PrestaShop 1.8? No, it's PrestaShop 8

Are you looking for PrestaShop 1.8? No, it's not existing. It is not the right name for this generation.

And PrestaShop 8 is the latest version of PrestaShop.

Welcome to the World of Open Source e-Commerce Platform.

PrestaShop 1.8

After releasing versions of Ps 1.4, Ps 1.5, PrestaShop 1.6 and PrestaShop 1.7, the PrestaShop team decided to make a big change: No more PS 1.x.

They jumped from 1.7 to 8.

I think it was a big jump. Honestly, I don't like the number 1.x.

A quick look at PrestaShop 8.0

PS 8.0 is the current version of the 8 generation of the PrestaShop platform. And it's a big improvement over the beta version.

And of course, there are no more beta versions.

This new version has the same design as the previous version, but was made to be faster and more user-friendly. It is available for free download.

The main thing that has meaning a lot: It supports PHP 8.

This is a great opportunity to make sure your online store is up and running as quickly as possible.

A note when you upgrade from PrestaShop 1.7 to 8.0

Are you upgrading from 1.7.8 to 8.0? Me, too.

I have 1 real PrestaShop store that is running on this version + PHP 8 + OpenLiteSpeed server.

The PrestaShop installation of version 8.0 on the OpenLiteSpeed server is also relatively convenient. Damn this is easy to install.

PrestaShop 8 final

You can check out the website's speed of the Age Restriction 18+ module's demo with this PrestaShop version from here.

This website is a combination of a classic theme and the Age Restriction 18+ module. So, everything is basic configuration.

But there are a few things to keep in mind: not all modules are compatible with the stable version of 8. So, do not forget to check the PrestaShop compatibility before upgrading your PrestaShop website.

My favourite combo: OpenLiteSpeed server + PHP 8.

Just make sure the existing PrestaShop theme and any PrestaShop addons are compatible with PrestaShop 8 + PHP 8, and you can enjoy OpenLiteSpeed's high speed.

We're upgrading our modules to make sure they're compatible with this version.

Let's skip the 1.8 & enjoy the 8 version.
