Manual approach (for experienced users)

Manual editing of the database is suitable for experienced users who are familiar with the database.

Important: In the Shopware 6 Cloud currently is no possibility to reach the configuration via the database!

Backup for safety

To be safe, create a backup of the entire database before you make any changes here.

Tip: For quick access to the database, we like to use the Adminer extension for the Friends of Shopware admin.

Backup of the theme configuration

  1. Open the database (e.g. Adminer or phpMyAdmin)

  2. Use the search field to find the table "themes" (1)

  3. Open the table with "select" (2)

  4. Edit the data set of the desired theme (e.g. "TcinnThemeWareModern") with "edit" (3)

  5. Save the content of the column "config_values" (4) in a *.txt or *.json file to perform a "backup" of the current configuration

  6. Leave the database without saving changes
