Requirements

  • Zikula Core requires PHP >= 7.2.5 (same as Symfony 5).
  • Additional server considerations can be found on the Symfony site.
  • Zikula requires more memory than typical to install. You should set your memory limit in php.ini to 128 MB for the installation process.
  • Zikula requires that date.timezone be set in the php.ini configuration file (or .htaccess).
  • Zikula requires AllowOverride All and the mod_rewrite module (be aware the Apache 2.3.9+ has changed the default setting for AllowOverride to None).
  • Zikula also requires other PHP extensions and configurations. These are checked during the installation process and if there are problems, you will be notified. If you discover errors, check with your hosting provider on how to rectify these issues. Typically, they will require changing the php.ini file or possibly reconfiguring the PHP installation by your provider.
