Crowdin Scrutinizer Code Quality Build Status


GPLCart is an open source e-commerce platform based on the classical LAMP stack (Linux+ Apache+Mysql+PHP). It's free, simple and extensible solution that allows you to build online shops fast and easy. GplCart is not a fork of an existing software. It's completely unique, made "with blood, sweat and tears" from the scratch.


  • PHP 5.4+, Mysql 5+, Apache 1+

Also you'll need the following extension enabled:

  • PDO
  • FileInfo
  • SPL
  • JSON
  • GD
  • Mb string
  • Mod Rewrite


GPLCart has some default dependencies (Jquery etc) which should be downloaded separately using Composer. If you have downloaded GPLCart manually, make sure that all 3-d party libraries are in place by running composer update

The recommended installation process:

Download the files (including dependencies) into test directory

composer create-project gplcart/gplcart test --stability dev --no-interaction

then perform full installation:

  1. cd test
  2. php gplcart install

In one line: composer create-project gplcart/gplcart test --stability dev --no-interaction && cd test && php gplcart install
