This article will explain how you can setup the latest version of WooCommerce on Hypernode as easy as possible.
Upgrade your PHP version
WooCommerce supports a wide range of PHP versions, but for this article we'll choose the highest possible version. Run the following command to upgrade to PHP 8.1:
$ hypernode-systemctl settings php_version 8.1
Upgrade your MySQL version
To make sure you're on MySQL 8.0, run the following command:
hypernode-systemctl settings mysql_version 8.0
Setting your NGINX vhost type
To be able to host WooCommerce on Hypernode you need to set your vhost type to 'wordpress':
$ hypernode-manage-vhosts mynode.hypernode.io --type wordpress INFO: Managing configs for mynode.hypernode.io INFO: Writing HTTP config for mynode.hypernode.io INFO: Writing HTTPS config for mynode.hypernode.io
To install WooCommerce, there are two options:
- Using our preinstall command-line tool
- Installing WooCommerce manually
Download and install WooCommerce using the preinstall
On Hypernode we offer an easy way to install WooCommerce using one of our pre-install presets. Use the following command to install WooCommerce:
$ hypernode-systemctl preinstall woocommerce
To follow the progress of the preinstall, run the program livelog.
Installing WooCommerce manually
First you need to create a database for the WooCommerce application and create some directories:
$ echo create database woocommerce | mysql $ mkdir -p /data/web/wordpress $ Backup public directory. If the directory is empty or wasn't being used, feel free to remove it instead. $ test -d /data/web/public && mv /data/web/public /data/web/public.bak $ ln -s /data/web/wordpress /data/web/public
Now we can start downloading, configuring and installing the base for WooCommerce onto the Hypernode.
$ ~/wordpress $ wp core download $ # Please check your mysql password at ~/.my.cnf for the next step $ wp core config --dbhost='localhost' --dbuser='app' --dbpass='your_mysql_password' --dbprefix='wp_' $ wp core install --admin_user='mynode_admin' --admin_password='insecure_wp_password' --email@example.com' --url='https://mynode.hypernode.io' --title='My WooCommerce Shop'
At this point, you should be able to access your application at 'https://mynode.hypernode.io', but you'll note that it's just a WordPress site. To change that into a WooCommerce site, run the following commands:
$ # Optional: before installing the WooCommerce plugin, we set the email from address so we can make sure that our mails arrive. $ wp option set woocommerce_email_from_address 'firstname.lastname@example.org' $ wp plugin install redis-cache nginx-helper woocommerce wordfence --activate $ wp theme install storefront --activate $ wp redis enable
Now when you reload your site, you'll see that some things have changed and that there's a 'Shop' link in the menu. WooCommerce is now up and running! Below are some recommended settings you can do:
$ # Use SEO friendly URL rewrites $ wp rewrite structure '/%postname%/' $ # Run the WordPress cron from the system and not during web page requests (2 steps) $ wp config set DISABLE_WP_CRON true $ # Open your crontab editor with `crontab -e` and add the following line: $ */2 * * * * chronic php /data/web/wordpress/wp-cron.php
