Today many people are already using Magento 2 and most of them are really happy with it. There are so many advantages of using Magento 2 over other forms of
ecommerce solutions available in the market. It is easy to use, fully compatible and it is very fast. This makes Magento hosting very popular among small and medium-sized businesses.
Before you install Magento 2, you need to make sure that the system is properly configured. It is important to keep in track of the various tasks that take place during the Magento setup. The various processes include activating the theme engine,
activating the language settings, configuring payment options, activating the database and many others. As you may not be familiar with these tasks when you are setting up Magento 2, it is better to utilize the inbuilt system installer. It will automate most of these tasks and you just need to keep an eye over the activities.
When you create a database on your own, you have to follow few basic steps. Firstly, open MySQL command line and then create the database. Next, create the tables and insert all the relevant information into the database. It is important to note that you should always install the MySQL package with PHP 7.1 -up and create a database with
these commands. Now, open the Nginx service and start the installation process.
When you open the Nginx configuration file, you should see a number of parameters that will be used by the Magento application. Most of these parameters are self explanatory and you don’t need to worry about them. You can alter them as per requirement. However, there are a few parameters that will be useful for the Magento 2
site that you are developing.
One parameter that you need to modify is located beneath system settings. It is best that you change this value and then utilize the command line to approve the change. If you are using Linux operating system, you can utilize the command line to alter the values that are set below. For Windows users, the process will be same but the only
difference that you will face is that you will need to utilize the “netsh” command in order to accept the changes. Modifying the aforementioned variables will help you customize your preferred default behavior to include or exclude products from the product list displayed on the web pages.
The other necessary parameter that you need to alter is located beneath extensions wanted section. If you are developing store that contains both text and images, you will be better off utilizing the default attributes when it comes to text. If you are developing store that solely displays images, then you can easily configure the images
via the “imagengo extension”. This method will allow the displaying of images on all the pages and will also help in speeding up the performance of Magento 2 web development.
Now that you have established the necessary parameters in your Nginx configuration file, you can just restart the Magento 2 Web Development server and use your preferred default settings. It is recommended to keep in mind that if you have installed several extensions previously, then ensure that they are properly restarted after the
restart of your Magento 2 application. If not, it could cause problems such as application crash or error messages appearing. You can determine which extension needs to be restarted through the error log that will be generated during the restart process.
