Quick Start Reference Deployment Guide

Step 2. Download the Magento Software

Before you launch the Quick Start, you must download the Magento Community Edition software with or without sample data into an S3 bucket. When you launch the Quick Start, you specify the full path to the downloaded files as input to the main AWS CloudFormation template, and the Quick Start automatically installs Magento for you.

  1. If you don't already have a Magento account (which is free), create an account.

  2. Download the Magento Community Edition version 2.1.5 full release from the Magento Community Edition download page. Choose the .tar.gz format for the download. At the time of publication, the latest full release was Magento-CE-2.1.5-2017-02-20-05-36-16.tar.gz.

    –or–

    If you want to set up the sample store, download the Magento Community Edition version 2.1.5 full release with sample data from the Magento Community Edition download page. Choose the .tar.gz format for the download (for example, Magento-CE-2.1.5_sample_data-2017-02-20-05-42-11.tar.gz).

  3. Create an S3 bucket by following the instructions in the Amazon S3 Getting Started Guide.

  4. Add the downloaded files to the S3 bucket by following the instructions in the Amazon S3 Getting Started Guide.

  5. Note the full paths to the downloaded files. After you launch the Quick Start, when you set parameters for the AWS CloudFormation template, you'll specify these paths.

    For example, if your Amazon S3 bucket is named mymagentobucket, you'll set the MagentoReleaseMedia parameter to:

    Copy
    https://s3.amazonaws.com/mymagentobucket/Magento-CE-2.1.5-2017-02-20-05-36-16.tar.gz

    If you've downloaded Magento Community Edition with sample data to mymagentobucket, you'll set the MagentoReleaseMedia parameter to:

    Copy
    https://s3.amazonaws.com/mymagentobucket/Magento-CE-2.1.5_sample_data-2017-02-20-05-42-11.tar.gz
