        The Buckaroo Payments Plugin for Magento 1 enables a ready-to-sell payment gateway.
        You can choose from popular online payment methods in The Netherlands, Belgium, France, Germany and globally.

        We recommend first installing the plugin in a test environment and make a back-up of your webshop before you do the installation. Make sure that you've made a backup.

        Composer installation

        It is possible to install the Buckaroo plugin with composer.
        Easy to install, update and maintain.

        1. Installation

        Login with SSH and execute the following commands via the command line:

        composer require buckaroo/magento1

        2. Extension activation and updates

        Execute the following commands via the command line:

        cp -ra vendor/buckaroo/magento1/app/* YOUR_MAGENTO_INSTALLATION_ROOT/app
        cp -ra vendor/buckaroo/magento1/skin/* YOUR_MAGENTO_INSTALLATION_ROOT/skin

        3. File access rights

        Depending on the operating system, make sure the just added files have the correct access rights so that the web server can access and execute the files correctly.

        The composer command can be executed by the logged in user on the server which is sometimes not the same as the user of the web server. The files created by composer can not be read by the web server which can lead to unexpected behaviour.

        Composer will install the files in:


        4. Flush cache and sessions

        Flush your Magento cache using the following command:

        rm -rf MAGENTO_INSTALLATION_ROOT/var/cache/*
        rm -rf MAGENTO_INSTALLATION_ROOT/var/session/*

        The installation is now completed.

        Update the extension

        To be able to make use of the latest features and bugfixes you should update the extension frequently. To do this you have to execute the following commands and flush your Magento cache.

        composer update buckaroo/magento1
