For you to install and run PWS, your computer must meet certain hardware and software requirements. This topic details the requirements, and includes an easy-to-follow table you can use to review your system.
If you intend to publish documents on your intranet, you must have a network connection. If you plan to use PWS as a development and staging platform only, and then upload your site to a corporate server or an Internet service provider, a network connection is not required. In addition, your hardware must meet the following specifications.
Hardware Requirements and Recommendations
|Processor||33 MHz 486||90 MHz Pentium®|
|RAM||16 MB||32 to 64 MB|
|Free hard disk space||20 MB (minimum install)||100 MB|
Tip If you have a name resolution system installed on your network, users can use “friendly” text names instead of IP addresses when connecting to your server.
PWS can be installed on a computer running either Microsoft® Windows® 95 or later, or Microsoft® Windows NT® Workstation 4.0 or later operating system. Microsoft Internet Explorer 4.01 is also required.
