Server Requirements

The first step in setting up your WooCommerce-powered online store is to install WordPress and the WooCommerce plugin. But before doing so, you should check your hosting environment. If they don’t meet these requirements, the security and performance of your site will suffer. As a guide, we recommend:

  1. WordPress version 6.3 or great.
  2. PHP version 7.4 or greater.
  3. MySQL version 5.67 or greater OR MariaDB version 10.4 or greater.
  4. WordPress memory limit of 256 MB or greater.
  5. HTTPS support.
