What will XenForo require to run?

PHP 5.2, MySQL 5

I suspect that MySQL 4.1 would also work, but we haven't tested that yet.

The system is also optimised to take advantage of a PHP optimizer such as APC, Zend Optimizer etc. I strongly recommend that you have one of these installed.

Excellent to get those assumptions confirmed; It's refreshing to not run into strange surprises ..

Are these absolutely neccessary? (for users who are on shared hosting, may be a problem)

Great to see you'll be building on PHP 5 :) I'm curious if you've tested the software on PHP 5.3? Normally code developed on 5.2 wouldn't be a problem w/5.3, but hey, good to check IMHO ;)

Wincache is not just a op-code caching system, it can be deployed as a datastore as well. Though, it's op-code caching facility has better performances than others on Windows, on my systems.

Don't forget Xcache! :) We use this over APC and Zend because it seems to be the better option.. Well, that is an argument for another day though. :)
