  • Requirements for the server
    • Operating system: Linux
    • Apache 2.x and newer / IIS 7 and newer / nginx 1.x and newer
      • They recommend Apache 2.2 or later. Apache is very stable, well documented and is available on all platforms.
    • PHP: 5.2.0 and higher
      • If PHP is used in (Fast-)CGI mode, please use a newer version like PHP 5.2.4.
    • Database: at least MySQL 5, MariaDB 5, PostgreSQL 8.2, SQLite 3.0
      • They recommend using MySQL 5.x. Version 4.0 and 4.1 are no longer supported by MySQL (see this page). Version 5.0 has better performance for schema updates, better unicode support and it includes some great new features like views, stored procedures and triggers.
    • CPU: 1 GHz or more
    • RAM: 512 MB or more
    • Hard disk: 1 GB or more
      • The initial disk usage including caches is 75 MB, the database (MySQL) needs 250 KB to get started.
    • Hardware
      • For testing you can start with a desktop machine or a notebook. The exact hardware requirements depend on the number of (power-)users and how frequently the system is used by them. With many users, you might use a dedicated server for the database and increase the amount of RAM and CPUs. You can also increase the number of web servers and database servers. When doing performance tests, please make sure to disable DoS protection in setup settings.
    • Customization
      • Since Simple Groupware is Open Source, you are not restricted to a special company. If you need special customizations for your business or some extra support level, you can easily hire the programmer or company of your choice.
    • Security
      • It is recommended to install the latest security updates for the operating system and its components (Apache / PHP / MySQL).
      • Using a shared hosting platform can cause unwanted downtime, resource fluctuation, and security problems.
      • If you want to provide better security for your data, use a dedicated server and make sure to limit physical access to a limited number of people.
  • Requirements for the client
    • Supported browsers
      • Firefox 1.x and higher
        • It runs on most popular operating systems like Windows, MacOS and Linux. Furthermore it is free and can be run without an installation.
        • Firefox is used for testing, development and support. Other browsers like Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari or Konqueror don't provide all the features (e.g. the WYSIWYG-editor) or have limitations in the layout.
      • Opera 9 and higher
        • Opera runs much better than other browsers on machines with slower CPUs and/or less RAM. Therefore Opera is recommended on slower machines and mobile devices (esp. those running Windows Mobile 2003/2005).
      • Safari 2.x
      • Internet Explorer 6.0 and higher
  • Browser configuration
    • Javascript needs to be enabled
    • Cookies need to be accepted
    • NOT required: Flash, Java, ActiveX
