Configure your hosted system

Hosted installation

Before you can install the Magento software, you must get your hosted system ready.

If your hosted system is already set up, go to Get the Magento software packages.

Verify the software on your system

Magento requires the following software to run:

  • Web server: Apache 2.2 or 2.4
  • Programming language: PHP 5.6.x or 5.5.x
  • Database: MySQL 5.6.x

We recommend you contact your shared hosting provider’s technical support to verify all of the preceding are installed and get their assistance if any of the software is not installed.

For complete details, see System requirements.
