We recommend a virtual server installation for new and migrated Powercode billing servers. A virtual server’s ability to take a snapshot image of the server contents is a great source of peace of mind before making major changes to your system going forward.
Whether you are using a virtual or a physical server, these are the recommended minimum specifications:
This information is up to date as of 3-14-2018.
- 16 GB RAM
- 300 GB hard drive
- 6 CPU cores
- Preferably an SSD
We do not recommend using a remotely hosted VPS as the providers often disable needed packages or make kernel modifications that impede the functionality of Powercode. If you wish to use a remote server, we recommend a dedicated or cloud compute instance from a hosting provider such as Vultr.
