Setting up a Database

    1. Log into cPanel and using the MySQL Database Wizard, set up a blank database for your new Magento installation. Be sure to make note of the database credentials as we’ll have to use them later on in the installation process. Here’s the credentials we’ve used:
      Database name inmoti6_magento
      Database User inmoti6_mageusr
      Databse User Password ***** ** (We’ve left out our password to protect the security of our database

Download Magento Install Package

    1. Download the Magento install package from the Magento website:
    2. Under the “Full Release” section, select any of the files under “Select your format” and click “Download

Upload Magento

    1. Now, using the cPanel File Manager upload the compressed package you just downloaded from the Magento website. Upload it in the same directory you wish to install Magento in. In our example we’re installing Magento in a subdomain called “” so we’re uploading the .zip file to the root folder for that subdomain.

    1. In File Manager, right-click on the .zip file and extract the file to the current location.
    2. This will create a folder called “magento”. We need to move the contents of the “magento” folder to the parent folder above. If we do not do this step our store will install in the“” location instead of “”. Open the Magento folder, and “select all” files and folders.
    3. Right-click with the files selected and select “move”. Change the “move” location to the parent folder above the “magento” folder

# php_value memory_limit 256M
