About this repository
This repository contains the latest version of PrestaShop: version 1.6. You can learn more about the new features of this version on the progress page.
Clicking the "Download ZIP" button from the root of this repository will download the current state of PrestaShop 1.6 -- a branch that is in active development, and ready for production use. Note that the ZIP file will not contain the default modules: you need to make a recursive clone using Git in order to download these files too. See CONTRIBUTING.md for more information about using Git.
To install PrestaShop, you need a web server running PHP 5 and any flavor of MySQL 5 (MySQL, MariaDB, Percona Server, etc.).
You will also need a database administration tool, such as phpMyAdmin, in order to create a database for PrestaShop.
We recommend the Apache or Nginx web servers.
If your host does not offer PHP 5 by default, here are a few explanations about PHP 5 or the .htaccess file for certain hosting services (1&1, Free.fr, OVH, Infomaniak, Amen, GoDaddy, etc.).
If you want your own store with nothing to download and install, visit http://www.prestabox.com: it lets you create your online store in less than 10 minutes without any technical knowledge.
Once the files in the PrestaShop archive have been decompressed and uploaded on your hosting space, go to the root of your PrestaShop directory with your web browser, and the PrestaShop installer will start automatically. Follow the instructions until PrestaShop is installed.
If you get any PHP error, it might be that you do not have PHP 5 on your web server, or that you need to activate it. See this page for explanations about PHP 5, or contact your web host directly.
If you do not find any solution to start the installer, please post about your issue on the PrestaShop forums.
The official PrestaShop documentation is available online on its own website.
