Before you install Shopware 6, you should check that your server meets the system requirements. In this article we will show you what requirements your server should have.
Shopware generally supports most Unix-based operating systems. From experience we recommend to install Shopware 6 on Linux (e.g. Ubuntu).
Please note that Shopware is not designed to run on a Windows server.
Version 7.4.3 or higher
memory_limit 512M or higher
max_execution_time 30 seconds or higher
MySQL 5.7.21 or higher
MySQL versions 8.0.20 and 8.0.21 are not compatible due to technical problems in these versions.

Apache 2.4 or higher with active mod-rewrite

For database administration we recommend Adminer (https://www.adminer.org/) because it has better support for binary data types.
