System requirements#

In order to guarantee the operation of all functionalities of i-doit, some requirements must be met by the underlying system.

Current version

The requirements shown below apply to the current version of i-doit, in this case 27. These requirements are adjusted for each major release of i-doit. If the requirements of older versions are needed, the change history of this page can be used.

Minimum Requirements#

The following system parameters are the minimum requirements to guarantee i-doit to work with up to around 10,000 objects and up to 10 users working simultaneously.

Virtual Hardware#

  • 2 vCPUs
  • 2 GB RAM
  • 10 GB free disc space

We recommend the use of a dedicated virtual machine. The actual demand for hardware is based on the scope of the IT documentation and the amount of simultaneous users.

LAMP / WAMP Stack#

  • GNU/Linux in the 64bit variant (amd64) or Windows Server 2022 in the 64bit variant (amd64)
  • Apache Webserver 2.4
  • MariaDB 10.2, 10.3, 10.4, 10.5, 10.6 (recommended) or MySQL 5.7 or 8.0.
  • PHP 7.4 (deprecated), 8.0 (recommended), 8.1. At the moment, PHP version >= 8.2 is not supported. We plan the support of PHP 8.2 in a later release.
  • PHP extensions: bcmath, ctype, curl, fileinfo, gd, imagick, json, ldap, mbstring, memcached, mysqli, mysqlnd, pgsql, session, soap, xml, zip

We recommend the usage of Apache Webserver 2.4, PHP 8.0 and MariaDB 10.6.

Success

The following system parameters comprise a configuration reference that is tested and recommended by us and guarantees high performance when used with up to 500,000 objects and a high number of simultaneously working users.

Virtual Hardware#

  • 2 vCPUs
  • 8 GB RAM
  • 50 GB free disc space

Operating System#

We recommend an operating system based on GNU/Linux

LAMP Stack#

  • Apache 2.4.x (default package)
  • MariaDB 10.6.x (default package)
  • PHP 8.0.x (default package)

Note

Because i-doit is a database application, it intensively uses the hard drive. Since the I/O throughput strongly determines the performance, a fast hard drive is recommended.
The need for disc space can increase with intense usage of file or image storage in i-doit.
The value of 50 GB is solely geared to the maximal size of the database, which can be achieved by full usage, updates and similar operations.

Client#

A Web browser is needed on the client side in order to access the Web GUI of i-doit. For each Web browser the current version as well as the version prior to this are supported:

  • Mozilla Firefox (including the last ESR version)
  • Google Chrome/Chromium
  • Microsoft Edge (disabled compatibility mode)
  • Apple Safari
