The requirements for installing Meza are as follows.
- System Requirements:
- 4GB RAM minimum suggested. For trying out Meza with 2GB RAM or even less, see Meza/Setup on a low-memory system
- 2.5GB minimum available free space in /opt (Linux)
- Operating system:
- Minimal install: Attempting to install it on a Linux server with many other packages already installed may not work properly due to conflicts
- Mail: meza does not configure any mail services. A mail service such as postfix needs to be configured separately from meza in order for the meza deployed wikis to send mail from the system. If a service like postfix can not be configured at the system level, basic outbound SMTP can be configured within Meza via the $wgSMTP mediawiki variable provided in a file such as
/opt/config-meza/public/postLocalSettings.d/smtp.phphowever while using using $wgSMTP may be adequate for basic mediawiki email notification, it may not work with extensions that require a system level mail service.
