System requirement

To install JM TravelGear, you have to install the Magento base in advance. You can get it done quickly by following the Magento Installation Guide.

Download packages

JM TravelGear Download packageDownload Packages

Once downloaded, extract JM TravelGear download package to get these folders:

  • mage_ext: contains all built-in extensions of the theme.
  • mage_tpl: contains the theme files only.
  • quickstart: a full Magento version with JM TravelGear already integrated to match the demo.
  • source: contains all source files of the theme.

There are two ways to install a Ubertheme Magento theme:

  • Manual Installation: Applicable if your store is full with content that you don’t want to overwrite.
  • QuickStart Installation: Applicable if you want to get a whole new fresh site as per Demo.

Provided that you have installed the Magento base already, decide which way to install and follow steps as below.

1. Manual Installation

Step 1: BaseTheme Installation


Extension basetheme is required to be installed before installing the other extensions and theme.

To install, copy the BaseTheme folder in the extracted folder mage_ext to your site root folder.

For more about BaseTheme, visit its detailed documentation.

Step 2: Theme Installation

1. Copy the folders skin and app to your site root folder. The overwritten folders should have a directory layout like this:

        {docroot} /magento/app/
        index.php
        js/
        lib/
        LICENSE.txt
        media/
        pear/
        skin/
        var/

2. Log in to your Admin Panel e.g. //localhost/magento/index.php/admin/. Log out and log in back.

3. Navigate to System >> Cache Management, Sellect All the cache types, take Action as Refresh and Submit.

7. Click Save Config button to finish.

Step 3: Extension Installation

2. In your Admin Panel, navigate to System >> Configuration.

3. To enable any extension, enter this one’s tab and set Enable to “Yes”.

Magento Guide: Extension Enable Settings

4. Click Save Config button to finish.

2. QuickStart Installation

Quickstart package is to minimize time and effort in installing the theme as per Demo site. Kindly note that, with Quickstart, all your existing data will be overwritten. Thus, we recommend using Quickstart for your first installation or just in case you want to refresh your site to the very beginning.

1. Upload the folder quickstart to your server. In Quickstart folder you will see the extracted folder that includes all sample data.

2. Create a database for your Magento store using phpMyAdmin.

Magento Guide: phpMyAdmin

3. To install, open a browser and navigate to your URL (where the Quickstart package uploaded) to load the default Magento installer. Kindly follow each step of the Installer so that the installation process can be set.

Magento Guide: lisence

4. In the Configuration step, input the required fields as below.

  • Do not use “localhost” in URL, otherwise you could not log in to your Admin area (you should use your local IP in case of installing on your computer).
  • Leave Tables prefix field blank.
