  • A webserver such as Apache, Nginx, IIS, LiteSpeed, etc.
  • PHP version 7.2.5 or greater (the previous major vrsion of Matomo will run on PHP version 5.5.9 through to PHP 7x).
  • MySQL version 5.5 or greater or MariaDB
  • PHP extension pdo and pdo_mysql or the mysqli extension.
  • A mySQL/MariaDB database.
