System Requirements

Learn about the required and supported system elements for the application. Don't forget that you should also have a plan to back up your installation!

Jive includes most of what you need to get the application running and configured for a simple evaluation or development installation, but running it in production requires you to set up a database and configure a distributed environment with multiple server nodes. Each production instance will include external components you'll need to provide. Please read the following requirements carefully before you begin your installation.

Note: Previous versions included a Postgres database as part of the installation package: this component is no longer included. See Quick Database Setup for instructions on how to set up your database if you want to create a single-computer installation for non-production use.
