This HowTo is about how to easily connect Magento E-commerce to openQRM-Cloud.

Install Magento on the openQRM Server

Login to a root console on to the openQRM server.

Change to the Apache Webserver document-root directory (on Debian/Ubuntu /var/www/, on RedHat/CentOS /var/http/html)

Download Magento (latest stable 1.9 branch) from

Unpack the downloaded Magento zip-file.

Login to the MySQL Database used by openQRM (and later Magento) and create a "magento" database.

Please see the commands below:

cd /var/www/
cd magento
chmod 777 app/etc
chmod -R 777 media
mysql -popenqrm
mysql> create database magento;
mysql> exit

Open a web browser and start the Magento configuration at "http://your-openQRM-server-ip-address/magento/"

Configure Magento Localization

Configure the Magento database

Setup the Magento Admin account

Finalized Magento installation and setup

Login to the Magento Backend as "admin"

Click on "Manage Products" in the "Catalog" menu

Add a new product

Choose "Simple Product"

Name the product "1 Cloud Computing Unit"

Further down add additional parameters for the product and make use its status is set to "enabled"

In the "Inventory" menu make sure to set a "Qty" (Quantity)

Further down in the "Inventory" section please make sure to set the "Stock availability" to "In Stock"

In the "Categories" section please enable the product for the "Default Category". Further configure the product to your needs and save.

Go to the openQRM Servers Plugin Manager and install the "magento" plugin

Start the "magento" plugin

Go to "Plugins -> Cloud -> Magento -> Connect". This starts the auto-configuration for the connection.

Now click on "Connect". That's it! The Magento E-commerce is not connected to the openQRM Cloud. User and Orders from Magento will be automatically synced now into the openQRM Cloud.

Go to the Magento Shop front-end and register as new user. Then add the previously created Cloud Computing Unit to the cart.

... and proceed to checkout.

... and place the order.

In the openQRM Cloud User Management the order is now synced and Cloud User is created/updated with Cloud Computing Units.

Also a mail has been sent to the new User with the openQRM Cloud portal credentials.
