Ok , I realise there is an opinionated side of this question , but I don't want to do this wrong and break an install.
I am relatively new to Magento , and when I install an extension there is a process : usually something like:
- Copy the first directory to your magento root folder , then
- Copy the second folder to the same place. I assume that this is so that magento doesn't try to install the extension while the files are still being copied.
I want to roll out a new site , and I want to do the whole thing with a script preferably rather than sitting there for ages installing extensions one by one.
Is it safe to copy ALL the extension files ( maybe 10 different extensions ) excluding their .xml files that go in /etc/modules - then copy the .xml files and run the whole lot by going to the site ( clearing cache , logging out etc ).
Should I use a command line to install some other way? ( they are files so I won't get from the magento marketplace directly ) .
Thanks for your time.
