User Guide: System Requirements: Genealone

User Guide Contents

Genealone is a web-based software running on your web server (e.g. webhosting). Usually, you don’t need to worry because Genealone is system independent and practically all web hostings meet the requirements “off the shelf”. Required software on the server side is:

1) Any web server (e.g. Apache)
2) PHP
3) MySQL

We don’t test Genealone with very old versions of MySQL and PHP. However, we never use fancy, new functions and Genealone should work with any web hosting and any server installation less than 4 years old.

Also, you can install Genealone directly on your home computer. In that case you need to install and run all the software above including essential modules and extensions (e.g. mod_php and php_mysql) on your computer by yourself.
