Shopware CMS is becoming more popular in the E-commerce business each day. Lots of aspects are similar to a Magento environment, so why should you not be able to host Shopware on Hypernode? There are already several shopware shops running successfully on Hypernode! All you need to do is add a Shopware 5 specifix Nginx configuration file to your environment.

What is Shopware?

Shopware is an e-commerce system roughly the same as Magento and both have the same basic components. Both systems:
– make use of the same technology stack (NGINX, PHP, MySQL, RabbitMQ, etc);
– deal with the same challenges, such as ‘light’ product images and continuous processes that generate a lot of load;
– heavily rely on a good performance and a smooth checkout;
– make use of external systems like PIM’s and payment providers;
– and are dealing with the same user behavior;

Configuring Hypernode for Shopware 5

All you need is to add a Shopware 5 specific Nginx configuration file, let’s name it server.shopware, to /data/web/nginx and you are ready to go. It consists of a few modules containing security related, general optimizations and rewrites to make Shopware 5 work and be secure and optimized at the same time.

**Shopware 6 doesn’t need this config-file!
