where can I find joomla computer specs
« on: June 04, 2010, 06:12:26 PM »
I am trying to figure out whether to run Joomla on XP Pro or Windows Server 2003 but cannot find any specs on the joomla site or via google to tell me how much horsepower of a machine I would need.

does anyone have any ideas?

with every content management system, the question of what specs you need to run it always comes down to how much traffic you will have.
different content management systems will be more or less efficient, and may require different back-end processes to run.. so if you have a low end machine you might look for a more efficient, less-resource-intensive CMS, but you aren't going to find a simple answer, since the key factor is going to be how much traffic you have hitting your website.

no one in their right mind hosts a public website with a desktop windows OS.
if you can't afford to rent a server, then find a freely hosted service.
