How to install your store from the software delivered to you?

After your purchase of myEbiz is complete. Our team will build your store and apply any customization you may have requested. Your myEbiz online store will then be delivered to you via this prototype online store.

The file delivered will include software as well as data and custom settings. This file will be compressed using both Unix tools TAR and GZIP. Its extension will be .TGZ and its name will be something like your_store_name.TGZ.

If you decided to host your store using the myEcommerce hosting service, then our support team can install your online store for free.

Prepare to install

Before you can start the install of your online store you need to have all these informations handy because they will be asked to you during the installation process.

Store password:This is the password used to protect the access to your store files. This password will be delivered to you by our development team at the same time that your nyEbiz software is delivered to you.

Database hostname: This is the full name name or IP address of the server where your MySQL database will be hosted. A servername looks like a web site address. Your Database hostname may look like: db.mydomain.com
If you are not sure then please ask the technical support team of the host company you are using.

Database user: This is the username that can be used to access your database

Database password: This is the password for the database user that you provided above.

Target: This is the full path to your "store root directory" on the hosting server. This path will automatically be found by the install/restore program. However you could change it to have your store installed in a different location.

Host: This the web site address of your store. For example: www.mydomain.com

Web dir: This filed should remain empty unless you want to install your store in a sub-folder down from the Target path specified above.

Install Step1: decompress your file

The first step is to decompress and de-archive the file that was delivered to you.
Upload this file to the root directory that is or will be used by your web site.

if you have a telnet access to the server you can type following commands:
cd <website_root_directory>
tar -xzf your_store_name.TGZ

if you do not have telnet access you can just the your hosting account - control panel file manager tool to locate the file, and then click the uncompress tool to uncompress/de-archive the file.

Install Step2: run the install program

Once the the store archive file has been uncompressed and de-archived, open a new browser and type in the address of your site root directory followed by "/admin/install.php"

If the address of your web site is: www.mydomain.com, then you should type in the following address:


then click on the "Enter" key.

The browser will display the following page:

You should read and accept the myEbiz License Agreement, provide the password that was given to you by our support team and then click the "continue" button

Install Step3: Provide server information

Once you provided the archive password, you will need to input all the server information
If this the first time that you run the Install program you will get the following page:
OTHERWISE, if you store has already been installed a while ago and you’re doing a restore of one of the backup file, then you will see the following 2 screens.
First it will ask you to chose a backup file to restore from and then it will ask you to provide all the server information. Please now that when doing a restore, you will also have be able to choose to restore either the database, the files or both.

Install Step4: Chose database name

Choosing the database is the last step.
The database name by default will be the name of the database that is included in the archive file used. If this is a fresh install, then you will first need to create a database and provide its name here in the “other database name” field like it is shown in the picture below:
Be careful, like the big RED WARNING says the database chosen  will be deleted and recreated and so all its content will be lost.

Install Step5: Completion

Once the database name chosen, the restore process will start and displays a trace similar to the one below:
Once the process is complete it will display the links to the Front-end and to the Admin back-end.
Last: Update of your cron jobs list
In order to get and set your automated processes (backup, statistics, ...)
you need to add the following script cron to your cron list for that site:

40 2 * * *  cd $docroot &&   php -f cron_product_feeds.php > /dev/null
41 2 * * *  cd $docroot &&   php -f cron_estimates.php > /dev/null
40 23 * * *  cd $docroot && php  -f cron_backup.php > /dev/null
41 23 * * *  cd $docroot && php  -f cron_sitemap.php > /dev/null
42 23 1,2 * * cd $docroot && php -f cron_statistics.php > /dev/null
43 23 * * *  cd $docroot && php -f cron_bot_ds.php > /dev/null
50 23 * * * find /var/log/* -mtime +7 -exec rm -f \;
The variable “docroot” is the full path to the root dir of your website. You should get that information from your server administrator.
