Awebdesk Helpdesk’s base requirements allow it to run on most servers that run PHP software:
Awebdesk Helpdesk is also not compatible with Elastic >= 6. You are advised to use Elastichsearch version 5.x. All our provided installers will include this version.
Access to the command line version of PHP (often called php or php-cli on Linux or php-win.exe on Window (usually installed by default; may not be available with some hosting services)
Any web server that works with PHP (Apache with php5-fpm, IIS and nginx are all supported).
We do not recommend using mod_php with Apache2 on Windows - Thread Safe PHP is not reliable. Instead use NTS PHP FastCGI using mod_fcgid; or use IIS.
MySQL version 5.0 or newer (latest version recommended)
