Project 2

Today I have done the currency setup and other settings. Now I will show how I changed the currency setup and other settings in the Magento 2 CMS.

First Go to the settings then open the configuration page and then go to  the general settings and currency setup and change the currency to whatever currency you like and there you can allow the currencies you like.2

Then I have tried to add the categories that I need that is Mens and Electronics categories and put them as the pages in the website.


First go to the dashboard and then go to the products.


This is the category page where you can add all the category and the subcategory.

Next I will add all the subcategories what I need to in the categories page.

Note: The Magento software is very slow and it takes around 5 min to add one image to the products.

First I will discuss on how to install Magento Software. First of all installing Xampp server and then installing the Magento software.Here are some screenshots on how to  install  Magento in my system.




This is the installing of Magento Software. I had some issues in installing Magento Software. Finally I installed Magento in my System.


Installing WordPress

Now I will be looking on how to install wordpress in the xampp server for the purpose of the project Wool New Zealand which I had discussed in the previous blogs on installing joomla.

Now I am trying to install wordpress on the xampp.

First step is to download the zip file.

Extract the file and copy the content of the file and paste it in xampp – htdocs.

now open localhost/phpmyadmin and create a data base called wordpresss.


Then open localhost/wordpress and follow the steps.


Here in the database I have written the same as I have written in the localhost/phpmyadmin database name.


This the wordpress dashboard after installing the wordpress.


Installing Drupal

This week I have installed drupal in my computer for the project whicch I have expalined in the previous blog on Installation of Joomla.

First step is to go to the website bitnami drupal  where I will get the drupal software to download.


Then launch the application3

The screen will come like this.


Installing Joomla

This week I have installed Joomla for the project of wool New Zealand. Now I will give a brief summary of the project, what is the project is for and what I am going to do in my project.

The members of the Auckland branch of Wool New Zealand are all wool growers in the Auckland region who market their wool separately to domestic and global customers. They want a website of their own so that they can increase the exposure of all the local growers for the collective benefit of all growers. By building the website they want to increase the members in Wool New Zealand those who have not been registered in Auckland region Wool New Zealand. The members liked the website of wine Nelson( They want to mention all the grower’s details in the website and what they produce and they will sell with a link to their websites, if required they want to add the contact information for each grower.

The main purpose of the website is to increase the market share of all growers in the Auckland region and increase the profit through reducing the supply chain and securing direct fibre supply contract with the domestic and global customers. They would like to have an online auction link in the website. The homepage of the website should contain all the general information about the wool based upon the types, characteristics, processing information, quality factor, usage and benefit. They would like the following features for the wool grower to provide the types, attributes and grade of the wool.

The following features that they would like on the website are:

  • Growers and customers can login and administer their account.
  • Growers will use the auction system to register the wool and the customer can bid.
  • They need a wool quality calculator that prices the wool clip based on its characteristics such as dimensions, crimp, yield, colour, staple strength etc.
  • Interactive element that engages the website user.

This is the executive summary of the project.

Now I followed the steps of installing Joomla.

  1. I installed Xampp server in my computer. Xampp is a free and open source cross-platform web server  solution stack package developed by Apache Friends, consisting mainly of the Apache HTTP Server, Maria DB database, and interpreters for scripts written in the PHP and Perl programming languages.
  2. Next step is to install Joomla. By going to the website             Capture
  3. Next Click on download Joomla which is the first option. then save the zip folder.
  4. Then extract the zip folder in the xampp folder and copy the files in the htdocs.2
  5. Create a data base in the myphplogin named as Joomla.
  6. follow these stepsj1j2j3j4
  7. Then open it in localhost/joomla.adminstrator.
  8. It will open this page.3

This is installation process for joomla in the system


Week 3


This week after submitting the project proposal and getting the feedback from the project committee I planned what to do and how to do the e commerce website. I planned what to include in the website and what colors I need to use to make the website look beautiful.

I also planned where to study the online tutorials on how to build up a website and what software I need to use to build up the website.

The online tutorials I found was:

This video is very good as I can create my website by keeping in mind the things told in this website.

Week 2

This week we need to submit the proposal and I choose E commerce website design project as my major. I submitted the project proposal to the committee. I choose Claire Atkins and Craig Nicol as my project coordinator because Craig is good at web site designing and Claire might help in research work.

Now comes whats my project is about:

Project Title – Saljan- E commerce website for buying and selling necessary goods.

The goal of the project is to build a e commerce website where the customers can buy and sell necessary goods.Through the website they can track the items and also they can do the online transaction.

I choose this project because by doing this project I will gain more knowledge in website designing and if I get the same scenario in future I can cop up with that. The main thing why I choose this project is because i want to extend my family business as my family got clothing business and I want to extend it to next level like furniture, electronics and other necessary goods.In my website the customers can also sell their goods through online.

By doing this project I can also extend my knowledge in HTML, CSS and java Script. I love writing code language. These are the main purpose for building a website.

Feedback from the project committee:

The feedback that I got from the project committee and my project supervisors is that I need to strengthen my project proposal and it should be more deep what I am studying in WEB 701.

This is all about my project and the feedback from the project committee.
