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 5.5 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 -R 755 custom/plugins
chmod -R 755 engine/Shopware/Plugins/Community
chmod -R 755 files
chmod -R 755 media
chmod -R 755 var
chmod -R 755 web

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 root directory of your shopware system and download the test images:

wget -O

For older Shopware versions < 5.1

wget -O

Unzip the files inside the root directory:


You can now access your shop


The backend is located at /backend example Backend Login: demo/demo

The file includes thumbnails for the new responsive theme and the old deprecated template.

If you want to have full featured demo data, you should download the respective demo data plugin in the First Run Wizard or in the Plugin Manager.

How to report bugs / request features?

We've always had a sympathetic ear for our community, so please feel free to submit tickets with bug reports or feature requests. In order to have a single issue tracking tool, we've decided to close the GitHub issue panel in favor of our Jira issue tracker, which is directly connected to our development division.
