Basic application

Full shop application

If you want to set up a new application or test Aimeos, we recommend the Aimeos shop application. You need composer 2.1+ to install Aimeos.

It will install a complete shop system including demo data for a quick start without the need to follow the steps described in this readme.

Shop package only

The Aimeos Laravel online shop package is a composer based library. It can be installed easiest by using Composer 2.1+ in the root directory of your exisisting Laravel application:


Make sure that you've created the database in advance and added the configuration to the .env file in your application directory. Sometimes, using the .env file makes problems and you will get exceptions that the connection to the database failed. In that case, add the database credentials to the resource/db section of your ./config/shop.php file too!

If you don't have at least MySQL 5.7.8 or MariaDB 10.2.2 installed, you will probably get an error like

To circumvent this problem, drop the new tables if there have been any created and change the charset/collation setting in ./config/database.php to these values before installing Aimeos again:

Caution: Also make sure that your MySQL server creates InnoDB tables by default as MyISAM tables won't work and will result in an foreign key constraint error!

If you want to use a database server other than MySQL, please have a look into the article about supported database servers and their specific configuration. Supported are:


Then, add these lines to the composer.json of the Laravel skeleton application:

Afterwards, install the Aimeos shop package using

composer update

In the last step you must now execute these artisan commands to get a working or updated Aimeos installation:

In a production environment or if you don't want that the demo data gets installed, leave out the --option=setup/default/demo:1 option.


You have to set up one of Laravels authentication starter kits. Laravel Breeze is the easiest one but your can also use Jetstream.

Configure authentication

As a last step, you need to extend the boot() method of your App\Providers\AuthServiceProvider class and add the lines to define how authorization for "admin" is checked in app/Providers/AuthServiceProvider.php:

Create account

Test if your authentication setup works before you continue. Create an admin account for your Laravel application so you will be able to log into the Aimeos admin interface:

The e-mail address is the user name for login and the account will work for the frontend too. To protect the new account, the command will ask you for a password. The same command can create limited accounts by using "--admin", "--editor" or "--api" instead of "--super" (access to everything).


To reference images correctly, you have to adapt your .env file and set the APP_URL to your real URL, e.g.

Caution: Make sure, Laravel uses the file session driver in your .env file! Otherwise, the shopping basket content won't get stored correctly!

If your ./public directory isn't writable by your web server, you have to create these directories:

In a production environment, you should be more specific about the granted permissions!


Then, you should be able to call the catalog list page in your browser. For a quick start, you can use the integrated web server. Simply execute this command in the base directory of your application:


Point your browser to the list page of the shop using:

Note: Integrating the Aimeos package adds some routes like /shop or /admin to your Laravel installation but the home page stays untouched! If you want to add Aimeos to the home page as well, replace the route for "/" in ./routes/web.php by this line:

For multi-vendor setups, read the article about multiple shops.

This will display the Aimeos catalog home component on the home page you you get a nice looking shop home page. The /shop page will look like:

Aimeos frontend


If you've still started the internal PHP web server (php artisan serve) you should now open this URL in your browser:

Enter the e-mail address and the password of the newly created user and press "Login". If you don't get redirected to the admin interface (that depends on the authentication code you've created according to the Laravel documentation), point your browser to the /admin URL again.

Caution: Make sure that you aren't already logged in as a non-admin user! In this case, login won't work because Laravel requires to log out first.

Aimeos backend


To simplify development, you should configure to use no content cache. You can do this in the config/shop.php file of your Laravel application by adding these lines at the bottom:
