Magento2 installation hell

Magento2 installation hell

Dear,

 

I just finish a magento2 CE installation: The Hell like the rpm (for the one who run Redhat)

 

- I tried the composer install, web install and cli installation with out any success, so I used the git clone procedure and I finished with the following problem: the css files are not found in this server (apache2 answer) when I try to login into the admin url, same result with the front-end

-- apache2:

The requested URL /magento2/pub/static/adminhtml/Magento/backend/en_US/jquery/jstree/themes/default/style.css was not found on this server

-- magento2 installation dir:

/var/www/html/ > find magento2 -iname style.css -type f
magento2/app/code/Magento/Swagger/view/frontend/web/swagger-ui/css/style.css
magento2/vendor/oyejorge/less.php/test/assets/style.css
magento2/vendor/phpunit/php-code-coverage/src/CodeCoverage/Report/HTML/Renderer/Template/css/style.css
magento2/lib/web/jquery/jstree/themes/apple/style.css
magento2/lib/web/jquery/jstree/themes/default/style.css
magento2/lib/web/jquery/jstree/themes/default-rtl/style.css
magento2/lib/web/jquery/jstree/themes/classic/style.css

 

As you can see not the same thing ?!

 

The magento1 installation was great but the magento2 installation is a Hell.  I am wondering if you did some installation before shipping this software ?!  Now I understand why opensource is not trusted.

 

Regards,

 

Yves

Re: Magento2 installation hell

Dear,

 

I did it and it's worst, a blank page !?

 

So I restarted a brand new install, including your command...

Re: Magento2 installation hell

Maybe try clearing browser cache?

Deploying the static files locally like this worked for me..


Did you see it try to download thousands of files with ................................................ progress showing?

Re: Magento2 installation hell

Dear,

 

I did a fresh install, wipeout the magento directory and drop the database.

 

I redid my procedure

I got the front-end: Good Smiley Happy

I got the back-end: Good Smiley Happy

 

At the first try I got: PHP Fatal error:  Uncaught exception 'Zend_Cache_Exception' with message 'cache_dir "/var/www/html/magento2/var/page_cache" is not writable

 

Not fix from magento-1.X ...

 

but I ask for fr_CA and I got en_US interface at login, I did the installation with: --language=fr_CA

and the css: 

The requested URL /magento2/pub/static/adminhtml/Magento/backend/en_US/extjs/resources/css/ytheme-magento.css was not found on this server

 

same point Smiley Sad

 

 I did the procedure at: http://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.0/config-guide/cli/config-cli-subcommands-static-view.html

 

find magento2 -iname "ytheme*" -type f
magento2/pub/static/adminhtml/Magento/backend/fr_CA/extjs/resources/css/ytheme-magento.css
magento2/pub/static/frontend/Magento/luma/fr_CA/extjs/resources/css/ytheme-magento.css
magento2/pub/static/frontend/Magento/blank/fr_CA/extjs/resources/css/ytheme-magento.css
magento2/lib/web/extjs/resources/css/ytheme-magento.css

 

but the html page ask for en_US ? installation bug...

Re: Magento2 installation hell

I have had all the same issues that you explain.  The documentation sucks bad, the installation is flawed.  This product appears to be more than six months from ready.  I have managed to get some assistance on GitHub, so here is the link for anyone else going through the same kind of hell https://github.com/magento/magento2/issues/6366
