What are the requirements to run my shop on Wunderfront?

Setting up an online store with WooCommerce is like trying to organize a garage sale, except instead of old clothes, you're selling products that people actually want to buy. To make sure your store runs smoothly, you need a hosting environment that meets the minimum requirements. If your WordPress site falls short of these specifications, some plugins - possibly even the core WooCommerce plugin - won't function as expected, just like how no one will buy that chipped mug missing a handle.

To avoid such issues, take a glance at the WooCommerce Server Recommendations and optional items mentioned below. Think of it like using a pricing guide to make sure you don't accidentally sell that vintage record for 50 cents.

Server Requirements

Before installing WordPress and WooCommerce, ensure that your hosting environment satisfies the following criteria:

  • PHP version 7.4 or greater (if you're not sure what version you're using, just imagine it's like using outdated slang - nobody understands you anymore)
  • MySQL version 5.6 or greater OR MariaDB version 10.1 or greater (just like how you need a bigger table to display more items for sale)
  • WordPress memory limit of 256 MB or greater (this is like having a big truck to transport all your items to the garage sale)
  • HTTPS support (because who wants to buy something from a sketchy-looking garage sale)

Also, verify whether your WordPress meets the requirements, or else you'll end up like that neighbor who tried to sell a half-eaten sandwich.

It is important to note that PHP versions older than 7.3+ and MySQL versions lower than 5.6 are like those old VHS tapes - they're no longer cool or relevant. They no longer receive active support, and many of them are at the End of Life stage, indicating that they are no longer maintained. As a result, using unsupported and obsolete versions of MySQL and PHP could make your site vulnerable to security risks, just like how selling a rusty old bike without brakes is a liability waiting to happen.
