The required server hardware is mostly dependent on the number of articles available in your shop and on the expected traffic (visitors per day). The requirements are covered by most hosting providers and certified hosters should be able to provide a suitable configuration.
Please bear in mind, that these values are absolute minimum requirements. When you are using Shopware in a high-traffic-environment or you have substantial amounts of items in your shop, we highly recommend upgrading your server resources.
The requirements specified above reflect only the minimum requirements of Shopware. Specific hardware requirements vary depending on the size and expected traffic of your shop. Additional server configuration may be required. Plug-ins installed in your shop may increase Shopware's need for resources or add additional system dependencies. Please refer to each plugin's documentation for more information.
The above requirements reflect the officially supported and recommended system setup to run Shopware on. However, you might be able to run Shopware on equivalent setups (Mac OS, nginx, MariaDB, etc).
Please keep in mind that we are unable to provide official support for setting up servers and other setups. Setting up an alternative server including all mandatory system requirements is the task of the respective hosting partner.
The administration of your shop can be done completely online via a web browser. The following requirements should be met by any client system that uses the administration backend. These requirements differ from the frontend user system requirements.
