On developer view we faced below issues
Its nothing but helpful to import the dependancy libraries.
Please follow below steps if the composter not installed in machine.
curl -sS https://getcomposer.org/installer | php
sudo mv composer.phar /usr/local/bin/composer
2. PHP version update
We were running almost magento stores with Ubunutu 12.04. It was running with PHP 5.3, so we have to do a manual update for upgrade process.
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ondrej/php5-oldstable
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install php5
3. MYSQL version upgrade
Here also we faced the same issues of version problem because of 12.04 version ubuntu.
wget -O mysql-5.6.deb http://cdn.mysql.com/Downloads/MySQL-5.6/mysql-5.6.14-debian6.0-x86_64.deb
If the above link is not working take below one
Choose your Linux Platforma and download proper package.
Run below command
dpkg -i mysql-5.6.14-debian6.0-x86_64.deb (OR the file you downloaded)
service mysql stop
cp -rp /var/lib/mysql /var/lib/mysql.old (Backup old data)
apt-get remove mysql-server mysql-server-5.5 mysql-server-core-5.5 (TO remove old mysql completely)
mv /etc/mysql/my.cnf /etc/my.cnf (Its a backup process only)Its better to replace the existing file on installation.
TO start mysql on boot, you have to copy new startup script to /etc/init
cp /opt/mysql/server-5.6/support-files/mysql.server /etc/init.d/mysql.server
update-rc.d mysql.server defaults
Set permission –
chown -R mysql /opt/mysql/server-5.6/
chgrp -R mysql /opt/mysql/server-5.6/
Do the below changes in configuration file /etc/
basedir = /opt/mysql/server-5.6
lc-messages-dir = /opt/mysql/server-5.6/share
update your mysql information schema to the latest version and restart mysql.
/opt/mysql/server-5.6/scripts/mysql_install_db --user=mysql --datadir=/var/lib/mysql
Then we gone through the installation steps and installed magento2 successfully.
The major changes from a developer view, we noticed are –
1. Entire admin interface changed , basically look & feel of menu , grip etc..
2. Cannot see the normal paths like app/code/core or app/code/community etc.. Intead of this we can see app/code/Magento/ and same for design folder too.
3. Cannot able to login in admin side with valid login details, no error showing. It seems to be a cookie issue and its working fine when taken in another browser. SO it will work after clear the cookies.
Next step in magento2 – Trying to install a 1.9 package in magento2 or create a custom module for magento2.
