MySQL 5.0.33 or higher Due to a bug in MySQL 5.0.36 and 5.0.37 as well as 5.0.41, the OXID eShop does not run properly with these versions. If you are using MySQL 5.0.36 or 5.0.37, update MySQL to a newer version.
SUPER privileges for the database user during the installation process.
PHP 5.2.10 or above. We recommend PHP 5.2.17 (OXID eShop also runs with PHP versions from 5.2.0 to 5.2.9, but for those versions perfect functionality is not garanteed)
memory_limit must be at least 32MB. We recommend memory_limit set to 60MB
PHP setting "session.auto_start" in php.ini has to be set "OFF"
We recommend to enable file uploads in PHP
Activated allow_url_fopen or fsockopen on port 80 possible
Apache server variablen REQUEST_URI or SCRIPT_URI must be set
PHP4 compatibility mode must be set off. (zend.ze1_compatibility_mode = Off)
ini_set allowedregister_globals off
PHP extensions that must be installed:
GDlib version 2.x
MySQL client connector for MySQL5
For optimum performance we also recommend:
Installed ZEND Platform Version 3.5
Installed database cluster
It may be necessary to use a separate server depending on the server load (preferably in managed operation). In the event of an increasing load the operation of a server farm with load balancing function and a database cluster is to be considered. Here is an overview of the possible operating conditions, which are based on the following assumptions:
Number of categories is 20% of the number of items, e.g. 1,000 items = 200 categories
The flow of visitors is distributed over more than 14 hours per day on averageThe item number also includes possible item variants
Despite this reduced functionality may be experienced during some intensive activities (e.g. exporting) – this depends on your provider (keywords PHP max_execution_time and memory_limit)
