OXID eShop version 4.8.6 (CE + PE) & 5.1.6 (EE)

General hints for this package

  • Runs on PHP 5.4 and PHP 5.3. Might run on PHP 5.2 (not tested any longer).
  • In case the license key can’t be checked in OXID eShop Professional or Enterprise Edition, the shop owner will be informed via a e-mail that the “silent countdown” started (this was introduced in eShop 4.8.5/5.1.5) which will be addressed to eShop info e-mail address. It will be sent 2 times and triggered on eShop page load. First when silent count down starts and the second, when will be left less than 24 hours.
  • Due to the new Consumer Right Directive this release includes template and db schema changes.
