Server requirements

These requirements are provided by almost all hosting companies:

  • PHP 7.2.9 or higher

  • Database (MySQL, MariaDB, SQLite)
  • Webserver (nginx, Apache with mod_rewrite …)
  • A modern browser

Installation with SSH

The recommended way to install Kimai!

You will use git and composer for the installation, which will be executed directly on the target system. Please read the instructions carefully.

Read installation docs

Shared hosting with FTP

This way is not supported! Kimai does neither support updates in this mode nor ships a web-installer like other web-apps. There is a workaround, but you need to understand that you are on your own, only paid support possible.

Development version

A development version is the latest package we are currently working on, also referred to as the master. It will have new features and bugfixes included (see demo site), but it might not be as stable as an official release. If you are an experienced user of Kimai and have the resources to help us with testing or just like to play with brand new features, you should install the latest development version.

Please help us, test it and leave some feedback if you find any problems.
