Upgrade Your PHP Version

The latest version of Shopware 5 need at least PHP version 7.2 to be able to run. So the first thing to do is upgrade your PHP version to 7.2 with the following command:

hypernode-systemctl settings php_version --value 7.2

Add the Shopware Nginx Config File

To be able to host Shopware on Hypernode you need to add an nginx config file so the server knows where to find the Shopware installation. You can add the server.shopware config file according to our documentation

Download and Install the Latest version of Shopware 5

cd ~/public/
wget https://releases.shopware.com/install_5.6.2_6cadc5c14bad4ea8839395461ea42dbc359e9666.zip
Unzip the downloaded .zip file
unzip install_5.6.2_6cadc5c14bad4ea8839395461ea42dbc359e9666.zip

Install Shopware 5

Before you proceed with the installation you need to create a database for Shopware. In this example we name it "shopware", of course you can name it however you seem fit. 

echo "create database shopware" | mysql

Now open your browser and browse to https://APPNAME.hypernode.io/recovery/install/index.php

At this point you can follow the guide through your browser. Make sure to fill in the right details at the Configure database:

  • Database server: localhost
  • Database user: app
  • Database password: run cat ~/.my.cnf in your terminal and copy that password.
  • Database name: Select your database

Now fill in the Basic shop set-up however you see fit.

Done! You've now successfully installed Shopware 5. 

Demo data

If you'd like you could install demo data as well. To do this you'll need to login the backend: http://APPNAME.hypernode.io/backend/ with the credentials you entered during the step: Basic shop set-up at the installation. At your first login you'll see the "First Run Wizard". Make sure to install the Demo data at the "Demo data" menu.
