Installing Magento Via SSH

Installing Magento With The Full Download

Installing Into The Website Document Root

I took this content from the Magento WIKI page, since they have removed the Search feature for the Magento WIKI's I figured it would be easier to find this way for myself and others! Since this Post will soon become outdated, I must tell you to change the version number for your download. i.e. if you want version 1.5.1 you will put magento- When version 1.7 comes out you will need magento-
tar -zxvf magento-
mv magento/* magento/.htaccess .
chmod -R o+w media var
chmod o+w app/etc
rm -rf magento/ magento-

Install Magento using the downloader

tar -zxvf magento-downloader-
rm -rf magento-downloader-

Install into a Subdirectory

For this install you only need to replace SUBDIRECTORY below (two times) with the name of the subdirectory that you want Magento installed in.
tar -zxvf magento-downloader-
rm -rf magento-downloader-

Installing Magento With The Downloader & Sample Data

Installing into the Root Web Directory

tar -zxvf magento-downloader-
tar -zxvf magento-sample-data-1.2.0.tar.gz
mv magento-sample-data-1.2.0/media/* magento/media/
mv magento-sample-data-1.2.0/magento_sample_data_for_1.2.0.sql magento/data.sql
mv magento/* magento/.htaccess .
chmod -R o+w media
mysql -h DBHOST -u DBUSER -p'DBPASS' DBNAME < data.sql
./mage mage-setup .
./mage install magento-core/Mage_All_Latest-stable
chmod o+w var app/etc
rm -rf magento/ magento-sample-data-1.2.0/
rm -rf magento-downloader- magento-sample-data-1.2.0.tar.gz data.sql
