ViMP System Requirements

  • You need a dedicated or virtual server with root permissions to install ViMP.
  • We recommend Linux as OS. An installation under UNIX, BSD or Windows is possible, but not officially supported.
  • We recommend to not use Plesk due to possible incompatibilities.

The following server software is required to run ViMP

  • Version 2.4 recommended
  • mod_rewrite must be enabled
  • Version 5.5 - 7.2
  • GD library, openssl, cURL, MySQL, mbstring, time, MySQLi, PDO, pdo_mysql, npm and XSL extensions must be installed
  • PHP CLI (Command Line Interface) must be installed
  • MySQL: Version 5.0 - 5.7
  • MariaDB: At least version 10.0
  • InnoDB must be installed
The transcoding tools should be installed exactly as described in the documentation. Due to patent protections it's not sufficient to install the default packages.
  • FFmpeg
  • additional codecs


Our minimum recommendation is as follows:
  • Quad Core Processor or better
  • 8 GB RAM (better 16 GB or more)
  • 500 GB hard disc space (the actual capacity needed depends on the number of media)
For additional data security, we recommend using a RAID controller.
