See one of the following sections:

Get the Magento CE software using Composer

This software is available from repo.magento.com. Before installing the CE software using Composer, familiarize yourself with the Composer metapackage prerequisites, then run

composer create-project --repository-url=https://repo.magento.com/ magento/project-community-edition=<version> <installation directory name>

where <version> matches the version you want (for example, 2.0.10)

For example, to install Magento CE 2.0.10 in the magento2 directory:

composer create-project --repository-url=https://repo.magento.com/ magento/project-community-edition=2.0.10 magento2

Get Magento CE using a compressed archive

The following table discusses where to get the Magento software. We provide the following downloads:

  • Magento CE software only
  • Magento CE software with sample data (designed to help you learn Magento faster)

These packages are easy to get and install. You don’t need to use Composer, all you need to do is to upload a package to your Magento server or hosted platform, unpack it, and run the web-based Setup Wizard.

Archives are available in the following formats: .zip, .tar.bz2, .tar.gz

To get the Magento CE software archive:

  1. Go to http://magento.com/download.
  2. Choose either the software or the software and sample data:

    • Magento-CE-<version>.* (without sample data)
    • Magento-CE-<version>+Samples.* (with sample data)

    <version> is the three-digit release number (for example, 2.0.7, 2.1.0, and so on).

Get the Magento CE software from GitHub

If you clone the Magento 2 GitHub repository, you cannot use the Magento software in a production environment. You cannot have a live store that accepts orders and so on.

Before proceeding, please familiarize yourself with these prerequisites, then run

git clone git@github.com:magento/magento2.git
cd magento2
git checkout tags/<version> [-b <version>]

where

<version> matches the version you want (for example, 2.0.10)

[-b <version>] optionally checks out a new branch.

After you get the CE software:

  1. Set file system ownership and permissions.
