This Section has 2 upload panels

  • Update magmi release panel

This section may show an error if the ZipArchive class is not available in your php setup

Update magmi release panel

This should be used to update your magmi version.

Just select zip archive downloaded from [Magmi SF File Repository] and upload it.

Magmi auto unzips the archive (that will overwrite magmi dir) & should refresh once upload is done.

Update new plugins

Magmi plugins come into 2 forms:

  • Plugin packages (which is a bundle of several plugins in the same zip archive)
  • Individual plugins (which is the same kind of zip archive than above but with a single plugin inside)

Just select plugin zip archive downloaded from either

and upload it.

Magmi auto unzips the plugin(s) archive (that will be unzipped into magmi/plugins dir) & should refresh once upload is done.

  • On a fresh install, magmi run section is empty and its header invites you to save at least the default profile (click on the link “Save Profile (Default)” at the page bottom on the right).

Database Panel


The database panel lets you choose the connectivity mode you want to use with the magento Database

  • host/port (default mode) - connect to database by giving the host name & port
    • host : enter Mysql host name for magento DB (defaults to localhost)
    • port : enter Mysql port for magento DB (defaults to mysql base port : 3306)

    • unix socket : enter the name of the connection socket for accessing MySQL (defaults to /tmp/mysql.sock)

Standard options

  • DB Name : name of magento database
  • Username : name of user to access magento database
  • Password : password of user to access magento database
  • Table Prefix : if you chose to use a table prefix for your magento table, put it here (without the trailing _)

Magento Panel

  • Magento version

Choose your magento version (1.3.x to 1.6.x) are available.

in fact, 1.3.x is the only "specific" choice, all others are equivalent to magmi since DB has not evolved a lot since 1.4.

Magmi uses "smart" table reflection for tables that have moved a bit between 1.5 & 1.6

  • Filesystem Path to magento dir (defaults to ../.. - ie : magmi installed in magento dir)

if you installed magmi outside of magento dir, you should use the full absolute filesystem path that leads to your magento install directory.
