System Requirements

  • PHP 5.3 or 5.4 / MySQL 5.1x are the recommended versions.
  • Ability to run cron jobs every 5 minutes.
  • GD Library for the dynamic creation of image uploads.
  • Supports mod rewrites and editing of .htaccess files.
  • PHP mail() support.

Using PHP 5.5 and up may cause warning or error issues.

Try to find a host that will allow you to choose/select the PHP version
you want to use, many hosts now provide this option in cPanel.

Important Note:
Also 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
