My last article was “Google No Captcha reCAPTCHA”. . Magento is another most advance open source ecommerce platform. Its modular structure, flexibility and robustness made it very well known in PHP world. If you are beginner and wondering “How to install and configure Magento” then this article I will show you simple steps how to install Magento v1.9 into WAMP server.
Magento Installation & Configuration - Step by Step guide
Go to Magento website (http://www.magentocommerce.com/download) and download the magento community edition as your choiceble format. I have downloaded zip format.
Extract the zip file and paste it inside your www root directory. We will rename folder to magento as below screenshot.
Go to phpmyadmin and create a database called “magento”. This is where all magento tables will generate.
Before next step make sure curl extension enabled and max_execution_time increased in your php.ini file.
Open your browser and enter http://localhost/magento/ will display below page, agree terms and condition and click continue.
Next screen you will find Localization, you can keep as it is or change it later on from the admin panel. Click continue and you will be landed on configuration screen where you are required to give your database connection details as screen below. In my case I have configured database name as magento, username root and no password. Once you filled click continue to proceed next.
Next screen you may create admin account. That’s it. We are done with the configuration. You will find two button end of the page called “frontend” and “backend” as screen below. Save the encryption key in safe place.
You have successfully installed magento in WAMP server. You can click visit frontend by clicking frontend button and admin panel to manage store.
