Installing Shopware 6

The below example demonstrates the from-scratch setup of the Shopware 6 application for local development. A similar process can easily be used to configure an environment of any other type. This assumes that Warden has been previously started via warden svc up as part of the installation procedure.

  1. Create a new directory on your host machine at the location of your choice and then jump into the new directory to get started:

    mkdir -p ~/Sites/exampleproject
    cd ~/Sites/exampleproject
    
  2. From the root of your new project directory, run env-init to create the .env file with configuration needed for Warden and Docker to work with the project.

    warden env-init exampleproject shopware
    

    The result of this command is a .env file in the project root (tip: commit this to your VCS to share the configuration with other team members) having the following contents:

    WARDEN_ENV_NAME=exampleproject
    WARDEN_ENV_TYPE=shopware
    WARDEN_WEB_ROOT=/
    
    TRAEFIK_DOMAIN=exampleproject.test
    TRAEFIK_SUBDOMAIN=app
    
    WARDEN_DB=1
    WARDEN_REDIS=1
    WARDEN_RABBITMQ=0
    WARDEN_ELASTICSEARCH=0
    WARDEN_VARNISH=0
    
    MARIADB_VERSION=10.4
    NODE_VERSION=10
    COMPOSER_VERSION=2
    PHP_VERSION=7.4
    PHP_XDEBUG_3=1
    RABBITMQ_VERSION=3.8
    REDIS_VERSION=5.0
    VARNISH_VERSION=6.0
    
  3. Sign an SSL certificate for use with the project (the input here should match the value of TRAEFIK_DOMAIN in the above .env example file):

    warden sign-certificate exampleproject.test
    
  4. Configure the project to use ./webroot so the Shopware installer won’t overwrite Warden’s .env file

    perl -pi -e 's#^WARDEN_WEB_ROOT.*#WARDEN_WEB_ROOT=/webroot#' .env
    
  5. Clone the Shopware development template

    git clone git@github.com:shopware/development.git ./webroot
    
  6. Next you’ll want to start the project environment:

    warden env up
    

    Warning

    If you encounter an error about Mounts denied, follow the instructions in the error message and run warden env up again.

  7. Drop into a shell within the project environment. Commands following this step in the setup procedure will be run from within the php-fpm docker container this launches you into:

    warden shell
    
  8. Configure the APP_URL Shopware will use during installation:

    echo $'const:\n  APP_URL: "https://app.exampleproject.test"\n' > .psh.yaml.override
    
  9. Install the Shopware application complete with sample data:

    ./psh.phar install
    
  10. Launch the application in your browser:

Note

The default username for Shopware 6 is admin with password shopware.

Note

To completely destroy the exampleproject environment we just created, run warden env down -v to tear down the project’s Docker containers, volumes, etc.
