Questions and Answers

Which system requirements does open enventory have?

Almost any office computer is suitable as client, using either Internet Explorer 7+ (Windows XP, Vista) or Firefox 3.5 (Windows, Linux, Mac). A screen resolution of 1024x768 pixel is the absolute minimum required, but we would recommend 1280x1024, which is offered by most 19" TFTs for a good working experience. Computers starting from 500 MHz (e.g. tablet PCs) with lower resolution (800x600) are sufficient as barcode terminal.

An Apache web server running PHP5 and a MySQL database acts as server, either Windows- (e.g. on Xampp) or Linux-based. A fast CPU with possibly multiple cores is required for quick substructure searches. See more in the technology section
