Step-by-Step Guide: Installing Magento 2 with Docker

How to Set Up a Magento2 Development Environment with Docker on Windows or Mac

Docker is a popular platform that allows you to automate the deployment and management of applications within containers. It provides an efficient way to set up development environments by creating isolated containers with specific configurations. In this article, we will guide you through the process of setting up a development environment using Docker on both Windows and Mac operating systems.

Before we begin, make sure you have Docker installed on your machine. You can download Docker for Windows or Mac from the official Docker website and follow the installation instructions specific to your operating system.

Once Docker is successfully installed, you can proceed with the following steps:

Step 1: Create a Docker container Open your preferred terminal or command prompt and enter the following command:

docker container create -ti --name konnectup -p 80:80 -p 22:22 ubuntu:20.04

This command creates a new Docker container named “konnectup” using the Ubuntu 20.04 image. It also maps host ports 80 and 22 to container ports 80 and 22 respectively, allowing access to web services and SSH.

Step 2: Install Nginx Within the terminal or command prompt, execute the following command to install Nginx:

apt-get install nginx

Nginx is a popular web server and reverse proxy that will be used in our development environment.

Step 3: Install Vim To install the Vim text editor, run the following command:

apt-get install -y vim

Vim is a highly configurable text editor that programmers often use for writing and editing code.

Step 4: Install sudo Enter the command below to install the sudo package:

apt-get install -y sudo

Sudo allows users to execute commands with administrative privileges.

Step 5: Install required packages To install necessary packages and dependencies, run the following command:

sudo apt install lsb-release ca-certificates apt-transport-https software-properties-common -y

This command ensures that the required packages are installed for the subsequent steps.

Step 6: Add PHP repository Execute the following command to add the PHP repository:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ondrej/php

This step is necessary to access the latest PHP packages.

Step 7: Install PHP and required extensions Run the following commands to install PHP version 8.2 and its extensions:

sudo apt install php8.2
sudo apt -y install php8.2-fpm
sudo apt -y install php8.2-cli
<... continue installing the remaining PHP extensions as listed in the provided commands ...>

These commands install PHP 8.2 and a comprehensive list of PHP extensions required for most web development projects.

Step 8: Install MariaDB To install the MariaDB database server and client, enter the following command:

apt install mariadb-server mariadb-client -y

MariaDB is a popular open-source relational database management system.

Step 9: Enable MariaDB service To enable the MariaDB service to start automatically on system boot, run the command:

systemctl enable mariadb.service

Enabling the service ensures that MariaDB starts whenever the system boots up.

Step 10: Install Git Execute the following command to install Git:

apt -y install git

Git is a widely used version control system for tracking changes in source code during software development.

Step 11: Install SSH To install the SSH package, run the command:

apt -y install ssh

SSH (Secure Shell) allows secure remote access to the Docker container.

Step 12: Install Elasticsearch Please refer to the link provided for detailed instructions on how to install and configure Elasticsearch on Ubuntu 22.04: Link to Elasticsearch Installation Guide

Step 13: Install Composer Follow the link provided for a quickstart guide on installing Composer 2 on Ubuntu 20.04: Link to Composer Installation Guide

By following these steps, you will have successfully set up a development environment using Docker on your Windows or Mac machine. You can now start developing and testing your applications within the isolated and easily manageable containers provided by Docker. Happy coding!

How to Install MariaDB on Ubuntu: A Step-by-Step Guide

Title: How to Install MariaDB on Ubuntu: A Comprehensive Guide for Professionals

Introduction: This comprehensive guide provides step-by-step instructions on installing MariaDB on a Vultr Ubuntu cloud server. Suitable for professionals, this guide is applicable to Ubuntu 16.04 through Ubuntu 20.10 LTS versions. MariaDB, a robust and feature-rich relational database management system, serves as a drop-in replacement for MySQL.

  1. Deploying Ubuntu Server Before proceeding with the installation, deploy a new instance of the Ubuntu Vultr cloud server. Follow the best practices guides listed below to ensure a secure and optimized setup:
  • Create a sudo user
  • Update the Ubuntu server
  • Switch to the sudo user for the remaining steps
  1. Installing MariaDB To install MariaDB and set it up as a replacement for MySQL, execute the following commands in the terminal:
$ sudo apt install mariadb-server mariadb-client -y

Enable MariaDB to start automatically during system boot with the following command:

$ sudo systemctl enable mariadb.service

To secure the MariaDB installation, run the MySQL Secure Installation script:

$ sudo mysql_secure_installation

During the script execution, respond to the security questions as follows:

  • For the initial root password, press ENTER as there is no password set.
  • When prompted, set a new password for the root account and confirm it.
  • Press ENTER to remove the anonymous user.
  • Disallow remote root logins by pressing ENTER.
  • Press ENTER to remove the test database.
  • Reload the privilege tables by pressing ENTER.
  1. Testing the Installation Ensure the installation was successful by connecting to the MariaDB server as the root user:
$ mysql -u root -p -h localhost

Within the MariaDB client, create a test user and a test database:

> CREATE USER 'test_user'@'localhost' IDENTIFIED BY 'test_pass';
> CREATE DATABASE test_database;

Grant the test user all privileges on the test database:

> GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON test_database.* TO 'test_user'@'localhost';

Exit the MariaDB client:

> quit

Conclusion: Congratulations! You have successfully installed MariaDB on a Vultr Ubuntu cloud server. For further information and advanced usage, refer to the official MariaDB documentation.

Mysql Expedite Access

Reading table information for completion of table and column names. You can turn off this feature to get a quicker startup with -A

To read table information for completion of table and column names, you can follow these steps:

  1. Connect to the database: Use a database management tool or programming language to establish a connection to the database where the tables are stored. This typically involves providing the necessary credentials such as username, password, host, and port.
  2. Retrieve the list of tables: Once connected to the database, you can execute a query to retrieve the list of tables available in the database. The exact query syntax may vary depending on the database system you are using. For example, in SQL, you can use the following query:sqlCopy codeSELECT table_name FROM information_schema.tables WHERE table_schema = 'your_schema'; Replace ‘your_schema’ with the actual schema name where your tables are located.
  3. Retrieve column information for a specific table: Once you have the list of tables, you can choose a specific table for which you want to retrieve the column names. Execute a query to fetch the column information for that table. Again, the query syntax may vary depending on the database system.In SQL, you can use the following query:sqlCopy codeSELECT column_name FROM information_schema.columns WHERE table_name = 'your_table'; Replace ‘your_table’ with the actual table name for which you want to retrieve column names.
  4. Process the retrieved information: Once you execute the query, you will receive the list of column names for the selected table. You can process this information in your application or use it for completing your table and column names.

Remember to adapt the queries based on the specific database system you are using. Additionally, note that the above steps assume you have appropriate access privileges to read table and column information from the database.
