magmi-git 0.7.23

This is the official GitHub home for the Magmi project: the original "Magento Mass Importer".

The primary source repository is now here ,the SourceForge repo is now secondary and will be kept in sync.

The official Magmi Wiki is still hosted at SourceForge.

Magento CE 1.8 and 1.9 Support

The Magmi project needs your help!

While Magmi is being used on Magento Community Edition 1.8 and 1.9 installations with very little or no issues, additional testing is required to make sure it's stable and ready for production use. Developers using Magento CE 1.8.x or CE 1.9.x are encouraged to provide bug reports for any issues or incompatibilities that have been discovered.


Magmi now features shared Magento authentication out of the box.

Upon installing Magmi and visiting the web panel for the first time, the default username and password are both set to "magmi". Once successfully logged in, configure Magmi with the Magento database credentials (under Configure Global Parameters) and then save the settings. Afterwards, one can simply use their Magento administrative (backend) credentials to login to Magmi.

Apache and PHP-CGI/FPM Auth Issues

By default, PHP-CGI/FPM under Apache does not pass HTTP authentication credentials to PHP processes for authorization. If one is unable to login to Magmi, a few minor changes to Apache's configuration may be required.

First, create a .htaccess file inside the magmi/web folder and then add the following lines:

 RewriteEngine On
 RewriteCond %{HTTP:Authorization} ^(.+)$
 RewriteRule .* - [E=HTTP_AUTHORIZATION:%{HTTP:Authorization}]

A sample .htaccess file has been provided under the same folder. Simply copy .htaccess-sample-php_cgi_fpm to .htaccess.

Additionally, the following line might be needed in your Apache VirtualHost configuration (or .htccess) if using Apache's mod_proxy_fcgi:

 SetEnvIfNoCase ^Authorization$ "(.+)" HTTP_AUTHORIZATION=$1

.ini File Warning

While the authentication protects your Magmi web interface from unauthorised logins, it doesn't protect you from a poorly configured server.

Magmi uses .ini files to store it's configuration, and some servers will serve these files as plain text files if the are requested directly.

There is never a reason to serve .ini files to end users on a Magento platform, so ensure that your server is configured not to!
