System Requirements, Support, and Maintenance
TYPO3 version 13.0 has new minimum system requirements. This move paves the way for enhancements planned for the upcoming sprint releases and allows us to use up-to-date dependent packages with long-term support.
TYPO3 requires PHP version 8.2, which will receive security updates for the next two years until December 2025. This PHP version is also required for Symfony version 7, which is another component of TYPO3 v13. Symfony v7 will be supported until November 2028.
We also plan to update Doctrine, the database abstraction layer (DBAL) used in TYPO3. At the time of writing, the first release candidate of Doctrine DBAL v4 is out, and we expect a final release of the library in the next few months. Developers can read more about the breaking changes in Doctrine DBAL v4 in the upgrade notes.
The Doctrine v4 upgrade also impacts the system requirements regarding the supported database engines. TYPO3 v13.x supports the following database products and versions:
- MySQL version 8.0.17 or higher
- MariaDB version 10.4.3 or higher
- PostgresSQL version 10.0 or higher
- SQLite version 3.8.3 or higher
Hint: When upgrading from TYPO3 v12 LTS to TYPO3 v13.x, update the platform first, then the TYPO3 instance. TYPO3 v12 LTS supports PHP version 8.2 and the MariaDB and MySQL database engine versions also supported by TYPO3 v13.x.
We will support each TYPO3 sprint release (v13.0 to v13.3) until the next minor version is published. The long-term support version TYPO3 v13 LTS (aka version 13.4) will receive bug fixes until 30 April 2026, and we will provide security patches for TYPO3 v13 LTS until 31 October 2027.
