Top 7 Problems Magento Store Owners Face 2018

Magento has been the de facto standard for people looking to create an e-commerce site. Setting up a site with Magento is not difficult due to its easy installation and similar global configuration. All goes well until you enter the advanced phase. With more than 225,000 e-commerce sites running on Magento globally and with their impressive site, it may seem like the best option. However, there all several things that you should be aware of before you deploy it.

Magento is available in two editions:

  • Community Edition which is free to use
  • Enterprise Edition comes with a heavy fees

The community edition is meant for small businesses while the enterprise edition is meant for large size business who make the most of their business through e-commerce. There is a significant difference between the two platforms, and it has enough issues to make you think thrice before you move ahead.

To help you make your decision here are the top 7 problems. Let’s have a look at them:

  • Admin Panel Login issues

After the installation of Magento completes, the most common error arises in the form of login issues. At the time of installation the Magento with the correct username and password, it sends you the message about the completion of the installation process. But when you use the wrong credentials, Magento displays the message “Invalid username or password”

This error arises because the site that you have just created does not store cookies. This happens due to the fact that localhost or “” is not a real domain. Most browsers only allow real domains to collect cookies. This is the reason why your logins attempts fail consistently.

  • 503 service temporarily unavailable error

This error arises when you multiple install Magento extensions. There might be two reasons for this:

Reason A: Problem with the hosting server

Call your hosting company to fix the issue.

Reason B: Your e-commerce store is in the maintenance mode.

We suggest you go to the Magento root installation, find a maintenance flag document and delete it. After this, Magento will not display maintenance mode message. Even if you still get the same problem, clear the cache and the sessions to resolve this.

  • Products not displayed

This happens when you several products in your store and Magento is not displaying products in a particular category but these products are visible when you visit the exact URL. It is a common error and happens frequently with E-Commerce website that has multiple products listed online.

  • Weird code behavior even when not using third-party plugins and extensions.

Code behaves strangely when the core file is modified. Have a look at the Magento system modifications and check out whether the core file has been modified. Use the standard Unix diff command and compare all Magento files with similar files of the default Magento. If you discover a difference between them, you can easily resolve the problem.

  • Installed extensions not working

When you use a custom Magento theme there are high chances that you may face incompatibility issues with your already installed plugins and extensions are not working on the front end. To resolve this issue, find a compatible theme.

  • Untimely log out from admin panel

This happens when your Magento installation has a limited lifetime of cookies. To resolve this go to the back and change the cookie lifetime.

  • Endless admin notifications

As your E-Commerce the store grows, Magento comes up with multiple notifications that might disturb your usual activities. To resolve this disable notification by going to the back end.

While there are many challenges while you use Magento website development services, the platform is still one of the most used and popular ones.
