Things to know and prepare before the installation

  • OpenSSL PHP Extension
  • PDO PHP Extension
  • Mbstring PHP Extension
  • Tokenizer PHP Extension
  • XML PHP Extension
  • Ctype PHP Extension
  • JSON PHP Extension
  • ZIP PHP Extension

MySQL Version

QwikTest requires a MySQL database with support for JSON columns. MySQL 5.7.24 is recommended. Currently, we only tested MySQL and MariaDB. PostgreSQL is not yet tested.

Hosting Services

QwikTest requires Linux-based shared hosting with CPanel or Cloud VPS. While QwikTest works just fine on shared hosting, there might be limitations; thus, we suggest using a VPS for better performance.
QwikTest works on all major managed hosting providers (GoDaddy, NameCheap, BlueHost, SiteGround, HostGator, etc.) and Cloud Providers (AWS, GCP, Azure, DigitalOcean, etc.)

Our Demo is powered by Digital Ocean VPS.

Application Server

QwikTest works on both Apache and NGINX. QwikTest is not compatible with the Hostinger LiteSpeed web server.

SMTP Mail Configuration

The application MUST HAVE a working SMTP configuration for user registration and password resets. Without it, you will get an error 500 on registration.
