วันนี้มีโอกาสได้ทดลองใช้ CMS สำหรับ E-Commerce Website โดย @KayEss แนะนำให้ลอง Magento ดู พบว่าเข้าท่ามากมาย ลองมาดูวิธีการติดตั้งกันครับ

Software requirement:

  • Linux, Windows, or another UNIX-compatible operating system
  • Apache Web Server (1.x or 2.x)
  • PHP 5.2.0 or newer, with the following extensions/addons:
    • PDO/MySQL
    • MySQLi
    • mcrypt
    • mhash
    • simplexml
    • DOM
  • MySQL 4.1.20 or newer
  • InnoDB storage engine
  • A Sendmail-compatible Mail Transfer Agent (MTA)
    • Magento will connect directly to an SMTP server if you don’t have an MTA


  1. install necessories packages.

    sudo apt-get install php5-mhash php5-mcrypt php5-mysql

  2. Download the .zip, .tar.bz2 or .tar.gz file from the Magento website and decompress it.

    tar -xvf magento-1.3.1.tar.bz2 magento/

  3. Create a MySQL database and user/password for Magento
  4. Ensure that the directories app/etc ,var , and media are writable by the web server.

    cd magento

    sudo chmod -R www-data:www-data app/etc

    sudo chmod -R www-data:www-data var/

    sudo chmod -R www-data:www-data media/

    if you can’t chown you can chmod to status 777
