Installing the Trustpilot plugin in your Magento 2.x platform requires technical knowledge and access to the command line interface (terminal) of your webshop server. The plugin can be installed using Composer.
Important: Your webshop will be inaccessible during the 5-15 minute installation process. We strongly recommend installing the plugin when your webshop is least busy and make sure to make a backup beforehand.
Log in to your Magento server using SSH (Secure Shell) and run the following commands:
- Create a backup by navigating to the root directory of your Magento installation and executing the command below. Please note that your website will be inaccessible during the backup process.
php bin/magento setup:backup --code --db --media
- Next, enable maintenance mode:
php bin/magento maintenance:enable
- Download and install the Trustpilot plugin using Composer
composer require “trustpilot/module-reviews”
- If this is the first time you install a plugin using Composer, Magento will ask you to provide your Magento Marketplace account credentials. To find your account information go to https://marketplace.magento.com > My profile > Access Keys > Create A New Access Key. Note: Your public key is your username, while your private key is your password.
- Enable the Trustpilot plugin
php bin/magento module:enable Trustpilot_Reviews --clear-static-content
- Update the database schema. Please note that this command is global and will enable all the Magento plugins that you have installed, so please proceed cautiously.
php bin/magento setup:upgrade
- Compile (Note: This command is only required in production mode)
php bin/magento setup:di:compile
- Deploy static content (Note: This command is only required in production mode)
