System Requirements

IXXO Cart was developed using the most powerful and extensively used scripting tools on the internet (PHP and mySQL). PHP is a server-side scripting language for creating dynamic Web pages and is most often compared to ASP, Java or Perl. But unlike these other languages, PHP has an advantage in that it is truly an open source language that can be used on multiple server environments. PHP is considered to be faster, easier to understand, and easier to customize.


  • PHP 5.5x or higher
  • MySQL 3.2 and above
  • Apache Web Server (http, https)
  • 50 MB of free disk space (Multi-Vendor Edition requires minimum 150MB)
  • GD Library Support (version 2 recommended)
  • cURL Library Support
  • ZLib Support
  • Ioncube Loaders v5.2 or higher

Depending on which distribution is used, a fresh installation can require up to 150 MB of disk space. The database space used by IXXO Cart depends on the number of products, customers, vendors and orders stored in it. Accordingly, database space requirements may vary from as little as 1 megabyte for small shops to over 100000 megabytes for large stores.
