Awin Magento Extension Installation - Secure Shell Protocol/Command Line

Magento have announced the deprecation of the "Web Setup Wizard". This section of the admin dashboard will be completely removed from Magento store versions 2.4.0 onwards. Due to the changes (suggested by Magento), you will need to use SSH/Command Line to install any extension onto your Magento store.

Please also see: Magento FAQs for any common issues you may encounter.

Here is a step-by-step guide on how you can install the Awin Tracking extension, using this method.


Step One: Downloading the Awin extension

1. Go to Magento Marketplace and search for 'Awin'. Select and 'purchase' the Awin Tracking extension version that corresponds to your Magento store version (the extension is free - no payment details required).

2. Once purchased, click on 'Install' and setup your Access Keys if you haven't done so already. The 'How to Install' section also guides you on how to install and activate the Awin extension.

Step Two: Connecting to your website and installing the extension

1. Using the Command Line, connect to your SSH server.

2. Once connected, use the following command: cd stack/magento

3. Turn on 'maintenance mode': sudo bin/magento-cli maintenance:enable

4. Download the extension into the relevant folder: sudo composer require awin/module-advertisertracking:1.2.0

5. Enable the Awin extension: sudo bin/magento-cli module:enable Awin_AdvertiserTracking

6. Register the extension and check for updates: sudo bin/magento-cli setup:upgrade - Please be patient, this step can take up to 2 minutes.

7. Compile and execute the extension: sudo bin/magento-cli setup:di:compile - Please be patient, this step can take up to 2 minutes.

8. Flush (clear) the store cache': sudo bin/magento-cli cache:flush

9. Turn off 'maintenance mode': sudo bin/magento-cli maintenance:disable

10. Now to finally configure the extension; go to your website's admin dashboard and select Marketing>Awin - Advertiser Tracking>General Settings. Type in your Advertiser ID and click 'Save Config'.

The Awin tracking extension should now be fully configured and you can move on to testing the tracking.
