System Requirements

Server (System)

  • A PHP-Cache (e.g. APC / PHP-Accelerator / OPcache / Zend Accelerator, UNIX/Linux only)

Further individual extensions may require additional software.

Client (User)

  • Required: Any graphical browser on any OS
  • Recommended: Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Internet Explorer 9+

Note: Memory Consumption

Currently there are parts in TYPO3 CMS requiring more than the usual memory configured in the php.ini files of default installations. Usually, that memorylimit is ignored unless support for it has been compiled into PHP (or if you are running PHP as CGI) and doesn't cause any problems. Nevertheless, we recommend you configure for at least 128 MB memory, although 256 MB or more is always better!
