HI All

I am at loggerheads with my developer about the time it takes to instal Magento.

I understand that it can take a few hours to upload the files, but I have been told by him it took hours to install using a VPN well he used lots of complex words!

I have been told the installation only takes a short time but I have been charged for a days work.

Please note the is not for any work in the back end just installation.

Thanks

J

Without knowing more details, it’s hard to be specific, but your developer could be on the mark.
He may have had to install a number of php modules and configure numerous other aspects of the VPS (assuming it was a ‘clean’ VPS). I would have spent at least a day just installing and setting up my VPS for Magento.

Installing Magento is not just a case of uploading a bunch of files and running install.php. It’s a complex application that requires the server running it to be set up and optimised.

Regards
