System requirements (PHP, SQL, etc.)

Server configuration

  • PHP VERSION: The required version is 5.4.0 or higher.
  • Component: GD – Graphics directory. Usually it is enabled on every web-server, but if not, feel free to ask your hosting provider. They will enable it for you.
  • Component: CURL. It needed to add the license key, import sample sliders and update. You'll also need it when you are using social generators.
  • Memory limit: 64M. The amount of memory our slider needs is up to the number of slides, and the number and types of the animations. So if you create a small slider, that can work with lower memory limit, too, but if you create a really big slider, that might need more. If your php info says that you have a lower memory limit, contact your server host and ask them to change it to 64M or 128M.
  • Server security: Our back-end uses base64 encoding in the back-end to be able to post any kind of variables. If your server has a base64 security filtering, ask them to turn it off.
  • SimpleXML extension

SQL type

  • MYSQL: The required version is 4.0 or higher.

Joomla Versions

  • Joomla 3.7 or higher

  • jQuery 1.8.0 or higher jQuery 1.x.x
