System Requirements

TYPO3 requires a web server, PHP and a database system.

  • TYPO3 requires a web server which can run PHP (e.g. Apache or IIS).

    • If you use the Apache web server, the module mod_rewrite must be activated.
  • TYPO3 7.6 requires PHP 5.5 - 7.2.

    • Certain PHP extensions are necessary, others recommended. See file as mentioned below.

    • You possibly want to adjust the memory limit; at least 128 MB is recommended:


      memory_limit = 128M
  • MySQL >= 5.5 <= 5.7 (or compatible such as Percona or MariaDB)

  • If you want TYPO3 to automatically carry out image processing – for example scaling or cropping – you will need GraphicsMagick or ImageMagick (version 6 or newer) installed on the server.

A detailed list of these requirements is enclosed in the file inside the TYPO3 source package.
