The current version of Kwolla Lite does not have an installation script. Future versions will. However, installation is fairly straightforward and simple. You will need a basic knowledge of how to upload files, manually set up a database, and configure cron jobs.


Kwolla works with most shared hosts and all VPS hosting providers.


Your server should have the following components:

  • PHP 5.2+
  • MySQL 4.0+
  • Apache (may work with other web servers, but it's currently untested)
  • PHP Extensions: php_ext_gd2, php_ext_mysqli, php_ext_curl, php_ext_gettext, php_ext_fileinfo

  • Ability to run cron jobs (for the search indexer).
