Shopware Server Requirements

  • PHP 5.4.0 or above
  • PHP's cURL and GD library
  • An Apache web server
  • Apache's mod_rewrite module
  • MySQL 5.5.0 or above

Installation via Git

Follow the instruction below if you want to install Shopware 5 using Git.

1.) Clone the git repository to the desired location using:

git clone

In case you wish to contribute to Shopware, fork the 5.1 branch rather than cloning it, and create a pull request via Github. For further information please read the section "Get involved" of this document.

2.) Set the correct directory permissions:

chmod 755 config.php
chmod -R 755 var
chmod -R 755 web
chmod -R 755 files
chmod -R 755 media
chmod -R 755 engine/Shopware/Plugins/Community

Depending on your server configuration, it might be necessary to set whole write permissions (777) to the files and folders above. You can also start testing with lower permissions due to security reasons (644 for example) as long as your php process can write to those files.

3.) An Ant Buildfile is used to set up the configuration and database connection:

cd build/
ant configure
ant build-unit

4.) Download the test images and extract them:

Go to the checkout directory and download the test images:

wget -O

Unzip the files to the checkout directory:


You can now access your shop
