Part 2: Build an ecommerce site using PrestaShop framework

Build an ecommerce site using PrestaShop framework

Hello ladies and gentlemen, 1Byte is back


As always, to be able to build a website using a certain framework. You need to do the following steps:

+ Step 1: Install PrestaShop framework, necessary packages, and set up customizations on the BackEnd side to the Server (You’ve done this in Part 1)

+ Step 2: Based on the components in step 1, install PrestaShop site through your browser (You are here, Part 2!)

+ Step 3: Install SSL Certificate on your website

+ Step 4: Customize the interface and manage PrestaShop to your liking ^^


To do this Step 2, you need to read through and finished Part 1. This is a must and you have to have the following components:

+ Domain Name

+ Cloud Server

+ PrestaShop framework is already installed on your Server

+ A spirit of eagerness to learn new things

No MORE SMALL TALK, Let's hands on

In Part 1, you will be stopping here

(After choosing your language, click Next)


(To use PrestaShop framework, you need to agree to some terms and conditions. Check on the box and click Next)


(Ooopps…! Warning alert = =!)

But don’t worry too much because 1Byte is already here, I always with you when you are in trouble

According to PrestaShop’s instructions, there are several things you need to fix.

→ Let’s go back to the Server side and use the Terminal Interface to fix it

(I already ssh into the server, how about you?)

1) Instal “Mbstring” PHP extension by running this command

					sudo yum install php-mbstring -y

sudo systemctl restart httpd

2) Next is install “PHP Accelerator” to boost up your site

But hold on!!!…

I also read the document of PHP eaccelerator and this only works with PHP version 4 and 5. While our PHP is version 7

→ Will skip this step. You see, I save your time again

(For more information, you can access to PHP eaccelerator material)




Ok now, we just need to refresh our page, to check whether the Warning Message remains or not?
(Bravo!, we no longer see the Warning Message, instead, PrestaShop requires us to provide some information to setup your website. Once you have finished,  just click Next to move on)
+ Please remember not to check Enable SSL with option YES
+ Please check with options NO
+ This is because If you choose the YES option, this will make your website inoperable for two reasons:
1) On the server side, we haven’t told the firewallcmd allowe https service yet, we just allowed http service
2) Up to now, our website has not installed SSL certificates
+ PrestaShop requests database information (which I already created in Part 1) in this phase
(This image was retrieved from Part 1 at the section create MariaDB database. If you don’t remember, please refer to Part 1 my friend)
 Once everything is OK, move to the next section
