To install Bagisto on DreamHost, you can follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your DreamHost account and navigate to the "MySQL Databases" section in the control panel.
  2. Create a new database for Bagisto by providing a name and clicking on the "Create Database" button.
  3. After creating the database, you need to create a new user with access to that database. Scroll down to the "MySQL Users" section and click on the "Add a MySQL User" button.
  4. Enter a username and password for the new user and click on the "Create this MySQL user" button.
  5. Associate the newly created user with the database by selecting the user and the database from the dropdown menus. Click on the "Add this user to database" button.
  6. Now, you need to download and install Bagisto on your DreamHost account. Connect to your DreamHost account using SSH or SFTP.
  7. Navigate to the directory where you want to install Bagisto. For example, if you want to install it in the "public" directory of your domain, navigate to "yourdomain.com/public/".
  8. Download the Bagisto source code from the official GitHub repository using the following command: git clone https://github.com/bagisto/bagisto
  9. Once the download is complete, navigate to the "bagisto" directory using the command: cd bagisto
  10. Install the required dependencies using Composer by running the following command: composer install
  11. After running Composer, create a .env file using the example file provided: cp .env.example .env
  12. Open the newly created .env file using a text editor and modify the database connection settings. Update the following lines with your database details: DB_CONNECTION=mysql DB_HOST=your_mysql_server DB_PORT=your_mysql_port DB_DATABASE=your_database_name DB_USERNAME=your_mysql_username DB_PASSWORD=your_mysql_password
  13. Generate a new application key using the following command: php artisan key:generate
  14. Run the database migration and seed the database by running the following command: php artisan migrate --seed
  15. After the migration is completed, configure your web server to point to the public directory of Bagisto. If you're using Apache, create a new virtual host or modify an existing one to point to the "public" directory of Bagisto.
  16. Set appropriate permissions for the storage directory by running the following command: chmod -R 755 storage
  17. Set appropriate permissions for the bootstrap/cache directory by running the following command: chmod -R 755 bootstrap/cache
  18. Finally, visit your Bagisto installation URL in a web browser, and you should see the installation wizard. Follow the on-screen instructions to complete the installation.


That's it! You have successfully installed Bagisto on your DreamHost account.
