Fresh install Xenforo

#1
Hi everyone,

I just want to ask a few questions before purchasing a xenforo license. Specifically system requirements for the installation. What is the minimum system requirement to have xenforo without being compromised? Next would be plugins. Can someone provide me with the basic plugins needed to start up a forum using xenforo.

Thanks ahead!

Upload the file in that zip to your server and visit the page. That will tell you if your server meets system minimums.

XenForo System Requirements
  • PHP: 5.2.11+
  • MySQL: 5.0+
  • PHP extensions: MySQLi, GD (with JPEG support), PCRE, SPL, SimpleXML, DOM, JSON, iconv, ctype
  • PHP safe_mode off

Without knowing what your site is about and how you intend to run it you will be hard put to find a direct answer on that. That said if you don't know what you need as far as addons go chances are you really don't "need" any though if you browse the resource manager you will more than likely find something you can use to your benefit.

Thanks for the quick response to my query. Yes for now I am trying to figure out what would be the main content or topic of the forum, so I guess i'll meet some addons along the way.
