Magento installer for ubuntu 9.04

OpenERP Appliance & All-In-One & Magento Forum

This script automates the setting up of Magento on Ubuntu 9.0.4 Server & Desktop.

New update! Magento installer

Magento ( is an Open Source ecommerce web application.

Requirements: A fresh installation of Ubuntu 9.0.4 Server or Desktop without Apache nor Mysql. Only the core of the system is needed, so during the installation of your Ubuntu Server don’t select software to install like LAMP Server in the “Software Selection” menu (except for OpenSSH Server). This script installs Apache, PHP and Mysql; and expects to deal with default config files.
TIP: test this script within a Virtual Machine after installing Ubuntu 9.04 from scratch. Run the virtual machine in a bridged network (host and guest have same subnet and can be reached from the LAN).

Run the script as non-root with the following commands:

$ gzip -d
$ chmod +x
$ ./

You will be asked for:
1) Mysql root password
2) IP address your OpenERP Web service will be listening on
3) Magento Admin username & Password
4) Your LANG, etc.

Magento Translations can be found at

Example of how to install the Spanish (Spain) translation with modern theme (Full package Download):

sudo apt-get install unzip -y
sudo cp -r app/locale/es_ES/ /var/www/magento/app/locale/
sudo cp -r app/design/frontend/default/modern/locale/es_ES/ /var/www/magento/app/design/frontend/default/default/locale/
sudo chown -R www-data.www-data /var/www/magento/app

Refresh Magento Cache from Magento Admin Panel -> System-> Cache Management

The output of the script ends with:

MySQL “root” Administrator Password: mysqlpassword
MySQL Database Name for Magento = magentodb
MySQL Database Administrator for Magento = magentodbadmin
MySQL Database Administrator’s Password for Magento = magentodbpasswd

Magento Admin Username = admin
Magento Admin Password = password
Magento Admin First Name: myfirstname
Magento Admin Last Name: mylastname
Magento Admin Email Address:

Magento default locale = en_US
Magento default timezone = America/Los_Angeles
Magento default currency = USD
