Loaded Commerce 6.5 is designed to run on a LAMP server. This is an acronym which means the server is set up with the Linux Operating system (L), the Apache web server (A), a MYSQL database, (M) and it can run PHP code. (P) The following versions of these components will be required for the proper running of Loaded Commerce:
The Linux Operating System
The Apache Web Server version 1.3 or greater, with mod_ssl.
MySQL database version 5.0.12 or greater.
PHP 5.2.2 or greater
PHP is only supported when compiled as an Apache module. PHP compiled in CGI/Fast CGI is not supported.
suPHP will work in the server environment the same as PHP enabled.
PHP when compiled with Suhosin/Hardened PHP is not supported.
PHP 5.3 not officially supported (version 6.5.2 is php5.3 compatible)
mySQL 5.1 not officially supported – although there are no known issues at this time
Secure Sockets Layer (SSL) Certificate.
NOTE. If you want to follow the RapidPCITM process, you must also have an SSL Certificate installed by your host. You will need to enable this during the install process.
These components must be compiled in:

Do we support any other types of servers?
