Ready to Switch?

If you are looking to switch to OroCommerce 4.2 LTS, we do recommend familiarising with the minimum requirements needed for installing the software. 

If you’re on the Enterprise Edition, you’ll need the following:

  • PHP 7.4.14
  • PostgreSQL 12.0
  • Composer v2
  • PHP MongoDB extension 

The Community Edition supports MySQL 8.0 in place of PostgreSQL 12.0. For the full list of system requirements and recommendations for best performance, please view our OroCommerce system requirements page.

Some older OroCommerce versions have been transitioned to their next support phases. The full schedule is published on our release process documentation page.

If you’re on the Enterprise Edition 4.1 LTS, you’ll have plenty of time to switch, with access to security updates and fixes lasting until January 2023. Community Edition users should switch to the 4.2 LTS version as soon as possible to access patches through the year ahead.

In the meantime, we can’t wait to meet you, answer your questions, and assist you through another OroCommerce milestone.

Don’t wait until the last minute. Register now!
