Installation

In this tutorial, I will show you how to install magento 2 social login extension with ease. Let’s follow our tutorials here

To install the magento 2 social logins, please follow the instructions bellow:

1. Back up your web directory and store database.

2. Download social login extension installation package.

3. Upload content of the social login extension installation package to your store root folder via FTP/SFTP:

4. Connect to your store root directory with SSH

cd path_to_the_store_root_folder

Run 3 commands bellow:

php -f bin/magento setup:upgrade
php -f bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy
php -f bin/magento setup:di:compile

5. Flush store cache, log out from the backend and log in again

Import Sample Data

1. Go to admin > Venustheme > Setup > Import

2. Select the sample data file

3 Refresh the cache under System->Cache Management

Set up cron

If you have already configured cron jobs for your Magento installation then you can skip this step. Read the following instructions on setting cron job for your Magento store: Magento user guide.

Before, we have to find the path of 2 files :
– php.ini
– php binary file

For the first, create a phpinfo.php file on your Magento root folder, and put :

php_ini

For me it’s :
etc/php5/apache2/php.ini

Delete file phpinfo.php

To find the PHP binary:
which PHP

For me it’s :
/usr/bin/php

Now we can create the crontab !
Launch the command :
sudo crontab -u -e

The crontab content is (put the right php binary, and php.ini pathes) :

*/1 * * * * /usr/bin/php -c etc/php5/apache2/php.ini /var/www/magento2/bin/magento cron:run >> /var/www/magento2/var/log/magento.cron.log&
*/1 * * * * /usr/bin/php -c etc/php5/apache2/php.ini /var/www/magento2/update/cron.php >> /var/www/magento2/var/log/update.cron.log&
*/1 * * * * /usr/bin/php -c etc/php5/apache2/php.ini /var/www/magento2/bin/magento setup:cron:run >> /var/www/magento2/var/log/setup.cron.log&

 

– */1 * * * * : Cron launched every minutes
– /usr/bin/php : php binary path
– etc/php5/apache2/php.ini : php.ini path
– /var/www/magento2/ : Magento 2 root folder
– >> redirect the output to a logfile for debug

After done with the schedule store administrator is suggested to specify the conditions on what the follow-up is sent.

Conditions include:

  • Product attributes;
  • Store views;
  • Product types;
  • Customer groups.

How do conditions work?

For example store administrator has set up the following conditions for Abandoned Checkout event:

  • Store view = Store #1;
  • Customer groups = General;
  • Subtotal equals or greater than $100;
  • The color of the item in the cart = red.

On such conditions Abandoned Checkout follows up will only be sent to the customer from General group, who placed a red item with the price of at least $100 in the cart at the Store #1.

These are all the settings and options store administrator has to specify before saving a new email event.
