Joomla Requirements

Post by Tonie » Tue Dec 06, 2005 8:52 am

I might have overlooked it, but might it be possible to have a Joomla requirements page somewhere in the menu of the help section? I have found this: http://help.joomla.org/content/view/108/62/ and a bit on the roadmap, these are both quite hard to find. Which versions of PHP does it support? Which versions of Mysql does Joomla support (trouble now with Mysq 5)? Is IIS supported? For me, it would be useful to redirect people to that page when necessary. Thanks for all documentation so far, with a lot still in the pipeline.

Hi there,

There is this page http://help.joomla.org/content/view/34/132/. Hopefully the information is sufficient. We will need to see about making it easier to find.

That would be great. I notice on the forums that there still are a few problems with Mysql 5.0, might be handy to recommend Mysql 4.1.x for the moment. Another thing that is not mentioned is SAFE_MODE=ON. At the moment there is no equivalent to the Mambo hack (though I read this is going to be taken care of in a future version). It might be user friendly to say that SAFE_MODE=OFF is preferred.

The only recent problem that I have seen with mysql5 was on windows, and I was never really clear about how that  was resolved, (whether it was a php issue, or a mysql issue, or environment issues in the server setup.)

I would note the following:
  • MySQL5 should work in most common configurations
  • MySQL5 support has been tested less extensively than MySQL4, due to MySQL5 not being widely deployed.
  • Joomla community members actively work to resolve MySQL5 issues.
  • The developers are not focused on MySQL5 compatibility, but they accept  patches mysql5 issues.
