Before installing

Minimum Requirements

  • MySQL 5
  • PHP 5 (recommended 5.2)
  • A graphic library like GD or IM is recommended: GD is often bundled with PHP 5 and IM can be installed on your server. Ask your hosting company.
  • FTP client software will be required to upload the files (netinstall or full package) : Piwigo team recommends FileZilla as FTP client software, because it is free as Piwigo is, and compatible with both Windows and Linux.
    Piwigo is also included in Softaculous or other auto-installer system, if available on your hosting : that way you don't need any FTP client software, but you might need one later.
  • Enough disk space for your pictures : by default, multiple sizes of your pictures will be generated.

''.htaccess'' file

On some hosts, multiple PHP versions are enabled and you need an .htaccess file with a specific instruction in order to enable PHP 5. Contact your hosting company to know exactly their procedure. The Netinstall itself produces such an .htaccess file on some hosting.
