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
Change these values in your fpm and cli php.ini files located in
upload_max_filesize = 2G memory_limit = 300M post_max_size = 2G realpath_cache_size = 4M date.timezone = Europe/Berlin
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
create a new file in
sudo nano /etc/mysql/conf.d/pimcore.conf
with this content:
[mysqld] innodb_file_format = Barracuda innodb_large_prefix = 1 innodb_file_per_table = 1 [mariadb] plugin_load_add = ha_archive # optional but recommended, starting from mariadb 10.1 archive format is no more activated by default (check and adapt for mysql or other database software)
switch to the home directory and remove the contents of your www folder
cd ~ rm -rf www/*
create an empty pimcore skeleton with composer
COMPOSER_MEMORY_LIMIT=-1 composer create-project pimcore/skeleton www
create the database with this command:
sudo mysql -u root -e "CREATE DATABASE pimcorecasts charset=utf8mb4;"
now create a database user
sudo mysql -u root -e "GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON pimcorecasts.* TO 'pimcorecasts'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY '1234';"
launch the installer and follow the setup. Here you will need the user and database info you created in the previous steps.
cd ~/www vendor/bin/pimcore-install
