In this post, we will show you how to install the Bagisto E-Commerce platform on an Ubuntu 20.04 server.

Prerequisites

  • An Ubuntu 20.04 VPS (we’ll be using our SSD 2 VPS plan)
  • Access to the root user account (or access to an admin account with root privileges)

Log in to the Server & Update the Server OS Packages

First, log in to your Ubuntu 20.04 server via SSH as the root user:

ssh root@IP_Address -p Port_number

You will need to replace ‘IP_Address’ and ‘Port_number’ with your server’s respective IP address and SSH port number. Additionally, replace ‘root’ with the username of the admin account if necessary.

Before starting, you have to make sure that all Ubuntu 20.04 OS packages installed on the server are up to date. You can do this by running the following commands:

apt-get update -y

Install LAMP Server

Before starting, the LAMP stack must be installed on your server. If not installed, you can install it using the following command:

apt-get install apache2 mariadb-server php libapache2-mod-php php-common php-mysql php-gmp php-curl php-intl php-mbstring php-xmlrpc php-gd php-bcmath php-imap php-xml php-cli php-zip curl unzip git -y

Once the LAMP stack is installed, edit the php.ini file and modify some default settings:

nano /etc/php/7.4/apache2/php.ini

Change the following lines:

memory_limit = 256M
upload_max_filesize = 100M
max_execution_time = 360
date.timezone = America/Chicago

Save and close the file then restart the Apache service to apply the changes:

systemctl restart apache2

Create Bagisto Database

Bagisto uses MySQL/MariaDB to store its contents. So you will need to create a database and user for Bagisto.

First, log in to MariaDB with the following command:

mysql

Once login, create a database and user with the following command:

MariaDB [(none)]> CREATE DATABASE bagistodb;
MariaDB [(none)]> CREATE USER 'bagistouser'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'securepassword';

Next, grant all the privileges to the Bagisto database using the command below:

MariaDB [(none)]> GRANT ALL ON bagistodb.* TO 'bagistouser'@'localhost' WITH GRANT OPTION;

Next, flush the privileges and exit from the MariaDB with the following command:

MariaDB [(none)]> FLUSH PRIVILEGES;
MariaDB [(none)]> EXIT;

Install Node.js

You will also need to install Node.js to your server. First, add the Node source repository using the following command:

curl -sL https://deb.nodesource.com/setup_14.x | bash -

Next, install the Node.js with the following command:

apt-get install nodejs -y

Once Node.js is installed, verify the Node.js version using the following command:

node -v

You should see the following output:

v14.17.4

Download Bagisto

First, you will need to install the Composer for managing PHP dependencies. You can install it with the following command:

curl -sS https://getcomposer.org/installer | php -- --install-dir=/usr/local/bin --filename=composer

Next, download the latest version of Bagisto using the following command:

wget https://github.com/bagisto/bagisto/archive/refs/tags/v1.3.1.zip

Once the download is completed, unzip the downloaded file with the following command:

unzip v1.3.1.zip

Next, move the extracted directory to the Apache web root directory:

mv bagisto-1.3.1 /var/www/html/bagisto

Next, navigate to Bagisto directory and install the PHP dependencies using the following command:

cd /var/www/html/bagisto
composer install

Once all the PHP dependencies are installed, set proper ownership to Bagisto directory:

chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/html/bagisto/

Configure Apache for Bagisto

Next, you will need to create an Apache virtual host configuration file for Bagisto. You can create it with the following command:

nano /etc/apache2/sites-available/bagisto.conf

Add the following lines:

<VirtualHost *:80>
     ServerAdmi admin@example.com
     DocumentRoot /var/www/html/bagisto/public
     ServerName bagisto.example.com

     <Directory /var/www/html/bagisto/public/>
          Options FollowSymlinks
          AllowOverride All
          Require all granted
     </Directory>

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

Save and close the file then activate the Bagisto virtual host and rewrite module with the following command:

a2ensite bagisto.conf
a2enmod rewrite

Next, restart the Apache service to apply the changes:

systemctl restart apache2
