Online service – Predict future sales using machine learning

Hi all,

We are running an online service company – predict future sales based on past sales using machine learning and AI. This helped some of our clients reduce inventory and redundant shipment costs by as much as 15%, while for others it helped to better prepare for business growth and finding the right marketing segments.

Creating online shop

Disclaimer: question can be stupid

So basically I am competitive programmer but complete unaware of how things works on production. I need to create online store; did a little research and decided that Magento platform is good to go. I installed it, but I cannot understand, how is full-stack web development is related to this platform, I mean, I cannot find the connection between Magento and web development. There are lots of frameworks like Angular (front), etc., do developers use them while developing store on Magento? Or is it that simple and everything is ready in Magento. Thanks in advance for understanding.

Magento 2 Progress (Is it worth it?)

Running 4 x Magento 1 stores. It does absolutely everything we want it to and is easy to develop on. We priced out Mageone and are looking at around $20k / year just to get access to patches. Not sure how long that will last either.

We tried putting up a Magento 2 instance early last year and it was a disaster working in the admin with cache turned off. Generally when we’re on a development server we keep cache off until we’re ready to test (or depending on what we’re building). It would take 10-20 seconds just to load one view in the admin area. It seems odd that they would cache the admin side. Maybe someone created a fix for this?

The other thing I’ve heard is that M2 forces you to use their multi stock inventory. We use multiple warehouses but have shipperhq solving all of those headaches, and haven’t had a problem for years. Obviously Magento 2 has some extensions that I’m interested in, but even the front end seems slower.

What to do?

Multiple problems after installing Magento

I’m new to Magento and having some trouble installing components, extensions, upgrading etc etc.

THe following setup:

  • Ubuntu 18.04
  • 4 gb ram
  • 2 cpu’s
  • Magento 2.3.4
  • Fresh install

The following problems occur:

– out of RAM (.htaccess 3gb, php.ini 3gb, swap file 265mb)

– Permissions issues

– HTTP 500

So for example when i try to upgrade with composer:

I did the following:

sudo bin/magento deploy:mode:set developer sudo bin/magento setup:upgrade 

After this i got the error below.

Error:

[Sat Apr 04 10:12:27.384477 2020] [php7:error] [pid 27863] [client 83.163.21.44:52297] PHP Fatal error: Uncaught Zend_Cache_Exception: cache_dir "/var/www/html/var/cache/" is not writable in /var/www/html/vendor/magento/zendframework1/library/Zend/Cache.php:209nStack trace:n#0 /var/www/html/vendor/magento/zendframework1/library/Zend/Cache/Backend/File.php(180): Zend_Cache::throwException('cache_dir "/var...')n#1 /var/www/html/vendor/colinmollenhour/cache-backend-file/File.php(87): Zend_Cache_Backend_File->setCacheDir('/var/www/html/v...')n#2 /var/www/html/vendor/magento/zendframework1/library/Zend/Cache.php(153): Cm_Cache_Backend_File->__construct(Array)n#3 /var/www/html/vendor/magento/zendframework1/library/Zend/Cache.php(94): Zend_Cache::_makeBackend('Cm_Cache_Backen...', Array, true, true)n#4 /var/www/html/vendor/magento/framework/App/Cache/Frontend/Factory.php(156): Zend_Cache::factory('Magento\\Framewo...', 'Cm_Cache_Backen...', Array, Array, true, true, true)n#5 /var/www/html/vendor/magento/framework/Cache/Frontend/Adapter/Zend.php(38): Magento\Framework\App\Cache\Frontend\Factory->Magento\Framework\App\C in /var/www/html/vendor/magento/zendframework1/library/Zend/Cache.php on line 209 

I don’t understand why its talking about permissions at the website they advice to configure the permissions as follow.

find var generated vendor pub/static pub/media app/etc -type f -exec chmod 664 {} ; find var generated vendor pub/static pub/media app/etc -type d -exec chmod 775 {} ; chmod u+x bin/magento 

Also it would be nice to know how other people configured there RAM. Are there any other configuration i need to set?

Is it normal to have store_id 0 for all my categories? (Magento 2)

Hello everyone, I’m fairly new to Magento. I’m bulk importing items using https://github.com/bigbridge-nl/product-import and I currently only have one store. I am running a fresh install and my url rewrites work fine for products but the categories don’t work. The category rewrites will work if I go into the database table and change the category rewrites store_id to 1.

In the source code the developer is forcing category to have store_id of 0. I’m not sure the reasoning behind this, but I am wondering if I should just modify the store_id to be 1.

Is there any significance to having categories store_id = 0?

Anyone know of a good Admin theme?

I was really impressed by the PowerdashM2, but didn’t buy it last fall while I was looking. It now appears to be offline, or no longer for sale. There are a couple of other dashboards out there I’ve found, one from CMSMart which doesn’t work above 2.3.0 and they won’t upgrade, something similar from LandofCoders.

I can easily change the colors, icons, etc. but I am looking for something more customizable than that.

Please help a newbies with questions about choosing Magento as a career path.

Hello guys and girls.

My path has led me to this forum after searching for information about Magento. As a beginner in PHP and getting to grips with Magento, i’d really appreciate some help answering a few questions I have about the software. I’m looking at training and books, so I my need to follow up on those things later.

Opinion based, but also can be useful from multiple viewpoints : Is Magento a growing, in demand area of specialization around the world? I’m from France if that makes any difference.

Are salaries generally good for the work compared to other frameworks, both within PHP and other languages?

Are there any makor roadblocks that cause you to dissuade a newbie starting down the Magento path with the hopes of a fulfilling, challenging career?

Excited to hear from te community. Stay safe.

Magento Announces Offerings to Help Small & Mid-Sized Companies!!!

https://magento.com/blog/magento-news/adobe-announces-offerings-help-small-mid-sized-companies

I was really excited to see this. Then, I read this Magento offering for “Small” businesses is offering 3 months of Magento Commerce for free. So you sign on for a product that you’ll typically stick with for what, at least 36 months? Then, you get 3 months off to help seal the deal since your cash flow may be hurting right now? Isn’t that something that the sales team could have already pulled off in terms of discounts? That’s less than a 10% discount if you think of a website lasting at least 3 years.

A Magento Commerce license starts at what, $20k to $50k per year? I don’t see how this is an offering to help Small businesses. If all that Magento can offer is an ~8% discount on its enterprise product, is this really something that needs to be publicized as support for businesses impacted by the Coronavirus crisis? It’s not like after the 3 months you can switch to something else without losing your shirt on your development investment, and that’s assuming a long-term contract isn’t required, which I’d doubt would be the case.

I’m hoping that I’m just reading this wrong, but the other terms don’t seem like anything special. They’re offering to spin up the account within 2-weeks, which doesn’t seem like a major feat… Someone help me out here. I must be missing something.
