PHP version 5.6 or newer is recommended.
It should work on 5.3.7 as well, but we strongly advise you NOT to run such old versions of PHP, because of potential security and performance issues, as well as missing features.
A database is required for most web application programming. Currently supported databases are:
- MySQL (5.1+) via the mysqli drivers
Since the framework requires the working connection to a MySQL database, it wont work unless you setup the database connection.
