Siberian server requirements

Here are the software and hardware requirements to run Siberian properly:

Software requirements:

  • Supported OS: Linux (Centos 6 or newer, Debian 6 or newer, Ubuntu 10.04 or newer, Fedora 20 or newer).
  • Supported server: Apache 2 or newer
  • PHP 5.6+
  • MySQL 5.5 or newer
  • PHP extensions: GD, PDO MySQL, Simplexml, Curl, DOM, iconv, mbstring, mod_rewrite.
  • PHP functions: exec() , allow url_fopen
  • Zip
  • Unzip
  • OpenSSL 1.0.1 minimum
  • php-sqlite3 or glibc >= 2.12
  • Recommended: Try to get a control panel with your server, like cPanel or Parallel Plesk panel. Install the panel before to install Siberian.
  • For apk generator :
    • – Install those 32bits libraries if they are not already installed :
      –> Debian/Ubuntu:
      apt-get install lib32stdc++6
      apt-get install lib32z1 lib32z1-dev
      –> CentOS/Fedora:
      yum -y install libstdc++.i686 && yum -y install zlib.i686
    • Java 1.8+

Hardware requirements:

Single-App Edition (SAE):

  • A shared server with a CPU from 1vCore.
    (Please note there is an issue with Hostgator shared servers: there is a timeout setting which is made by default by Hostgator and that cannot be changed on a shared server. So Siberian is not compatible with these Hostgator shared servers.)

Multi-Apps Edition (MAE):

  • Type of server: Virtual Private Server (VPS) or Dedicated Server (no Shared servers)
  • SSH Root access for technical support
  • CPU: From 1vCore
  • RAM memory: From 2GB
  • Disk space: From 20GB
  • Bandwidth: From 100Mbs or from 1TB of bandwidth per month.

Platform Edition (PE):

  • Type of server: Virtual Private Server (VPS) or Dedicated Server (no Shared servers).
  • SSH Root access for technical support
  • CPU: From 2vCore
  • RAM memory: From 4GB
  • Disk space: From 20GB
  • Bandwidth: From 100Mbs or from 1TB of bandwidth per month.

Recommended VPS for MAE and PE:

We recommend usually the VPS provided by OVH (SSD 2 at least) or Contabo (VPS M at least) because they represent the best quality-price ratio:

  • http://www.ovh.ie/vps/vps-ssd.xml (Choose “Plesk” for the distribution, “Parallel Plesk 12 on CentOS 6” for the version, and a “Plesk Webadmin 12” license)
  • https://contabo.com/?show=vps (Choose CentOS7 for the operating system and “Plesk Onyx Web Admin Edition” for the admin panel)

This way your server will be completely setup and ready to host your Siberian edition.

 

NOTE FOR WHM/CPANEL  USERS : 

To avoid some issues and complex configurations and settings , please create an account specific for Siberian , do not install Siberian in a sub-domain of an existing account .
