Server Requirements

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.
