docusuit_ is a web application defined to work on the Internet or in LANs (Local Area Networks). Like any other web application to install docusuit_ needs to be installed on a web server. There are no restrictions on the web server as long as it may run PHP 5. Nevertheless, we recommend Apache 2 because has been the platform more thoroughly tested. As commented before docusuit_ requires PHP 5 with a series of modules activated. These modules usually come activated by default but just in case we enumerate them below:
Although not strictly necessary we also recommend the activation of:

docusuit_ uses MySQL databases to store all the metadata associated with templates as well as user information and roles.

The default installation requires MySQL 5 or higher and the “mysqli” extension of PHP 5.
