Hi Aris,

Please can you supply me with the software requirements – Windows/Linux/MSSQL/MySQL etc? In fact can you ask the technical team to provide a full spec required to host your software.

Kind regards,

Hello Olga,

Here is what I believe that you need:


  • Hardware: There are no limits on the type of hardware used to host an LMS installation. However, as your needs grow, so will the need for additional resources. A simple LMS installation requires about 50M of free disk space and 32M of free system memory. However, a minimum of 128M free memory available to PHP is recommended. Disk space should be allocated according to usage
  • Software: LMS requires an environment running the following:
    • PHP version 5.1+ (PHP 5.2+ recommended)
    • Mysql Server 4+ (Mysql 5 is strongly recommended, and mandatory for LMS Enterprise installations)
    • Web server (Apache 2+ recommended, although LMS can work with Apache 1.x, IIS, nginx or lighttpd)
    • Write access from the web server to some folders inside the LMS installation (see Preparing LMS setup on Linux Server with Apache below)

LMS may be installed either on a Windows or on a Linux environment. However, if you are going to use non-latin language settings, linux is preferred over windows due to the latter's poor support for UTF-8 filenames
