Installing StoreCore

Installation Quickstart Guide

  1. Download the latest edition of the StoreCore files from the GitHub repository if you haven’t already. Always download or fork the master branch for production purposes.

  2. Create a new MySQL database for StoreCore on your web server. Do not use the default MySQL test database or a database name with the test_ prefix.

  3. Add a MySQL user who has all privileges for accessing and modifying the StoreCore database.

  4. Find the config.php configuration file, then edit the file and add your database information in the Database section.

  5. Optional. If configured correctly, StoreCore is able to install the database by itself. However, the installation MAY run faster and smoother if you install the database manually with a database administration tool like MySQL Workbench, phpMyAdmin, or a MySQL command line interface. First run the SQL file core-mysql.sql to create all tables; next run the i18n-dml.sql file to add all language pack data. Both SQL files are located in the /StoreCore/Database/ folder.

  6. Upload the StoreCore files to the desired location on your web server. This usually is a folder called public_html for a domain or www for a subdomain like Do not upload the /tests/ folder to a production server (or delete it afterwards): this folder contains PHP unit tests for development purposes.

  7. Run the StoreCore installation by accessing the /install/ folder in a web browser. For example, if StoreCore was uploaded for the host name, then point your browser to the URL If StoreCore was not previously installed, you will be guided through the necessary steps to complete the installation.

Installation Logs

All installation and configuration activities are logged to .log text files in the /logs/ directory. If the StoreCore installation fails for any reason, please first check these log files for possible errors, warnings or other critical messages.

The location of the /logs/ directory is defined in the global constant STORECORE_FILESYSTEM_LOGS_DIR in the config.php configuration file. If this global constant is undefined (or the config.php file was not loaded), log files MAY be saved in different directories. This usually is the current working directory for the main PHP application, for example the /install/ directory when you are executing the /install/index.php application.

For transparency into our release cycle and in striving to maintain backward compatibility, StoreCore is maintained under the Semantic Versioning (SemVer) guidelines Sometimes we may screw up, but we’ll adhere to those rules whenever possible.
