phplist is developed and tested with the following server software:
- Apache web server
- PHP version 4.3.x or higher (IMAP module required for bounce processing)
- MySQL database server version 4.0 or higher
The developers use the following setup:
XAMPP server to run phplist on windows for testing and development.
MacOSX, with Apache, PHP and MySQL. MacOSX has Apache built-in which works fine but the PHP installation is not sufficient. We recomend the XAMPP(intel) or MAMP(PPC) mac-ready installations to run phplist on macs.
phplist IIS or by searching the forums. It is likely that phplist runs with older versions of PHP, but it is not recommended.
IMAP support to your PHP installation. In order to allow phplist to automatically process your bounces, this is a requirement.
ADOdb which should make it more likely to run on other database than MySQL, but this has not been tested by the developers, and we have not received many reports about it yet.
safe mode" in PHP off. We have done all we could to make it work in safe mode, but once you get to systems with more than 500 users, it is likely to cause problems. Also, in safe mode, the automatic bounce processing of phplist will NOT WORK.
