Prerequisite

How to Install and Configure a PrestaShop CMS

To install an online store with PrestaShop, follow these steps:

  1. Go to CMS/Applications > Other CMS:
  1. Click on the PrestaShop logo icon or on the Install icon to open this window:
  1. With the PROTOCOL drop-down list, select the desired secure or non-secure protocol.
  2. With the DOMAIN drop-down list, select the domain that you want to associate to the site.
  3. In the DIRECTORY field, define the name of the File Manager directory in which the CMS files should be kept.
  4. Fill in the ADMIN EMAIL field (the administrator will receive a confirmation e-mail when the site will have been created).
  5. In the ADMIN USERNAME field, enter the name of the user who will be the administrator of the site.
  6. Fill in the PASSWORD field. Write the password down and keep it in a safe place.
  7. In the SITE NAME field, enter the name that your site will have. The name has to comply with SEO standards.
  8. In the BACK OFFICE APPLICATION ADMIN FOLDER (OPTIONAL) field, do not use the name proposed by default. To confuse hackers, it is better to create another one.
  9. Click on the Install button when you are ready to create your site.
  10. A message is displayed to indicate that the installation is in progress:

13. The installation is complete when it appears under All Installations.

14. Verify that the administrator has received a confirmation email from Softaculous:

  1. Confirm that the new folder has been created in the File Manager under the Path that appears in the email (see the article N0C FileManager if needed):
