System Requirements

Drupal (and therefore WissKI) needs the typical webstack as a prerequisite. The Apache HTTP webserver and a MySQL server are recommended. One of the easiest ways to get these is to get the XAMPP software. For further documentation of the prerequisites of Drupal please have a look at the Drupal installation guide.

For running the current stable WissKI D6 system we recommend the following software:

  • Apache 2.X
  • Mod Rewrite (for clean URL support)
  • MySQL 5.1.X (we experienced some problems with MySQL 5.5 - please stay tuned for updates if you are using MySQL 5.5 or we rather recommend to install WissKI D7)
  • PHP Version 5.2/5.3.X
  • Drupal 6.X



For running our new currently actively developed WissKI D7 system we recommend the following software:

  • Apache 2.X
  • Mod Rewrite (for clean URL support)
  • MySQL 5.5.X
  • PHP Version 5.3.X
  • Drupal 7.X
