Requirements

The requirements for Snipe-IT are fairly standard for a modern web server, and most servers will have most or all of these components already installed. If for some reason you don't have them installed, they are relatively easy to add.

📘

NOTE ON SHARED HOSTING:

If you're installing Snipe-IT on shared hosting, you should have most of these installed already, with the exception of LDAP. LDAP integration may not be possible on shared hosting, depending on your web host. Email your hosting provider's support team to determine if your server meets the requirements to install Snipe-IT.
