These are the minimum server requirements recommended for sites running BuddyBoss smoothly and with all functionality working as intended.
Required Server Software Packages
- PHP version 7.3 or greater – 7.3 or greater for optimal performance
- MySQL version 5.6 or greater OR MariaDB version 10.1 or greater
- WordPress version 4.9.1 or greater – We recommend installing WordPress manually and NOT via a hosting provider self-install (e.g. fantastico, softalicious, etc.)
- Apache Module mod_rewrite
- PHP GD or imagick modules – WordPress will fail to create images and will NOT show an error
- AllowOverride should be set to All in folders where .htaccess is located
Before Installing We Recommend
- Backing up your database and files
- VPS Hosting or better – Social communities increase server resource load with each concurrently logged in user. Shared hosting will provide a very slow experience.
