Adding to a site

  • Looking into forum software. The company I work for is a small business and they decided to use Wix for there sites which is a extremely simplistic site.

    Perhaps I have missed it but I haven't found much information about the process of adding the forums to a site and thus have no idea of it will work with there site.

    So really I am asking what the requirements of the software is and if there was a easy way to test compatibility with there web hosting choice.

    Installing and running our software requires a server or webspace with PHP support and a MySQL database.

    The PHP safe-mode must be disabled and the memory_limit must be at least 128 MB.

    The software uses about 20 MB disk space once installed. The disk and database usage raises with user activity, e.g. writing messages or uploading files.
