Preparing the installation

For a new installation the current installation package is required.
If you want to create your shop on the basis of an Enterprise Edition, please contact the Sales department. You can use the form Contact us for this purpose.

Please download OXID eShop Community Edition from this site.

All the files for OXID eShop 4&5 are included in the .zip archive. Unzip the installation package locally. Usually no additional program is required for that, because current operation systems have it as a standard application.

Copy the shop files with an FTP program into a browser-accessible directory of your web server. You will receive the server access data from your OXID Hosting partner or Internet Service provider (ISP). Please keep in mind that files should be transferred in binary mode and that the hidden files, like .htaccess, should be considered.
