Enter Server Name of Document Root (default: http://mage2.dev/): 
Enter Base Path (default: ee202):

How to use configuration files

The config file allows you to store params for DB and URL. Example of config file


When you first run m2install script, it shows wizard which prompts to save the config file to your home directory.

m2install uses fallback mechanism to find config files recursively from home directory to current directory. For example if you want to install magento to directory ~/www/m2/ga/magento2ee

you can override config file which is placed in your home directory.


How to use ssh tunnels for remote DB connection

Make sure that you have correct parameters in .m2install.conf file Parameters example:

[email protected]

As a result you will get:

ssh -i /Users/path/to/ssh_key -o StrictHostKeyChecking=no -4fN -L 33060:mysql-host:3306 [email protected] >> /dev/null

All created ssh tunnels pids located in file kill_tunnel.sh in Magento root folder (or pub)

To run you will need only code dump file (Example code.tar.gz).

m2install.sh --remote-db database_name

Make attention that in --remote-db database_name first part before "_" is database user name

Make attention that in bootstrap added SECURE and UNSECURE BASE_URL to prevent DB modification

$_ENV['CONFIG__DEFAULT__WEB__UNSECURE__BASE_URL'] = 'http://magento.local/';
