Technology

Software requirements

elcomCMS is built on the Microsoft stack, including Server operating system, .NET Framework and SQL Server. The specific Microsoft licensing requirements will depend on your specific scenario.

Elcom recommends having three Microsoft Windows based servers. We also strongly recommend running Windows 2008 R2 or above on all three servers.

  • Web server
  • Database Server
  • Application Server

This is recommended to help ensure security, flexibility and growth of your deployment (ie, webserver on the DMZ and the database on the TRUST networks). It is possible to combine all the servers if required.

Client requirements

  • Web browser (Internet Explorer 7+, Firefox 2+, Safari, Chrome, Opera)
  • (No other software is required) 
The following provides more details: 

Microsoft 2008/2012 Server

elcomCMS requires Internet Information Server IIS7.0 or higher, and will operate on Windows 2008 Servers and above.
The highest performance is achieved when running on Windows 2012 Server, using IIS7 (Internet Information Server). 

elcomCMS requires Anonymous email relaying to be allowed on your server in order for the web site to send email.  

Microsoft SQL Server 2005/2008/2012

elcomCMS fully supports Microsoft SQL Server 2005 and above.
