In this tutorial, we are going to explain in step-by-step detail how to install the Bagisto eCommerce platform on Ubuntu 22.04

Bagisto is an eCommerce platform written in PHP with a Laravel framework and uses Vue.js as a frontend Javascript framework. This web application is used as an online store on which you can create and manage thousands of products for your business. In this tutorial, we will install the LAMP stack and configure Bagisto eCommerce to be accessible on the domain.

Installing Bagisto eCommerce on Ubuntu 22.04 is a straightforward process that can take up to 30 minutes. Let’s get started!


  • A server with Ubuntu 22.04 as OS
  • User privileges: root or non-root user with sudo privileges

Step 1. Update the System

We need to update the system packages to the latest versions available.

sudo apt-get update -y && sudo apt-get upgrade -y

Step 2. Install PHP8

To install the PHP8 along with extensions, execute the following command:

sudo apt-get install php8.1 php8.1-cli php8.1-common php8.1-imap php8.1-redis php8.1-snmp php8.1-xml php8.1-zip php8.1-mbstring php8.1-curl libapache2-mod-php

Step 3. Install Apache Web Server

To install the Apache Web server execute the following command:

sudo apt install apache2

Once installed, start and enable the service.

sudo systemctl enable apache2 && sudo systemctl start apache2

Check if the service is up and running:

sudo systemctl status apache2

You should receive the following output:

root@vps:~# sudo systemctl status apache2
● apache2.service - The Apache HTTP Server
     Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/apache2.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)

     Memory: 21.3M
        CPU: 21.761s
     CGroup: /system.slice/apache2.service
             ├─  660 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start

             ├─35104 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start
             ├─35105 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start
             ├─35106 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start
             └─35108 /usr/sbin/apache2 -k start

Step 4. Install MariaDB database server

To install the MariaDB database server, execute the command below.

sudo apt install mariadb-server

Start and enable the mariadb.service with the following commands:

sudo systemctl start mariadb && sudo systemctl enable mariadb

Check the status of the mariadb.service

sudo systemctl status mariadb

You should receive the following output:

root@vps:~# sudo systemctl status mariadb
● mariadb.service - MariaDB 10.6.7 database server
     Loaded: loaded (/lib/systemd/system/mariadb.service; enabled; vendor preset: enabled)
     Active: active (running) since Sun 2022-05-29 18:30:12 UTC; 33s ago
       Docs: man:mariadbd(8)
   Main PID: 42716 (mariadbd)
     Status: "Taking your SQL requests now..."
      Tasks: 16 (limit: 4566)
     Memory: 57.2M
        CPU: 3.249s
     CGroup: /system.slice/mariadb.service
             └─42716 /usr/sbin/mariadbd

Step 5. Create Bagisto database and user

Next, we need to create a Bagisto database, the Bagisto user, and grant the permissions for that user to the database.

 CREATE USER 'bagisto'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'YourStrongPasswordHere';
 GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON bagisto.* TO 'bagisto'@'localhost';

Step 6. Install Composer

p>Install the Composer in order to install Bagisto later.

curl -sS | php -- --install-dir=/usr/bin --filename=composer

Check the Composer installation:


You should receive the following output:

  / ____/___  ____ ___  ____  ____  ________  _____
 / /   / __ \/ __ `__ \/ __ \/ __ \/ ___/ _ \/ ___/
/ /___/ /_/ / / / / / / /_/ / /_/ (__  )  __/ /
\____/\____/_/ /_/ /_/ .___/\____/____/\___/_/
Composer version 2.3.6 2022-06-01 21:57:13

Step 7. Install NodeJS

To install the NodeJS run the following commands:

sudo apt install curl -y

curl -fsSL | sudo -E bash -

apt-get install gcc g++ make -y

sudo apt install nodejs

To check the installed NodeJS version, execute the command below:

node -v

You should receive the following output:

root@host:~# node -v

Step 8. Download and Install Bagisto

We are going to download Bagisto in the default document root of the Apache web server.

cd /var/www/html/



mv bagisto-1.4.3/ bagisto/

Once downloaded and extracted, go into the bagisto directory and use the composer command to begin the installation process.

cd /var/www/html/bagisto

composer install

After successful installation, you should receive the following output:

Package manifest generated successfully.
105 packages you are using are looking for funding.
Use the `composer fund` command to find out more!

The next step is to set the right permissions:

sudo chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/html/bagisto/
sudo chmod -R 755 /var/www/html/bagisto/

Step 9. Create Apache Virtual Host File

Go into the Apache directory and create a configuration file for the Bagisto application.

cd /etc/apache2/sites-available/

touch bagisto.conf

Paste the following lines of code, save the file and close it.

<VirtualHost *:80>
DocumentRoot /var/www/html/bagisto/public

<Directory /var/www/html/bagisto>
AllowOverride All

ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/error.log
CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/access.log combined


Enable the Apache configuration for Bagisto and rewrite the module.

sudo a2enmod rewrite

sudo a2ensite bagisto.conf

Check the syntax:

apachectl -t

You should receive the following output:

root@vps:~# apachectl -t
Syntax OK

If the syntax is OK, restart the Apache service.

systemctl reload apache2

Once the Apache service is restarted, you can finish the Bagisto installation at
