Basic Requirements

For full requirement list, please refer to wiki documentation.

Website
You must have a website (domain and hosting) in order to install the software. The software does not run on your PC, it runs on the actual computer ("web server") that hosts your web pages.

Apache Web Server
Although Vivvo can work on any web server supporting PHP and MySQL, it is highly recommended to have Apache web server installed on your server. For optimal performance, we also recommend VPS or Dedicated server.

PHP 5
Your web server must have PHP 5.0 or greater, with 5.2+ being highly recommended. Your network administrator can download the latest version of PHP from http://php.net. PHP is extremely common though, and installed on virtually every webserver on Earth.

MySQL 4+
Your web server must be setup to allow database access. MySQL 4.1 or later required. MySQL 5 is highly recommended.
