You can have one build system that meets the following requirements:
All Commerce code is under source control in the same repository as the development and production systems
Make sure all of the following are included in source control:
generateddirectory (and subdirectories)
pub/media/wysiwygdirectory (and subdirectories)
pub/staticdirectory (and subdirectories)
Must have a compatible PHP version installed
Must have Composer installed
It has file system ownership and permissions set as discussed in Prerequisite for your development, build, and production systems.
The build system does not need Commerce to be installed, but the code must be available to it.
The database connection not required if it is already contained in
config.php; see Export the configuration. Otherwise, the database connection is required.
The build machine can be on its own host or on the same host as an installed Commerce system.
The following sections discuss how to configure the build machine.
First, check if Composer is already installed:
In a command prompt, enter any of the following commands:
composer list --help
If command help displays, Composer is already installed.
If an error displays, use the following steps to install Composer.
To install Composer:
Change to or create an empty directory on your Commerce server.
Enter the following commands:
curl -sS https://getcomposer.org/installer | php
mv composer.phar /usr/local/bin/composer
For additional installation options, see the Composer installation documentation.
To set up the build system:
Log in to the build system as, or switch to, the file system owner.
Retrieve the Commerce code from source control.
If you use Git, use the following command:
git clone [-b <branch name>] <repository URL>
Change to the Commerce root directory and enter:
Wait for dependencies to update.
chown -R <Commerce file system owner name>:<web server username> .
chown -R commerce-username:apache .
If you use Git, open
.gitignore in a text editor.
Start each of the following lines with a
# character to comment them out:
# app/etc/config.php # pub/media/* # generated/* # pub/media/*.* # pub/media/wysiwyg/* # pub/static/*
Save your changes to
.gitignore and exit the text editor.
If you use Git, use the following commands to commit the change:
git add .gitignore && git commit -m "Modify .gitignore for build and production"
.gitignore reference for more information.
bin/magento deploy:mode:set <mode>
<mode> is required. It can be either
