Running OXID eShop in a subdirectory

I’ve been asked several times how to run OXID eShop in a subdirectory like https://myluvelydomain.com/shop/. Actually, there are several methods to achieve this goal including the adaption of your apache vhost or via .htaccess forwarding. In this blog post I will describe how to use unix symlinks to resolve the situation as it is a very smart solution that can even be used to roll out and back between several versions of your project without any downtime.

How we temporarily handle the right to data portability (Art. 20 GDPR)

We’ve experienced requests concerning the “Right to data portability” (Art. 20 GDPR) on several channels. The legal text states someat like ” … receive the personal data … in a structured, commonly used and machine-readable format…”. As this is not a clear specification, provide an SQL script for reading out all relevant information from the database. Get the script from this blog post.

OXID eShop version 6.0.2

This patch update was extraordinarily pushed up to give you a proper time frame to establish the GDPR compliance with OXID eShop. Additionally, we started to introduce new principles of code writing in order to become more flexible, agile and innovative when changing the core. Anyway, this patch update contains bug fixes as well as loads of pull requests.
