This document contains information for an outdated version (2.4) and may not be maintained any more. If some of your projects still use this version, consider upgrading as soon as possible.
SilverStripe is a web application. This means that you will need to have a webserver and database meeting its requirements. We will take you through the setup of the server environment as well the application itself.
If you already have an installed version of SilverStripe, please see our upgrading guide.
- Install using Apache - our preferred platform
- Install using Lighttpd - fast, but a bit tricker to get going
- Install using Nginx - Super fast at serving static files. Great for large traffic sites.
Mac OS X
Mac OS X comes with a built-in webserver, but you can also use MAMP install using MAMP or using MacPorts.
