PHP cache and accelerators
SWIFT4 accesses many scripts spread across many files for each connection. We recommend that your web server has a PHP opcode cache, like xcache, apc or eaccelerator. We find that xcache is the easiest to install and most readily available.

Web Browser Requirements
The requirements for a web browser depends on what theme you are using for your site. The default theme we release has been tested to work on the latest versions of all the most common web browsers (eg. Firefox, IE8, Opera, Chrome etc...). For those that use Internet Explorer must have version 7 or higher installed in order to properly use all the features provided with v2.

How to check your hosting provider meets these requirements

  1. Ask your host. The best way to check your requirements is to simply contact your host and ask them. Simply link them back to this page so they can look over the list.
  2. You can also download our test script here. The zip package will need to upload that PHP file to your server and run it like: http://www.example.com
