Before you proceed to setting up your PrestaShop eCommerce, please make sure you are fully prepared. Please check the following points:

Editing software

To feel comfortable working with your PrestaShop template, we recommend you to download all required applications. You can see the list of required software on the template preview page. Requirements may vary depending on the template. We're going to tell you in general what's needed:

  1. First of all, you need application to extract the password protected archive. You can use WinZip 9+ (Windows) and Stuffit Expander 10+ (Mac).
  2. You may also need Adobe Photoshop application. It's used to edit .PSD source files and it's necessary if you want to edit template design graphics and images.
  3. To edit the template source code files, you need some code editor like Adobe Dreamweaver, Notepad++, Sublime Text, etc.
  4. To upload files to the hosting server, you may need an FTP Manager like Total Commander, FileZilla, CuteFTP, etc.

Server requirements

Please make sure your hosting server meets the PrestaShop requirements:

  • System: Unix, Linux or Windows. Unix is highly recommended.
  • Web server: Apache Web server 2.2 or any later version, Microsoft's IIS Web server 6.0 or later, and nginx 1.0 or later.
  • We recommend PHP 7.1 or later.
  • MySQL 5.0 minimum, 5.6 or later recommended.
  • At least 128 Mb of RAM on your server (64 Mb is comfortable, the more the better).

PrestaShop will work with PHP 5.1 or later, but the versions lower than 5.4 have bugs which might prevent some functions from working as expected (like invalid date timezone).

In order to run PrestaShop 1.7.x properly, your PHP installation must feature the following settings:

  • magic_quotes_gpc=off
  • memory_limit=512M
  • max_execution_time=300
  • max_input_time=300
  • upload_max_filesize=100M
  • post_max_size=20M
  • max_input_vars=10000
  • allow_url_fopen=on
  • safe_mode=off

Using the local server

You can run PrestaShop locally on your computer using the local server. To create a local hosting server, please use the localhost applications, such as WAMP, AppServ, XAMP, etc. Any of those can be easily installed as any other program and used to run PrestaShop.


To install PrestaShop, you need to download the PrestaShop engine package from the official website at

Just insert your name and e-mail into the Download box input and click the 'Download' button.

Extracting Files

Once the PrestaShop engine package is downloaded, you will need to extract its files and folders from the archive.

This can be done with any archive manager like WinZip (Windows), StuffitExpander (Mac), etc.

Please check the following tutorials on how to extract files from the archives with WinZip (Windows) and StuffitExpander (Mac).

Please note: if your hosting control panel has the option to 'Extract' files, you can use it to extract the files directly on your server after the .zip file is uploaded.

Uploading PrestaShop engine files

If you have extracted the files locally to your computer, you will need to upload them to your hosting server.

This can be done using the hosting control panel File Manager or third party FTP Manager applications like FileZilla, TotalCommander, CuteFTP, etc.

You can check the detailed video tutorial on how to upload files to server using FTP manager and how to upload files to a server using cPanel (WebHost Manager, WHM).

Installation is complete

This is the final step of the installation.

For security reasons you need to delete the /install/ directory on your hosting server.

Starting with version 1.5.4, PrestaShop takes care of renaming the administration folder for you: it becomes the word "admin" followed by 4 random digits, i.e. "admin8814." The renaming happens as soon as you reach the "admin" folder for the first time: PrestaShop renames it, then correctly accesses the renamed folder.

Log into the PrestaShop back office by going to your newly renamed "admin" folder, and start filling your catalog with your data.

If you face any difficulties, please check the official PrestaShop installation manual.

Useful resources

W3C validation

Both HTML markup and CSS styles used in our templates are semantically correct and valid. However, some W3C errors still can take place. Making code 100% W3C valid eliminates the usage of modern website technologies as CSS3 features and HTML5 markup. Our goal is to deliver rich user experience with high quality templates and sometimes we have to break some rules.
