1 Preparations

The PrestaShop e-commerce engine requires a MySQL database to store data. Prior to installing PrestaShop, please make sure you have already created a MySQL database. This can be done through your hosting control panel using the phpMyAdmin tool.

Please check the detailed tutorial on how to create a MySQL database. If any issues occur, please contact your hosting provider for further assistance. While installing your MySQL database, you will need to specify the database name, username, password and the database server. Remember these details as you will need them for PrestaShop installation.

Please make sure your hosting server meets the PrestaShop requirements:

  • System: Unix, Linux or Windows. Unix is highly recommended.
  • Web server: Apache Web server 1.3 or later, Microsoft’s IIS Web server 6.0 or later.
  • PHP 5.2* or later.
  • MySQL 5.0 or later.
