Pimcore Installation

Check Pimcore System Requirements

First you should check if you meet the requirements for the pimcore version you will be installing. Check the pimcore documentation for the current requirements: Pimcore Documentation - Requirements

Configure PHP Configurations

Change these values in your fpm and cli php.ini files located in \etc\php\fpmand \etc\php\cli respectively

upload_max_filesize = 2G  
memory_limit = 300M  
post_max_size = 2G  
realpath_cache_size = 4M  
date.timezone = Europe/Berlin 

Install composer

You can either go to getcomposer.org and follow the installation there or execute the following code. Attention this code is without the hash check given on the official composer installation guide.

php -r "copy('https://getcomposer.org/installer', 'composer-setup.php');"
php composer-setup.php
php -r "unlink('composer-setup.php');"
sudo mv composer.phar /usr/local/bin/composer

with this content:

innodb_file_format = Barracuda
innodb_large_prefix = 1
