# System Requirements
- 1GB RAM
- 1 CPU
Kindly note that systems like Chevereto depends entirely on the use case so this is just a base reference. If your system gets bigger you need to consider upgrading your machines and tweak swap space, cache strategies, etc.
A cron (opens new window) is required to process the application background jobs. A cron is system in which a command is executed in a regular basis, this way Chevereto can perform operations in the background.
The command should be run by the webserver user, this is usually the
www-data user. To run the command in Chevereto it requires to call PHP binary at the Chevereto CLI.
which php to locate the PHP binary as its location may vary in different systems and configurations.
Command below uses
sudo -u www-data to run the command as
www-data user permissions. PHP binary is at
php and the Chevereto CLI is at
/var/www/html/cli.php. The actual command passed to Chevereto is just
# Docker command
# Cron.d file
With a cron.d file (opens new window) the cron can be easily setup. To do this create a cron file at
/etc/cron.d/chevereto with the following contents:
* * * * * www-data php /var/www/html/cli.php -C cron
Note: In debian-based systems the cron file must have a newline eof
In the instruction above * * * * * (opens new window) is the cron schedule to run every minute and
www-data is the webserver user. The rest of the instruction is just the command.
Suit your context
The above default cron works when running our official deploy provisioning. If you don't use our server provisioning you will be likely required to alter the default instructions for user, PHP binary and Chevereto CLI location. Refer to your system documentation.
# Server requirements
If you don't run containers you need to review the Server Requirements.
# Image library
Refer to Image library server requirements.
