4. Installing MapServer > 4.3. Installing MapServer

Installing MapServer

MapServer runs on a variety of platforms, and the details for installing it vary depending on where you want to run it and how you want to integrate it with the rest of your system.

Platforms

Many operating systems and processors can run MapServer successfully. A recent survey of MapServer application developers showed dozens of different implementations running on many processor speed and type combinations. Included in the survey results were the following operating systems:

  • Windows 2000, XP, 95

  • RedHat/SuSE/Debian/Mandrake Linux, Versions 6 through 9

  • Solaris

  • Mac OS X Panther

  • Vmware running Windows and Linux

  • FreeBSD

  • SCO Open Server

  • SGI IRIX

Reported processor speeds were as low as 120 MHz and as little as 64 MB of memory. Others use the latest processing and memory resources available. With the diversity and flexibility required to meet these cross-platform requirements many developers have found MapServer to be the only option for serving web-based maps.
