In order to provide you with the best and most secure software, we do have minimum requirements to run TaxoPress plugins.

PHP recommendations #

We highly recommend that any website using TaxoPress plugins also uses PHP 7.2 or higher.

WordPress officially recommends that you use PHP 7.4 as a minimum.

MySQL and Server recommendations #

  • Database: MySQL version 5.7 or greater or MariaDB version 10.2 or greater.
  • Server: We recommend Apache or Nginx as the most robust and secure servers for running WordPress, but any server that supports PHP and MySQL should work.

For the official WordPress recommendations, please check here.
