Get Magento 2.1 running – the definitive guide

Published on 22 Jun 2016 , edited on 22 Mar 2019

The dust is starting to settle around the release of Magento 2 – the biggest open-source e-commerce packet available. Fate would have it that I’m getting more and more enrolled in the development of, with and applying this system for clients. So mainly for my own learnings this is a work-in-progress guide on all the steps one needs to take to install Magento 2.1.

  • Get your server ready (preferbly ngninx)
  • You’ll need SSH, GIT, Composer, Node.JS, Grunt and Varnish
  • Install Magento via Composer
  • Configure Grunt and Composer (sample files in the root of the installation)
  • Have at it!


Short notes and snippets as reminders for myself and my work.
