Install the Excel Connector Bundle
The Excel Connector Bundle contains utility classes to create Excel connectors. It also provides a method to initiate the PIM with a single Excel file. Remember to do a full backup of your folders/files and database before proceeding.
Set the memory_limit variable in your installdir/php/etc/php.ini file to 1000M. To know the total memory available, execute the command free -h. Modify the memory_limit value using the terminal:
$ sudo nano installdir/php/etc/php.ini
Edit the memory_limit value. It’s recommended that you restore the default value after you install the Magento Connector Bundle.
memory_limit = 1000M
Go to the directory where Akeneo files are located and use Composer to install the Magento Connector Bundle.
$ cd installdir $ cd apps/akeneo/htdocs $ php composer.phar require --prefer-dist akeneo/excel-init-bundle:2.0.*
When the installation finishes, enable bundles in the app/AppKernel.php file, in the registerProjectBundles() method. Add this lines in the file just after your app bundles should be registered here:
Clear the cache to avoid problems by running these commands:
$ php bin/console cache:clear --no-warmup --env=prod $ php bin/console pim:installer:assets --env=prod
It is very important to apply read, write, and execute permissions (recursive) to the cache folder after clearing the cache if you are running it with root privileges.
$ sudo chmod -R 775 var/cache
Update the following permissions/ownership:
$ sudo chmod -R 775 var/cache var/logs $ sudo chown -R bitnami:daemon vendor var/cache var/logs
Continue the installation according to the Akeneo official documentation.
