Hosting Requirements

Go to solution Solved by Marc Stridgen,

I've been looking all over this website for hosting requirements for self-hosting for 4.7.9. Anyone know where I can find the list of requirements? All I see is to download some sort of technical coding for compatibility that I really don't understand. Any recommended hosts that offer installation and everything besides IPB Cloud?

Yeah. That's the thing I don't understand. I'm hunting for website hosting and I don't want to have to buy it first then find out it's not going to work. 

Actually they are on the bottom of the purchase page before you purchase it. The software requires secure versions of PHP (currently PHP 8), with GD, mbstring, and all default PHP extentions, along with mySQL.

Could contain: File, Webpage, Page, Text, Advertisement, Poster
