How to install the extension?
Posted by Igor Tkatchenko on 13 August 2013 12:02 PM

 Our modules are deployed with the AITOC Modules Installer. Out of the box, our installer supports only Magento versions greater than 1.4.0.1 (1.4.1.0+). To be able to install the module one lower versions, please, contact our support: https://www.aitoc.com/en/contacts.html?&support

 Please make sure you’ve downloaded extension package compliant with your Magento version. The compliance information is stated in the package filename.

 Once you’ve downloaded and unzipped the archive, please proceed with the following steps:

 

Step 1:

If you have compilation enabled, please disable it before installing the extension. You can check compilation state at System>Tools>Compilation, see “Compiler Status”)

 

Step 2:

Upload the contents of the module package to the Magento root folder. This will not overwrite the existing Magento folders or files, only the new content will be added.

 

Step 3:

Please make sure that the following directories of your Magento and all directories and files inside them have full Read/Write/eXecute permissions (usually 0755 for directories and 0644 for files) while the extension is being installed:

  • app/etc/modules/Aitoc_*.xml

  • app/etc/modules/AdjustWare_*.xml (if exists in the package)

 Once you install the extension, please leave full write permissions (0755 for directories and 0644 for files) only for the following folders and all sub-folders and files inside them:

  • var/ait_*

  • app/etc/modules/Aitoc_*.xml

  • app/etc/modules/AdjustWare_*.xml (if exists in the package)

 * Means all folders, sub-folders and files – i.e. ALL items in the folder

 Same folders should have the same write permissions in case you are moving to another host.

 

Step 4:

Disable cache at System> Cache Management.

 

Step 5. Module Activation:

In Admin area go to System > Manage Aitoc Modules (Please re-login into admin area if you can’t find this menu item).

Check the checkbox against the corresponding extension and click Save modules settings button.

 Sometimes the extension might need additional folder permissions. If so, appropriate notifications will be displayed. If you encounter some issues during installation, please contact us for assistance by submitting a support ticket at the product page.

 

Step 6.

Enable cache at System> Cache Management.

 

Step 7. Mandatory only if you are using custom theme(s).

This step is required only if you are using custom theme/s and module package has the files and folders described below. Note that some modules are only visible at the backend and do not patch frontend design layouts and will not have anything under app/design/frontend/default/default and skin/frontend/default/default. In this case, simply skip this step.

 Otherwise, please copy all files and folders from

 app/design/frontend/{base|default}*/default and

skin/frontend/{base|default}/default from the extension package to the corresponding

 app/design/frontend/[YOUR_CUSTOM_PACKAGE_NAME (usually default)]/[YOUR_THEME_NAME] and skin/frontend/[YOUR_CUSTOM_PACKAGE_NAME (usually default)]/[YOUR_THEME_NAME]

 * {base|default} means base or\and default.

Example 1: if you are using a Modern theme, you will need to copy all files and folders from app/design/frontend/default/default and skin/frontend/default/default from the module package to app/design/frontend/default/modern/ and skin/frontend/default/modern

 Example 2: if you are using Grayscale theme, copy all files and folders from app/design/frontend/default/default and skin/frontend/default/default from the module package to app/design /frontend/esp_photolib/photolib_grayscale/ and skin/frontend/ esp_photolib/photolib_grayscale/

 

Step 8. (Applies only to Installation of the following extensions: Abandoned Carts Alerts Pro, Reviews Booster, MagentoWatchDog, Server Load Monitor.)

Set up a Cron job for Magento with 5 min interval. You can find the manual for Cron job at http://www.magentocommerce.com/wiki/1_-_installation_and_configuration/how_to_setup_a_cron_job

 

Step 9.

After Installation and Activation of the extension, you can set back default permission settings for /app/ folder (Read permissions for webserver for whole /app/ and write permission for webserver for /app/etc/ recursively).

Important: /var/ folder has to be writable for webserver. You can find the info on how to set up permissions for webserver at the Help section of the control panel of your server.

 

Step 10.

Recompile and re-enable compilation if you had it enabled in Step 1.
