TWiki System Requirements
Server and client system requirements for TWiki 01-Dec-2001
Maintaining minimum client and server requirements is necessary to keep TWiki deployment as broad as possible.
TWiki is written in Perl 5, uses a number of shell commands, and requires RCS (Revision Control System)
, a GNU Free Software package. TWiki is developed in a basic Linux/Apache environment. It also works with Microsoft Windows, and should have no problem on any other platform that meets the requirements:
| Required Server Environment
|| 5.005_03 or higher
| Non standard Perl modules
|| 5.7 or higher
| Other external programs
ls, fgrep, egrep
| Web server
|| Apache; others (with support for CGI, authentication, extended path) *
Current documentation covers Linux only. A TWikiOnWindows
installation guide is next.
The TWiki standard installation
has extremely low browser requirements:
- HTML 3.2 compliant
- generates XHTML 1.0 pages that are compatible with HTML 3.2
- no cookies
- no CSS
You can easily add capabilities, through customizing the templates, for one, while tailoring the browser requirements to your situation.
- The new TWikiPlugins feature currently does not have compatibility guidelines for developers. Plugins can require just about anything: browser-specific functions, stylesheets (CSS), DHTML, Java applets, cookies.
