System Requirements

Omeka Classic has the following system requirements:

  • Linux operating system
  • Apache HTTP server (with mod_rewrite enabled)
  • MySQL version 5.0 or greater
  • PHP scripting language version 5.6 or higher (with mysqli and exif extensions installed)
  • ImageMagick image manipulation software (for resizing images).

Upgrading Your System

If you need to upgrade your server to meet any of the Omeka system requirements, consult these resources:

Some plugins may have other requirements, such as the PDF Text plugin, which requires your server to have poppler-utils installed for text extraction. Be sure to read the documentation on your desired plugins and features to understand all dependencies before you begin building your site, including the Github pages or other external sites, not just the Omeka user manual and plugins page.
