oc System requirements

Postby braindoc » Thu Jul 19, 2012 5:19 pm

Hello,

I wanted to know about the system requirements of owncloud. everything I could find was about the software requirements (PHP, Mysql).
But what kind of Hardware requirements need the Server? (CPU, RAM)
And, if one uses the virtual machine image of the oc Server?

Thank you, briandoc

I think that vastly depends on the number of users you want to support and the amount of data you want to provide access to over owncloud.

I have it running on a Atom machine with 2 gig RAM, and it's working decently. Not too fast, but acceptable most of the time.

thanks for sharing your experiance, Randolph.
Your're right, of course it depends on the number of users and the tasks.
I was more thinking of a minimum requirement. For example how much Ram do I need to run owncloud without problems (and I#m not talking about no concurrent users or big files).

But Atom and 2GB ram is a number. Is there anybody running owncloud on a slower system?

I guess that might be close to the minimum :shock:

The memory_limit in .htaccess is set to 512MB, so I guess less than 512MB is suboptimal. I have tried running it with 24MB memory_limit, for a short time, though, and it worked flawlessly. During that period, there was however no file scanning or other memory intensive operation running...
