Set up Installation\Upgrade Module

M2E Pro Updater automates the process of installing and updating your M2E Pro. To start using the Updater, you should install it on your Magento first. Some technical skills are required to perform the procedure manually.

Please ensure that all the preliminary requirements are met before you install/upgrade the Module.


Use the following
instructions to install or upgrade the Updater:

Step 1. Download the latest version of the M2E Pro Updater.

Step 2. Unpack the downloaded file into the Magento Core directory.

Step 3. Run the command following the pattern: php %magento2_installation_dir%/bin/magento setup:upgrade .

Step 4. For the Production Mode of Magento, run the command following the pattern: php %path_to_your_magento%/bin/magento setup:di:compile to increase its working speed after the installation.

Step 5. Deploy static content data. Check this article for the details.

Step 6. After the Updater installed, add a new Cron job to run this file app/code/Ess/M2eProUpdater/m2epro_updater_cron.php. You can use this Crontab Command: php [your-magento-shop-path]/app/code/Ess/M2eProUpdater/m2epro_updater_cron.php .
