A fork of Magento-1 that is accepting bug fixes (backward compatible, drop in replacement for official Magento)
This package is auto-updated.
Last update: 2023-11-28 18:24:01 UTC
This repository is the home of an unofficial community-driven project. It's goal is to be a dependable alternative to the Magento CE official releases which integrates improvements directly from the community while maintaining a high level of backwards compatibility to the official releases.
Pull requests with bug fixes and security patches from the community are encouraged and welcome!

This project more strictly adheres to Semantic Versioning compared to the original Magento version numbering system where the "1" was essentially a fixed number. See the Terminology section of RFC 0002 - Release Schedule for more information on how the terms MAJOR, MINOR and PATCH are defined and applied.
The OpenMage team and community maintains OpenMage LTS versions as follows:
- The latest MAJOR.MINOR version always receives PATCH updates.
- The latest MAJOR version always receives MINOR updates.
- The latest MAJOR.MINOR branch for each MAJOR version receives PATCH updates for at least 2 years from the time of inception of the initial MAJOR version release.
In a nutshell:
- If you want to stay on the cutting edge with the latest improvements use the latest MAJOR version.
- If you want maximum backwards compatibility and minimal upgrade hassle use the next-latest MAJOR version so that you can still receive important security/stability/regression fixes.
- 20.x is the latest MAJOR version and will receive PATCH updates until 2 years after the date that 21.x is released.
- 19.4.x will receive PATCH updates until April 4, 2025.

Download the latest release archive and extract it over your existing install. Important: you must download the ZIP file from a tagged version on the releases page, otherwise there will be missing dependencies.
Step 1: Create a new composer project:
Step 2: Configure composer. The below options are required. You can see all options here.
# Allow composer to apply patches to dependencies of magento-lts composer config --json extra.enable-patching true # Configure Magento core composer installer to use magento-lts as the Magento source package composer config extra.magento-core-package-type magento-source # Configure the root directory that magento-lts will be installed to, such as "pub", "htdocs", or "www" composer config extra.magento-root-dir pub
Step 3: Require
# PHP 7 composer require "aydin-hassan/magento-core-composer-installer":"~2.0.0" # PHP 8 composer require "aydin-hassan/magento-core-composer-installer":"^2.1.0"
Note: be sure to select
y if composer asks you to trust
Step 4: Require the appropriate version of
# Latest tagged v20 series release composer require "openmage/magento-lts":"^20.0.0" # Legacy v19 tagged release (Magento 1.9.4.x drop-in replacement supported until April 4, 2025) composer require "openmage/magento-lts":"^19.4.0" # Latest on "main" development branch composer require "openmage/magento-lts":"dev-main" # Latest on "next" development branch composer require "openmage/magento-lts":"dev-next"
Note: be sure to select
y if composer asks you to trust
When deploying to a production environment, it's recommended to optimize Composer's autoloader to speed up classes lookup time:
composer dump-autoload --optimize
If you want to contribute to the project:

Don't use common paths like /admin for OpenMage Backend URL. Don't use the path in robots.txt and keep it secret. You can change it from Backend (System / Configuration / Admin / Admin Base Url) or by editing app/etc/local.xml:
<config> <admin> <routers> <adminhtml> <args> <frontName><![CDATA[admin]]></frontName> </args> </adminhtml> </routers> </admin> </config>
Don't use common file names like api.php for OpenMage API URLs to prevent attacks. Don't use the new file name in robots.txt and keep it secret with your partners. After renaming the file you must update the webserver configuration as follows:
RewriteRule ^api/rest api.php?type=rest [QSA,L]
rewrite ^/api/(\w+).*$ /api.php?type=$1 last;`
OpenMage LTS 19.4.0 is the first tagged version using the OpenMage LTS version naming system and all 19.x versions are mostly backward-compatible with Magento 1.9.4.x.
OpenMage LTS 20.x and later have more changes that may not be 100% backward-compatible, but minimizing migration and upgrade hassle for users is always considered an important goal and factors heavily into the changes that are accepted even when accepting changes for "MAJOR" releases, described in Releases and Versioning above.
Most important changes will be listed here, all other changes since
19.4.0 can be found in

For full list of changes, you can compare tags.
PHP 7.4 is now the minimum required version.
Most of the 3rd party libraries/modules that were bundled in our repository were removed and migrated to composer dependencies. This allows for better maintenance and upgradability.
- Zend Framework 1 (#2827)
If your project uses OpenMage through composer then all dependencies will be managed automatically.
If you just extracted the release zip/tarball in your project's main folder then be sure to:
remove the old copy of aforementioned libraries from your project, you can do that with this command:
rm -rf app/code/core/Zend lib/Cm lib/Credis lib/mcryptcompat lib/Pelago lib/phpseclib lib/Zend
download the new release zip file that is named
openmage-VERSIONNUMBER.zip, this one is built to contain the
vendorfolder generated by composer, with all the dependencies in it
extract the zip file in your project's repository as you always did
We also decided to remove our Zend_DB patches (that were stored in
app/code/core/Zend) because they were very old and
not compatible with the new implementations made by ZF1-Future, which is much more advanced and feature rich.
This may generate a problem with `Zend_Db_Select' statements that do not use 'Zend_Db_Expr' to quote expressions.
If you see SQL errors after upgrading please remember to check for this specific issue in your code.
UPS shut down their old CGI APIs so we removed the support for it from the Mage_Usa module.
- PHP 8.1 as minimum required version
- Removed scriptaculous/dragdrop.js (#3215)
- RWD theme: updated jQuery to 3.7.0 (#3204)
- Unified CSRF configuration (#3147) and added form key validation to Contacts form (#3146)
- Removed double span element from HTML buttons (#3123)
- Removed all deprecated Mysql4_ classes (#2730). If there are any old modules/extensions in your installation that use such classes, you must run
shell/rename-mysql4-class-to-resource.phpin the command line in order to convert them. Backup all files before running the script
- Removed "admin routing compatibility mode" (#1551)
20.0.15 we changed the
targetNamespace of all the WSDL files (used in the API modules), from
If your custom modules extends OpenMage's APIs with a custom WSDL file and there are some hardcoded
targetNamespace="urn:Magento" strings, your APIs may stop working.
Please replace all occurrences of
to avoid any problem.
To find which files need the modification you can run this command from the root directory of your project.
grep -rn 'urn:Magento' --include \*.xml
- Install ddev
- Clone the repository as described in installation (Git)
- Create a ddev config, defaults should be good for you
.ddev/config.yamland change the php version to your needs
- Download and start the containers
- Open your site in browser
This repo includes class maps for the core Magento files in
To add class maps for installed extensions, you have to install N98-magerun
and run command:
You can add additional meta files in this directory to cover your own project files. See PhpStorm advanced metadata for more information.
