Prerequisite and System Requirements

Prerequisite

You must have a running Java Virtual Machine to install and use Jahia.


Download and install a Java SE Development Kit from Oracle / Sun website > go to the Oracle website

Installation on MS Windows
  • Download the above file at the root level of your computer, or decompress it at the root level (C:\)
  • Due to Windows limitations in path depth, Jahia can't be installed in the user home directory
  • Also there shouldn't be any spaces in your folder naming 
(example: C:\digitalfactory70\ is ok while C:\digitalfactory 70\ won't work

)

Warning: 32 bits JVM are limited in max memory (1.5 GB under Windows - 2 or 3 GB under Linux/Solaris). Jahia tries to cache a maximum of data in order to boost performance. So we highly recommend 64 bits environments with enough memory available at least for all production environments.
