Problem setting up local environment for development


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,
I'm experiencing some problems with the Prestashop development environment setting.
Basically, following the instructions in the manual, it seems that I can't correctly download the assets to use PS.
This is the procedure I followed:

  1. Look for new folder on VS Code and open terminal
  2. Run git clone https://github.com/PrestaShop/PrestaShop.git (version is downloaded)
  3. Run composer install
  4. Run the PS installation (example: http://localhost/PrestaShop )

After doing some research I was instructed to run the make install command immediately after using composer install. The problem is that the make command doesn't seem to be recognized.

Can you tell me what I'm doing wrong?

Please install the PrestaShop stable file from PrestaShop.com if you download from git you will got unstable version which are development mode. 


Download the file and then follow Zohaib-fk tutorial to install that in localhost.

Make sure your execution time is 300s min and memory limit 256MB or 512M.

Then you are able to install PrestaShop smooth


Thank you

Thank you for your responses, but you most likely did not read my post carefully.
I need to download and use the development version of PS, so I would like to use on my ide the official development repository of Prestashop git page.

I don't need to install the standard version of PS locally.
