PrestaShop is a popular open source e-commerce solution. Professional tools are easily accessible to increase online sales including instant guest checkout, abandoned cart reminders and automated Email marketing.


$ helm install stable/prestashop


This chart bootstraps a PrestaShop deployment on a Kubernetes cluster using the Helm package manager.

It also packages the Bitnami MariaDB chart which is required for bootstrapping a MariaDB deployment for the database requirements of the PrestaShop application.

Bitnami charts can be used with Kubeapps for deployment and management of Helm Charts in clusters. This chart has been tested to work with NGINX Ingress, cert-manager, fluentd and Prometheus on top of the BKPR.


  • Kubernetes 1.5+ with Beta APIs enabled
  • PV provisioner support in the underlying infrastructure

Installing the Chart

To install the chart with the release name my-release:

$ helm install --name my-release stable/prestashop

The command deploys PrestaShop on the Kubernetes cluster in the default configuration. The configuration section lists the parameters that can be configured during installation.

Tip: List all releases using helm list

Uninstalling the Chart

To uninstall/delete the my-release deployment:

$ helm delete my-release

The command removes all the Kubernetes components associated with the chart and deletes the release.


The following table lists the configurable parameters of the PrestaShop chart and their default values.

The above parameters map to the env variables defined in bitnami/prestashop. For more information please refer to the bitnami/prestashop image documentation.


For PrestaShop to function correctly, you should specify the prestashopHost parameter to specify the FQDN (recommended) or the public IP address of the PrestaShop service.

Optionally, you can specify the prestashopLoadBalancerIP parameter to assign a reserved IP address to the PrestaShop service of the chart. However please note that this feature is only available on a few cloud providers (f.e. GKE).

To reserve a public IP address on GKE:

$ gcloud compute addresses create prestashop-public-ip

The reserved IP address can be associated to the PrestaShop service by specifying it as the value of the prestashopLoadBalancerIP parameter while installing the chart.

Specify each parameter using the --set key=value[,key=value] argument to helm install. For example,

$ helm install --name my-release \
  --set prestashopUsername=admin,prestashopPassword=password,mariadb.mariadbRootPassword=secretpassword \

The above command sets the PrestaShop administrator account username and password to admin and password respectively. Additionally, it sets the MariaDB root user password to secretpassword.

Alternatively, a YAML file that specifies the values for the above parameters can be provided while installing the chart. For example,

$ helm install --name my-release -f values.yaml stable/prestashop

Tip: You can use the default values.yaml

Rolling VS Immutable tags

It is strongly recommended to use immutable tags in a production environment. This ensures your deployment does not change automatically if the same tag is updated with a different image.

Bitnami will release a new chart updating its containers if a new version of the main container, significant changes, or critical vulnerabilities exist.


The Bitnami PrestaShop image stores the PrestaShop data and configurations at the /bitnami/prestashop path of the container.

Persistent Volume Claims are used to keep the data across deployments. This is known to work in GCE, AWS, and minikube. See the Configuration section to configure the PVC or to disable persistence.


To 3.0.0

Backwards compatibility is not guaranteed unless you modify the labels used on the chart's deployments. Use the workaround below to upgrade from versions previous to 3.0.0. The following example assumes that the release name is prestashop:

$ kubectl patch deployment prestashop-prestashop --type=json -p='[{"op": "remove", "path": "/spec/selector/matchLabels/chart"}]'
$ kubectl delete statefulset prestashop-mariadb --cascade=false
You can’t perform that action at this time.
