Installation

In this chapter, the installation of the PayPal module for the OXID eShop version 6.2 is described.

System requirements

The system requirements given below apply to the PayPal module. In addition, the PayPal module only works if OXID eShop was configured for SSL mode.

  • PHP from 7.1 to 7.4
  • cURL
  • OpenSSL

New installation

If the shop was set up as OXID eShop Compilation, the matching version of the PayPal module is already integrated. It simply has to be activated and configured via the admin panel.

step Installing the PayPal module

In case that the module has to be manually integrated into the shop, it has to be downloaded from the repository and installed. Therefore, the following Composer command has to be used on the command line at the root directory of the shop:

composer require oxid-esales/paypal-module:^6.0.0

step Setting permissions for the logging

Change the permission of /modules/oe/oepaypal/logs. Grant full write permission for owner and group (755 or 777).

step Activating the module

The PayPal module has to be activated in the shop. In the Overview tab of the module, click the Activate button.

step Deleting temporary files

Delete all files and folders except for .htaccess from the /tmp folder of your shop.


Update installation

step Deleting module files

In case you have to update the module separately, delete all files and folders in /source/modules/oe/oepaypal.

step Installing the PayPal module

Install the current module using the following Composer command on the command line at the root directory of the shop:

composer require oxid-esales/paypal-module:^6.0.0

step Finishing update

Finish the update installation (like described above) by setting the permissions for the logging, activating the module in the admin panel and by deleting the temporary files.
