System Requirements

  • PHP 5.x - preferably run as an Apache module instead of in CGI/FastCGI
  • MySQL 5.x
  • Ability to run cron jobs every 5 minutes
  • GD Library for the dynamic creation of images
  • FreeType support enabled for captcha
  • Supports uploading and editing of .htaccess files
  • PHP mail() support

Important Note:
Make sure that your host allows crons to be run every 5 minutes,
some shared hosting plans do not allow crons to be run under 15 minutes.
GoDaddy and HostGator are a couple of examples that only allow cron jobs
under 15 minutes on their VPS and Dedicated server plans.

Detailed instructions on setting up the cron job in cPanel are provided in the Etano Online Documentation & User Manual
