SM Market Theme: Installation Tips

For the SM Market theme installation, I’ve launched a new Magento server on the Cloudways Platform.

If you are new to Cloudways, don’t worry because I’m going to explain each step in detail from launching the server to finalizing the SM Market theme installation.

First, you have to create an account with Cloudways. Once done, follow this GIF to launch your first Magento server:

1

Once you have created an account and launched the Magento server, it’s time to upload the SM Market theme to the server. For this, I will use FileZilla.

You will need server credentials (from the Master Credentials tab).

2

Setup your connection with FileZilla, and drag & drop two main theme files, app and pub to the public_html directory of the Magento application.

3

The transfer can take some time because there are a lot of files including XML, CSS, UI library, jQuery UI styles, and images. Once the theme has been uploaded, you need to run some commands on Composer.

Launch the SSH terminal, and access the root directory to execute the following commands.

4

Run the following command to upgrade your store while installing or upgrading any theme and extensions.

php bin/magento setup:upgrade

5

The command for deploy static content allows Magento 2 to perform the following actions:

  • Analyze all static resources
  • Perform merge, minimization, and bundling of content
  • Read and process theme data
  • Analyze theme fallback
  • Store all processed and materialized content to a specific folder for further usage

php bin/magento setup:static-content:deploy -f

6

Next, access the Magento Admin Panel and set SM Market theme as a default theme. Navigate to Content > Configuration, and click the Edit option of the Main Website Store.

7

From the dropdown menu, select the SM Market theme and hit Save Configuration.

8

Now, it’s time to configure the theme as per your own business requirement. For that, navigate to Store > Configuration > Import Static Blocks, Import Page, and choose from the 20+ Demo(s). Finally, save the configuration.

9

Don’t forget to clear the cache from the Admin Area or run the command: php bin/magento cache:flush

10

That’s it! Now it’s time to add images, set catalogs, and customize the theme.

SM Market Theme Performance with Cloudways

As mentioned that it is a lightweight with better page load performance, I’m attaching the page load speed of the theme as Cloudways also provides an unbeatable Magento hosting stack including Varnish, Redis, OPcache and much more.

Besides, this theme isn’t completely optimized and the result is quite satisfactory via Pingdom server location Tokyo, Japan.

11

Please Note:

  • SM Market theme recommends PHP version 7.1 for the Magento 2.2.4+ versions.
  • SM Market theme recommends PHP version 7.1.3+ for the Magento 2.3.x versions.
