In order to work properly with all site components, extensions and features, your website needs to be hosted on a Joomla!® friendly hosting server.

Even though Joomla!® websites can be hosted with many hosting companies, not all servers are set up for Joomla!® sites to operate properly and securely. A hosting service is one of the most serious decisions you have to make before publishing your website on the Internet.

Joomla!® is built predominately for Linux hosting servers so the following requirements refer to that specific hosting solution. In order to keep your Joomla!® site operating properly and securely the server should have up-to-date versions of the following:
  • PHP
  • MySQL
  • Apache
  • Apache mod_mysql extension
  • Apache mod_xml extension
  • Apache mod_zlib extension
  • Apache mod_rewrite extension, for running sef & seo urls
  • .htaccess support for overriding default apache server settings & enabling search engine friendly urls
  • Web Hosting Control Panel (like 'cPanel') so your hosting account & its settings can be easily managed
  • phpMyAdmin installed so that you can view, edit & update your joomla MySQL database more easily
