    Magento installation

    Question 1: How to install magento, the order of the commands from the beginning to the installation, and is there a description ...
    Thank you.

    Question 2: Is there a setup application on the panel?
    1. That is what the Magento forum/documentation is for.
    2. No, thankfully. The marketing power of Adobe has brought it to the fore in other panels but it should only be considered for full blown enterprise IT departments, not the 'casual' hoster/shop owner.

    I run 2 sites on CWP Pro with the absolutely horrible Adobe 'Bloatware' Magento. You'll need a least the following, for a small to mid-size store:
    • 4 GB RAM, preferably more and double that if you want anti-virus.
    • Dual core, preferably more but depends on CPU
    • 6 GB per store as a starting point - the site will consume 5 times that amount in a very short space of time, unless you ruthlessly manage logs.
    • You'll need a server with high IOPS, so a HDD is nearly out of the picture and SSD/NVMe is more suitable.

    In short, just don't use Adobe crapware if you can possibly avoid it. (I inherited/took over hosting those two sites, for a long-standing client.) The software developers suggest poor file permissions, multiple cron task at minute intervals (appalling thing to do!) and the slightest changes invalidate the caches. Additionally, module additions bring a live site down during installation and HEAVILY load a server during compilations/deployment. It's a complete mess.

    Compare this with a site that also runs under CWP Pro, with an osCommerce-derived package. It has thousands of products listed.
    • 2GB RAM
    • Single core
    • 200MB disc used

    Just as a friendly advice from someone who does e-commerce all the time,
    If you don't know how to install magento, forget about it.
    It's very difficult to use, very heavy on resources and without a team of developers it will never work.
    Same with Prestashop.
    Try OpenCart or CubeCart.
    CubeCart might look pretty basic but it will process 1000's of transactions without a glitch and it's very easy to setup.
    Hope this helps

    (A week later!  :-*)
    Installation is one thing - "more fool you" - good luck with the management/security/customisation/bugs. You'll need it.
    One could just about write a book on the number of exceptions required for the standard OWASP mod_security rules.  ::)

    If there was a list of the worst applications to install on a server, then Magento would stand tall at number one, by far. No exaggeration!

    Zencart is the only way to go when it comes to ecommerce.  There are 130,000 members in the forum.  It has been around for 20 years.  100% opensource.
    Listen to everything Pixelpadre says.
