In order to remain lightweight, Anchor only supports recent versions of the languages it’s written in. As such, you will need:

  • PHP 5.6+
    • curl
    • mcrypt
    • gd
    • php-mbstring
    • pdo_mysql or pdo_sqlite
  • MySQL 5.6+

If you’re not sure what version of PHP you have, create a new file, and paste the following in at the top of the page:

<?php echo PHP_VERSION; // version.php

This should print a number to your screen, which should be bigger than 5.6.0.

If you don’t have the necessary requirements, you will not be able to install Anchor. Contact your host to upgrade.
