PalTuition LMS is primarily developed in Linux using Apache, PostgreSQL / MySQL / MariaDB and PHP (sometimes known as the LAMP platform). Typically this is also how PalTuition LMS is run.

The basic requirements for PalTuition LMS are as follows:


  • Disk space: 200MB for the PalTuition LMS code, plus as much as you need to store content. 5GB is probably a realistic minimum.
  • Processor: 1GHz (min), 2GHz dual core or more recommended.
  • Memory: 512MB (min), 1GB or more is recommended.

All the above requirements will vary depending on specific hardware and software combinations as well as the type of use and load; busy sites may well require additional resources.


These are just the minimum supported versions. We recommend keeping all of your software up-to-date.
