Magento is an open-source e-commerce platform written in PHP for e-commerce web sites. Magento employs the MySQL/MariaDB relational database management system, the PHP programming language, and elements of the Zend Framework. It applies the conventions of object-oriented programming and model–view–controller architecture. Magento also uses the entity–attribute–value model to store data.

Hi,
how can I backup my entire root server (UBUNTU 16)? It is hosted at MITTWALD. It is installed and configured (MAGENTO shop), now I want to backup the whole server with the possibility to restore it easily. I am not sure what is the best way to do this and I hope to get some good ideas.
Info: From the hosters console it is not possible to create backups.

Thank you!

I am trying to build a sunglasses store in Magento 2. Here is the issue I am facing:

Lets call the sunglass model DUDE.

The DUDE can have: RED, BLUE and WHITE frames.
The DUDE can have: YELLOW, BLACK or BLUE lenses.

We are currently struggling to figure out how we can add the DUDE as a single product with 2 color configurations. We don't want to have 3 products named DUDE-RED, DUDE-BLUE, DUDE-WHITE.

Currently I am not able to figure out how to enter 1 product that has 2 color configurations.

Please help experts = )

I'm a Cyber Security major and I met a small business that wants an ecommerce site. I've wanted to learn Magneto, so I'm going to postpone my current projects and I wanted to learn Magneto to build the sites. I make $200 a week and I pay my rent, so I was going to build the site for $300 so I can put it on my resume.

https://sherocommerce.com/how-much-does-a-magento-website-cost-general-pricing-guidelines-and-what-to-look-for/#mhost

I read the above link and it said a college student or a PHP Developer cannot create a Magneto website.

Is it unrealistic to think I could learn Magneto to create a site for a small business in 2018?

As far as hosting, I was going to recommend a $5 1GB Linode. I manage servers for my current job, so I will apply updates and manage the server for them for free, then when I need to update to a new version of GNU/Linux I will charge them a fee to do so.


I really want to learn Magneto. If this is possible can you link some good sites to learn Magneto?

If not I guess I will check out Wordpress.

Hi folks

We support a Magento shop for which we recently enabled Nginx as a front end. All is good, however the Wordpress blog located at ./blog is being ignored, instead Magento tries to serve the location, and ends up in a 404.

I know this is due to the Nginx config not correctly redirecting for the /blog folder, but I don't know enough about Nginx to fix it.

There is a .htaccess file in the /blog folder, which looks like this:
# BEGIN WordPress
<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
RewriteEngine On
RewriteBase /blog/
RewriteRule ^index\.php$ - [L]
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteRule . /blog/index.php [L]
</IfModule>

# END WordPress

Open in new window


However this is now being ignored.  I have tried to add various bits of code to the Nginx config to no avail.  Please can someone fix my Nginx config to allow the Wordpress blog to work.  Either by redirecting to the correct index.php, or just excluding the /blog path from Nginx and allowing Apache to do it's thing.

This is on a Plesk-controlled CentOS server, so shared hosting is involved.  Here is the current NGINX config:
## These locations would be hidden by .htaccess normally
location ^~ /app/                { deny all; }
location ^~ /includes/           { deny all; }
location ^~ /lib/                { deny all; }
location ^~ /media/downloadable/ { deny all; }
location ^~ /pkginfo/            { deny all; }
location ^~ /report/config.xml   { deny all; }
location ^~ /var/

We have a new site under development, running on Magento 1.9.3.1 and are looking for an extension that allows customers to "Make an offer" for a product.  There are many of these extensions out there, however we have not been able to locate one that works with CONFIGURABLE PRODUCTS. All of the products in our store are configurable and NOT simple products.

Can anyone recommend a well-performing extension of this nature that meets the following criteria:

1.  Works with configurable products
2. Allows a NON logged-in site visitor to make an offer ie. does not require registration and login first.

Thanks!

Hello everyone,

I am needing to remove UPS, Ground, Free Shipping etc whenever a certain product is in the cart or checkout.  I was able to remove the free shipping class when products with a Freight class are set in the back end.

The other challenge is the logic then to make sure if the same product going to CA lands in the $300 class but if it is going to GA then it should ship in the Freight_250 class. Im thinking that maybe that can be removed thru magento? But still would need the UPS and Ground etc whenever a Freight_class isnt showing.

The product is the Product Martrix Extension.

Thank you all!

I have a magento website in which I need to change the footer. I see the address change on the actual design area of the settings and I change it but it does not change the footer address. Do I need to get into the actual files to change it or am I missing the area in which I change that information?

I'm using Magento and when I log the queries I get , e.g
SQL: INSERT INTO `catalog_product_entity_varchar` (`entity_type_id`,`attribute_id`,`store_id`,`entity_id`,`value`) VALUES (?, ?, ?, ?, ?), (?, ?, ?, ?, ?), (?, ?, ?, ?, ?), (?, ?, ?, ?, ?), (?, ?, ?, ?, ?), (?, ?, ?, ?, ?) 
BIND: array (
  0 => 4,
  1 => 85,
  2 => 0,
  3 => 243,
  4 => '/b/b/bb1052wrb_6.gif',
  5 => 4,
  6 => 86, etc, etc

Is there a handy-dandy way of getting the sql with the placeholders replaced by the values so i can tug it apart easily?

I have the following mysql query which find duplicate urls in Magento 1. I would like to run an update query which will add a unique value onto the end of any duplicate urls ('value' in the query), probably just -1, -2, -3 etc for each duplicate it finds.

Could someone advise on how to do?

SELECT COUNT(DISTINCT entity_id) AS amount, `value`, entity_id FROM catalog_product_entity_varchar v WHERE EXISTS ( SELECT * FROM eav_attribute a WHERE attribute_code = "url_key" AND v.attribute_id = a.attribute_id AND EXISTS ( SELECT * FROM eav_entity_type e WHERE entity_type_code = "catalog_product" AND a.entity_type_id = e.entity_type_id ) ) GROUP BY v.VALUE HAVING `amount` > 1 ORDER BY `amount` DESC

Hi Experts

Could you explain if PHP Magento use is always interactive?

After a quick view over its features - even it has an MVC architecture, the configurations looks to be only by use of interactive menus.
Any programation is needed, so? or optionally it could be done?

Thanks in advance.

Hello there,

I have a question. I'm using magento 1.9 and I have a problem to figure out how to menage and solve this problem.

Basically, I have one product. Inside this product, I want to put another product with the quantity selection too. Right now, I made my page and I load a product with the basic custom options -> chechbox. This works fine, but I would like to give the options to the costumer to select two different quantity.

Think about a ticket, you can buy 4 ticket but just for 2 you want the special options.

I also tried the grouped products. But I don't want to make 3 product every time (one grouped product, one specific ticket, and the one special option). If I do this, I should make one grouped product and maybe I will load dynamically by id the two products in the page. So that, I will have one grouped products for all the products that I want to use with this options.

So, because I'm making my own phtml page, I'm looking if there is any specific code to put the checkbox options manually inside with the quantity too. The ticket will change, but this options would be static.

Ex: show_product.phtml

<?php

$_GET["event"];
$sku = $_GET["event"];

 $vPath = $sku.".html";
 $oRewrite = Mage::getModel('core/url_rewrite')
 ->setStoreId(Mage::app()->getStore()->getId())
 ->loadByRequestPath($vPath);

  $iProductId = $oRewrite->getProductId();
  $oProduct = Mage::getModel('catalog/product')->load($iProductId);

  $id = $iProductId;

  //get id

I need a responsive theme for the now unsupported Magento Professional ver. 1.10.0.2.

There are many themes out there but I can't find anything that says it supports Magento ver. 1.10.0.2.  Ideally, I'd like something that is free.

If this does not exist, is there a reasonably easy way to adapt other designs to 1.10?

I have a Magento website which synchronises with a back end POS system (plug-in install guide).

I'm trying to determine why the sync is not working (I cannot get support from the POS provider).

The debug shows

2017-09-04T04:55:02+00:00 DEBUG (7):  Starting products import.
2017-09-04T04:55:02+00:00 DEBUG (7):  Initialised "retail" model.

What could be causing this? NO sync is running. How can I determine what the locking process is? etc

When the plug-in is installed on a fresh vanilla  Magento 1.9 install it works and products sync.

Working debug ->

2017-09-04T04:43:03+00:00 DEBUG (7):  Starting products import.

Hi

I have a friend who is asking for a client :) about their Magento site.  They currently are using Magento 1.14.3.4  Enterprise.

They have a few questions.

1)  Is 1.14.3.4 the most current version of Magento Enterprise?
2)  When is the "end of life"for this version of Magento Enterprise.
3)  Is Magento 2 what they will need to upgrade to?   Or are there other Magento Enterprise options?

Thanks!

hi, I managed to create a magento module with a custom collection.
I have now to import a CSV file into the database as a part of module initialisation, so I'm using
Varien_File_Csv() 

Open in new window

Given
$content = $helper->getFileContents($path); //Varien_File_Csv() 

Open in new window


I'm looping into content in this way, as I want discard duplicates rows from the csv. So I thought about pushing data into an array before saving.

foreach ($content as $row){
  
if (!in_array(getManagerName($row), $managers)){  

        $managersModel->setName(getManagerName($row));
        try {
            $managersModel->save();
        } catch (Exception $e){
        }
        $managers[$managersModel->getId()]= getManagerName($row);
        $managersModel->unsetData();
    }
}

Open in new window


Question is, is there any other faster or better approach I could use to limit db transaction eg: saving the entire collection after removing duplicates?
thanks

I need to get a basic install of Magento  up - so I decided to use the Azure 'Magento CE v1.9.1.0 on Ubuntu 14.04LTS'.

When I browse to the IP of the VM Magento returns error

"There has been an error processing your request
Exception printing is disabled by default for security reasons.

Error log record number: 1489044056301"

When I look at error  1489044056301 in /var/www/magento/var/report$

It shows:


[b]a:4:{i:0;s:107:"SQLSTATE[HY000] [2002] Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/var/run/mysqld/mysqld.sock' (2)";i:1;s:2280:"#0 [/b]

Open in new window


Stumbled at the first hurdle. Why is it not connected to MYSQL?

The readme file says to start mysql but it alreay appears to be started.


I thought I would simply need to start the VM.

Anyone with experience with this Azure Template/VM got a quick answer?

Hello,
 
I would like to change my layered navigation so users can only selected 1 item per drop down.
 
as a bonus, I would like it to behave like old style ajax menus
I have 4 different drop down menus in my layered navigation and they are all attributes. Ideally, the first drop down would cause the second drop down to populate, the second -> populate third drop down, the third -> populate fourth drop down. Is it possible to modify my layered navigation to behave this way? What files and functions could i modify to accomplish this?
0
I need to modify how products are displayed in the layered navigation and search results. I have many products that have the same attribute value so I want to add a GROUP BY so only one of each products displays if they have the same attribute value. What page and functions do I modify to add this?

I'm doing a B2B site where customers frequently go in and out of 'on hold', and the doddery old accounts staff are not really up to clearing the cache, is there a quick way to update an attribute and clear the cache  only for that attribute change in one go?
