Joomla 3.X System Requirements

Below are the Joomla 3.X System Requirements .

If Your system does not meet these minimum requirements, Joomla will either not install correctly, or be just plain buggy.  Currently I know for certain Ubuntu 14.04 LTS will run Joomla “out of the box”. I also know that a standard Centos 5.x and 6.x server will NOT run joomla.  Due to the way redhat tags packages with version numbers.
