How to Install Magento on Ryzen/Linux VPS – FireVPS

Installing Magento on a Ryzen-powered Linux VPS can significantly enhance your e-commerce platform’s performance. Magento is a popular open-source e-commerce platform, and with FireVPS, you can leverage powerful Ryzen processors to ensure your online store runs smoothly and efficiently. In this guide, we’ll provide a step-by-step tutorial on how to install Magento on a Linux VPS.


Before you begin, ensure you have the following:

  1. A Ryzen-powered Linux VPS from FireVPS.
  2. SSH access to your VPS.
  3. A domain name pointed to your VPS.
  4. Basic knowledge of Linux command line.
  5. A LAMP stack (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) installed on your VPS.

Step 1: Access Your VPS

  1. Open your terminal (or use an SSH client like PuTTY).
  2. Connect to your VPS using SSH:
ssh root@your_vps_ip

Step 2: Update Your System

Before installing anything, update your package manager:

sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -y

Step 3: Install Apache

If you don’t have Apache installed, you can install it using the following command:

sudo apt update && sudo apt upgrade -y

Start and enable Apache to run on boot:

sudo systemctl start apache2
sudo systemctl enable apache2

Step 4: Install MySQL

Magento requires a database to store data. Install MySQL using:

sudo apt install mysql-server -y

Secure your MySQL installation:

sudo mysql_secure_installation

Create a database for Magento:

sudo mysql -u root -p

Inside the MySQL prompt, run the following commands:

CREATE USER ‘magentouser’@’localhost’ IDENTIFIED BY ‘yourpassword’;
GRANT ALL PRIVILEGES ON magento.* TO ‘magentouser’@’localhost’;

Step 5: Install PHP

Magento requires PHP. Install PHP and necessary extensions:

sudo apt install php libapache2-mod-php php-mysql php-cli php-common
php-gd php-curl php-intl php-xsl php-mbstring php-zip php-soap php-bcmath -y

Step 6: Configure Apache for Magento

Create a new virtual host configuration file for Magento:

sudo nano /etc/apache2/sites-available/magento.conf

Add the following configuration:


DocumentRoot /var/www/html/magento
Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
AllowOverride All
Order allow,deny
allow from all

ErrorLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/magento_error.log
CustomLog ${APACHE_LOG_DIR}/magento_access.log combined


Enable the new site and rewrite module:

sudo a2ensite magento.conf
sudo a2enmod rewrite
sudo systemctl restart apache2

Step 7: Install Composer

Magento uses Composer for managing dependencies. Install Composer using:

sudo apt install curl -y
curl -sS | php
sudo mv composer.phar /usr/local/bin/composer

Step 8: Download Magento

Navigate to the web root directory and download Magento:

cd /var/www/html
sudo composer create-project –repository-url=
magento/project-community-edition magento

You’ll be prompted for Magento authentication keys, which you can get from the Magento Marketplace.

Step 9: Set the Correct Permissions

Set the correct permissions for Magento:

sudo chown -R www-data:www-data /var/www/html/magento
sudo find /var/www/html/magento -type d -exec chmod 755 {} \;
sudo find /var/www/html/magento -type f -exec chmod 644 {} \;

Step 10: Install Magento

Run the Magento setup script:

cd /var/www/html/magento
sudo bin/magento setup:install \
–base-url= \
–db-host=localhost \
–db-name=magento \
–db-user=magentouser \
–db-password=yourpassword \
–admin-firstname=First \
–admin-lastname=Last \
– \
–admin-user=admin \
–admin-password=admin123 \
–language=en_US \
–currency=USD \
–timezone=America/Chicago \

Step 11: Finalize Installation

Once the installation is complete, configure Apache to serve the Magento directory:

sudo nano /etc/apache2/sites-available/000-default.conf

Change the DocumentRoot to point to /var/www/html/magento:

DocumentRoot /var/www/html/magento

Restart Apache:

sudo systemctl restart apache2
