About Joomla!

What are the requirements to run Joomla! 2.5?

Joomla! runs on the PHP pre-processor. PHP comes in many flavours, for a lot of operating systems. Beside PHP you will need a Web server. Joomla! is optimized for the Apache Web server, but it can run on different Web servers like Microsoft IIS it just requires additional configuration of PHP and MySQL. Joomla! also depends on a database, for this currently you can only use MySQL.

 Many people know from their own experience that it's not easy to install an Apache Web server and it gets harder if you want to add MySQL, PHP and Perl. XAMPP, WAMP, and MAMP are easy to install distributions containing Apache, MySQL, PHP and Perl for the Windows, Mac OSX and Linux operating systems. These packages are for localhost installations on non-public servers only.

The minimal Joomla 2.5 server requirements are as follows:

  • PHP 5.2.4 or above;
  • MySQL 5.0.4 or above;
  • Apache 1.3.42 or 2.x or above;

The following additional server-side configuration is recommended:

  • PHP in suEXEC mod running as a CGI wrapper, especially suitable on shared hosting;
  • register_globals turned off in PHP;
  • Linux OS platform.
