Today much of the trade remains traditional, but every time the trend is turned to the Internet. In this sense, companies large and small, need applications and tools to help promote their products. In addition, create all the infrastructure to conduct E-commerce. So, Linux is outlined as the ideal system to be the system behind the entire infrastructure. Today, I will show you how to install Cezerin on Ubuntu 18.04. With Cezerin you can deploy an e-commerce platform quickly and easily.
What is Cezerin?
Cezerin is React and Node.js based eCommerce platform. Allows creating Progressive Web Apps.
In other words, you can make a commercial site in a few minutes with this application.
Of course, Cezerin is open source and has the basic operations to make your online store. Although it is simple, it has many features:
- Products (options, variants, attributes).
- Product categories.
- Inventory and stock management.
- Customer groups.
- Order custom statuses.
So, let us get to work.
Install Cezerin on Ubuntu 18.04
To install Cezerin it is necessary to have an Ubuntu 18.04 server that has the sudo command available.
On the other hand, since the application is built with NodeJS, it needs to be installed correctly. In addition, to manage the application data use the database manager NoSQL MongoDB. In other words, you have to install them both.
1) Install NodeJS on Ubuntu 18.04
The first step is to install NodeJS on Ubuntu 18.04. For that, we have a detailed tutorial that will make you achieve this goal.
Once you have finished, you will be able to continue with the guide.
2) Install MongoDB on Ubuntu 18.04
Now it is MongoDB’s turn. For this, we will use the version available in the official repository of the project. So add it and then install MongoDB.
First, open a terminal and run the following command to add the GPG key of the repository.
:~$ wget -qO - https://www.mongodb.org/static/pgp/server-4.2.asc | sudo apt-key add -
It then adds the repository as such to the list of software origins.
:~$ echo "deb http://repo.mongodb.org/apt/debian stretch/mongodb-org/4.2 main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mongodb-org-4.2.list
After this, refresh the APT cache.
:~$ sudo apt update
Install MongoDB on Ubuntu with the following command:
:~$ sudo apt install mongodb-org mongodb-org-shell mongodb-org-server mongodb-org-mongos libcurl3
Check the installed version:
:~$ mongod -version db version v4.2.0 git version: a4b751dcf51dd249c5865812b390cfd1c0129c30 OpenSSL version: OpenSSL 1.1.1 11 Sep 2018 allocator: tcmalloc modules: none build environment: distmod: debian92 distarch: x86_64 target_arch: x86_64
3) Install Cezerin on Ubuntu 18.04
After installing the pre-requirements, we will be able to install Cezerin. To do this, navigate to your personal folder and download the source code using git.
:~$ cd ~ :~$ git clone https://github.com/cezerin/cezerin.git cezerin
Then, navigate into the folder and run:
:~$ cd cezerin :~$ sudo npm install :~$ sudo npm run build
Once the “compilation” has been completed, the application must be installed as such. To do this, simply use the following:
:~$ sudo npm run setup
Now you can start the program by using the following command:
:~$ sudo npm start
Now, open your web browser and go to
http://Server-ip:3000. Remember to open the port on the firewall.
If you want to manage Cezerin as a systemd service, run the following commands:
:~$ sudo nano /etc/systemd/system/cezerin.service
And add the following:
[Unit] Description=Cezerin [Service] ExecStart=/usr/bin/npm start WorkingDirectory=/opt/cezerin Restart=always RestartSec=10 StandardOutput=syslog StandardError=syslog SyslogIdentifier=nodejs-example [Install] WantedBy=multi-user.target
To apply the changes, reload systemd.
:~$ sudo systemctl daemon-reload
Now, you can start it, enable it or stop it easily.
And that is it.
As you can see, it is quite simple to deploy an E-Commerce platform with Cezerin. Of course, the potential of the application makes the possibilities unimaginable.
