Installing Magento 2 with PuPHPet
Head over to PuPHPet and setup a machine using the config.yaml file. To do this you can drag the file from your machine onto the PuPHPet homepage then click through the steps and download.
Once you have extracted the file PuPHPet has provided you with create a
magento2 directory, then provision Vagrant.
cd ~/path/to/PuPHPet mkdir ./magento2 vagrant up
Once that has finished running, it may take around 15/20 minutes, move into your
magento2 directory, remove the
html folder and replace with the magento2 repository. Once Magento2 has downloaded lets install composer.
cd magento2 rm -rf html git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:magento/magento2.git html cd html composer install
Once that is all okay, you will need to add the following line into your hosts file:
sudo vim /etc/hosts 192.168.56.101 magento2.dev
Now you should be able to access your machine in the browser using the URL magento2.dev. You can install Magento from here, however this didn’t work for me. I had to SSH into my Vagrant Box and install Magento using their new tool.
cd ~/path/to/PuPHPet vagrant ssh cd /var/www/magento2/html bin/magento setup:install --db-host=localhost --db-name=magento --db-user=root --db-password=123 --base-url=http://magento2.dev/ --backend-frontname=admin --admin-firstname=Admin --admin-lastname=admin --email@example.com --admin-user=admin --admin-password=password
It looks like Magento2 uses the OyeJorge Less library to compile it’s css. If your CSS isn’t loading you will need to compile that. I just bumped up my max execution time and loaded each file manually in the browser to be sure.
Done, Magento 2 should now be working!
