Magento: The worst software installation i have seen till now

Re: Magento: The worst software installation i have seen till now

You have a fair point...

The process to install / update does seem to be getting worse everytime.

I miss the days of the precheck list of PHP and MySQL etc.

Would it be do difficult to make one that would tell you straight up before you start rather than getting 2/3rds the way in and it failing due to a missing function or dependancy.

Right now the command line install tells you it has worked but the site it self has other ideas...

Re: Magento: The worst software installation i have seen till now

Has this been resolved? I am experiencing the same. Magento seems like the worst installation software. I can't get it work in my local server in windows.

Re: Magento: The worst software installation i have seen till now

@bruno_carvalho2 my friend, I'm with you on this one... what a HORRIBLE downloading and installing experience.

 

I never used Magento 1.x but surely it was better than what it is today. Adobe really screwed it up and unfortunately the CE edition is almost useless. Documentation is too shallow and not helpful at all.

 

After a couple of days trying to set it up on a Mac then on an Ubuntu, I decided to try an install via Installatron on my hosting provider and finally got it running.

 

But... importing sample data into a hosted instance where you don't have SSH access (let alone sudo) it's basically impossible.

 

Anyways, long story short, I gave up. 

 

I have just downloaded Shopware 6 CE, unzipped, went to localhost/shopware and... guess what: a web installation wizard that actually works!

 

So that's it for me. Not sure what happened after Magento 2.0 launched, if the dev team changed, or if Adobe decided "let's make the CE version impossible to use so that they have to pay us to set it up". Wither way, so far so good with Shopware and will not look back.

Hi @wagnerwagnb0e6,

 

Could you share how you tried to install Magento Open Source (formerly CE) on Mac and Ubuntu?

Are you using Docker or something like Mamp?

If you meet the system requirements, the installation should be done by following these steps:

 

composer create-project --repository=https://repo.magento.com/ magento/project-community-edition

Then install Magento:

bin/magento setup:install --admin-firstname=John --admin-lastname=Doe --admin-email=john.doe@example.com --admin-user=your_username --admin-password=secreat_password --base-url=http://magento2.localhost/ --backend-frontname=admin --db-host=database_hostname --db-name=database_name --db-user=database_user --db-password=database_password --language=en_US --currency=USD --use-rewrites=1

That should work. Maybe you want to set the cronjobs too running this command:

bin/magento cron:install

As I said, that should work for a fresh install.

 

Re: Magento: The worst software installation i have seen till now

Doesn't work on a clean install of Big Sur. Easy enough to fix if you know how, but certainly far from simple. Installing Drupal 8 and 9 using DDEV is much easier than this.

 

 

Your requirements could not be resolved to an installable set of packages.

  Problem 1
    - Root composer.json requires magento/product-community-edition 2.4.2-p1 -> satisfiable by magento/product-community-edition[2.4.2-p1].
    - magento/product-community-edition 2.4.2-p1 requires ext-intl * -> it is missing from your system. Install or enable PHP's intl extension.
  Problem 2
    - magento/magento2-functional-testing-framework[3.0.0, ..., 3.5.1] require ext-intl * -> it is missing from your system. Install or enable PHP's intl extension.
    - Root composer.json requires magento/magento2-functional-testing-framework ^3.0 -> satisfiable by magento/magento2-functional-testing-framework[3.0.0, ..., 3.5.1].

Hi @danepiphyt7077,

 

The problem you are showing there is not OS related. In that case you didn't have all the required PHP extensions.

Here you can find all the PHP extensions needed: https://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.4/install-gde/prereq/php-settings.html
