How can Magento be installed on Cloud sites?

The basic requirement to Install Magento on a web server is basically less advanced than WordPress. As we basically want to Install Magento, we need to check certain things for a server depending on the load. It is better to use a Cloud Server or a Traditional VPS to Install Magento. Read through to know how can Magento be installed on Cloud sites.

Steps to Install Magento on  Cloud Sites

Download Magento to Install Magento

 One cannot use the Console for Cloud Sites by default, you can ask the Support to use wget command to dump it somewhere within your account’s territory and untar it because if you upload the untar-ed version of Magento using SFTP client it will take a huge time to get uploaded on the server. But if you do not want to request Support, click on the link to go to the download page and Select tar.gz version under Full Release sub header.

Add the needed domain or sub domain to Install Magento

Login to your Cloud Account and Click Cloud Sites Under Hosting. In order to Install Magento if you need to add a new domain , simply type the domain name with extension and  if  you want to install Magento on a subdomain, type the intended name of subdomain you want to Install Magento. If you already own the domain where you will Install Magento, click add a new site, some prompt will show up and you need to click it. You will need to point the name-servers to and from the account where you have registered your domain name. Within few minutes your domain will be ready to install Install Magento. Go to the domain address from browser to check whether it is ready and you will get a ‘Your Website is Ready’ webpage. This is the default automated index.html page generated by the system.

Add SQL database to Install Magento

Click the name of the intended domain name where you will install and click the features tab and then click the Add button. Copy the full name, including the name you are giving and the highlighted part given in the screenshot by opening any text editor like Notepad. Click the Continue button and in the same way give a user name and copy paste it as Username and Password on your text editor. The database will be created within few minutes. And if you click the Database name you have created this page.

Final steps to Install Magneto

It is good if you have already dumped the untar-ed version of  Magento somewhere on your hosting space after requesting the support otherwise use any SFTP client to point towards the new web folder. First delete that index.html thing that will be there. Then, copy all the contents inside Magento folder and paste them to /web/content/ so that when you type on browser address bar , the LICENSE.txt is accessible from any browser.It  might take few hours only to copy the files if you are coping from hard disk. Go to /web/content/errors/ folder and rename the file local.xml.sample to local.xml, after transfer is complete. Now simply open your browser and go to either your domain name or to equivalent URL and insert the data from your Notepad to Install Magento. Magento is very slow to react because of its hugely distributed files. Then click on the I Agree step, continue and finally the page opens.
