The requirements for installing Meza are as follows.

  1. System Requirements:
    1. 8GB RAM minimum suggested. For trying out Meza with 2GB RAM or even less, see Meza/Setup on a low-memory system
    2. 25GB minimum available free space in /opt (Linux). Meza will initially use <2GB but logs and media can easily require much more over time.
  2. Operating system:
    1. Rocky Linux 8.9 (RHEL 8 equivalent)
    2. Mac, Windows, or Linux using the Vagrant or Virtual Box install instructions
  3. Minimal install: Attempting to install it on a Linux server with many other packages already installed may not work properly due to conflicts
  4. Mail: meza does not configure any mail services. The best option is to use the $wgSMTP mediawiki variable to attach to an external SMTP service.
