should take you the installation page for Magento.  Most of the information provided should already be provided for you.  You agree to the terms and conditions, hit next, select your location, hit next and so on.
