WordPress PHP Requirements

WordPress supports and runs on many versions of the PHP programming language. Yet, for the best performance, we recommend running PHP version 8.0 or higher.

That includes:

  • PHP Version 8.0
  • PHP Version 8.1
  • PHP Version 8.2
  • PHP Version 8.3

WordPress Server Requirements

Server requirements involve several elements: RAM, database version, processing power, disk space, and the web server used.

Here’s a quick look into the standard recommendations for a server when running WordPress:

  • Web server: Nginx or Apache with mod-rewrite module
  • Disk space: At least 1 GB
  • PHP: Version 8.0 or higher
  • Database: MySQL 5.015 or higher (An alternative is MariaDB, version 10.1 or higher)
  • RAM (Random Access Memory): At least 512 MB We Suggest at last 1 G Ram
  • CPU (Central Processing Unit): At least 1.0 GHz
  • Support for HTTPS

Now let’s take a deeper look into the reasoning behind these hardware and web server recommendations.
