    How to Install Magento

    Installing Magento is not so hard but if you aren't familiar with Magento structure and Linux command, it can be confusing.

    You can simply follow the installation Magento steps, but if you get some errors it will be hard to solve them. Let me give you an example: what will you do if you get an error for permission? Simply you use the 'chmod -R 777' command to fix it, but it is a temporary solution (never do it, even temporarily).
