The required environment to install Magento

  • Apache, Nginx, Hiawatha, Microsoft IIS ou other serveur web with a PHP support;
  • PHP 7.4 or newer versions;
  • MySQL 5.7 (or equivalent) and newer versions;
  • We recommend you to install an SSL certificate in order to display your website in HTTPS (at the minimum: Let’s Encrypt – free);
  • Any type of LAMP server can fit the purpose (Aqua One, Aqua Pro, VPS, dedicated server).

Concerning a professional-use project, we recommend you to install your website on a VPS (1 vCPU – 2 Go de RAM – 50 Go storage at the minimum). This provides you a greater flexibility to configure the underlying services that are based on a shared hosting.
