Necessary environment to install the WooCommerce CMS

  • PHP 7.4 and newer;
  • MySQL 5.7, MariaDB 10.2 and newer;
  • We recommend installing an SSL certificate to display your site in HTTPS (at a minimum : Let's Encrypt - free);
  • Any type of LAMP server can do the job (Aqua One, Aqua Pro, VPS, dedicated server).

We recommend, for a professional project, to install your site on a VPS (at least: 1 vCPU - 2 GB RAM - 50 GB storage). This gives you greater freedom to configure the underlying services that are fixed on a shared hosting.

If you expect a high volume of traffic with a site having several thousand pages, think about contacting our sales or technical team to study your project. A tailor-made quote will then be necessary.
