Thanks for this tutorial, I am not a technical person and using Cludways for installing all the apps including PrestaShop, it’s quite easy with their managed platform, , Nothing to do technically, just manage on clicks and install PrestaShop in minutes.

well , that was meant to fix prestashop issues with php 7.2.4 in first place , as php 1.7 is not supporting it

@moataz as I install as the instruction. I try to install prestashop with PHP 5.6. the installing progress stop at 12% ps_** already exiting in database. then deleted the database and created new one for it. it stuck at the 12% also. I changed the persmissions to 777 all the folders and sub-folders it would be install successfully. but when I goto return 500 error, server temperatly not working. is this the .htass not working or the rewrite engine to to configure?

You can try PrestaShop auto installer. Use PHP 7.x and above.

I can’t install prestashop on php 7.2.
An error appears:
We can’t start installation :frowning:

PrestaShop installation requires the SimpleXML extension to be enabled.

You can contact your web host provider to fix theses requirements.
to przy php 7.2

How to fix it?

Install process for this extension should be similar to Install ImageMagick/imagick PHP extension on CyberPanel/OpenLiteSpeed! — CyberPanel - WebHosting Control Panel for OpenLiteSpeed

I need SimpleXML extension to install prestashop on php 7.2.

I’ve just installed PrestaShop latest version from their site on CyberPanel Ent, and it worked without any problem. phpinfo page also list this extension.

Can You show phpinfo page?
