Server Requirements

Note that ShulNET needs to be installed directly on your web server. It will not work with Wix or Squarespace.
ShulNET is not compatible with MySQL servers running in STRICT mode. You will need to be able to run your MySQL server in a traditional mode for ShulNET to work. If you are unsure whether this is possible, please contact your web host or system administrator to confirm.

These are requirements for your web server. You can confirm these with your web hosting provider or system administrator.

  • FTP or SSH access to your server
  • PHP 5.3+
    • Required Libraries and Extensions
      • PDO_MySQL
      • php curl
      • OpenSSL
    • Magic Quotes need to be disabled
    • GD library strongly recommended
  • MySQL 5+ / Maria (beta only)
  • Will run on Windows host, though cron jobs may be problematic.

Recommended Configuration

  • Linux-based hosting
    • Apache or NGINX
    • Cron job availability
    • Memory limit set above 128MB
  • Deployable via Kubernetes / Docker on Azure / AWS.

Local Requirements

These are requirements for your local computer, or any computer that will be using ShulNET. Local machines can run any operating system so long as they have a recent generation browser with cookies enabled.

We recommend a minimum screen resolution of 1024×768. Larger resolutions provide a bigger work space.

The front-end, i.e. member accessible area is mobile friendly and responsive, ShulNET’s administrative dashboard is not currently designed to be used with mobile devices.
