Are you running Magnolia on an OS that is not listed here? Let us know by leaving a comment at the bottom of the page or post to the forum.
You need a Java Development Kit (JDK) or a Java Runtime Environment (JRE) on your system to run Magnolia and either the Tomcat application server that ships with the bundle or a Java EE 8 / Jakarta EE 8 compliant server.
JRE is an implementation of the Java Virtual Machine which executes Java programs. JDK is a bundle of software that you can use to develop Java based applications. If you plan to write your own Java code get the JDK. If you just want to run Magnolia then JRE is sufficient.
Magnolia releases run on the active Java version at the time of the first release.
|Java SE 1.8.0||Java SE 1.7.0||Java SE 1.6.0|

If you are using AdoptOpenJDK on macOS 10.15, be aware that this build of OpenJDK is currently facing a segmentation fault problem issued as https://github.com/AdoptOpenJDK/openjdk-build/issues/1315, which also affects our Periscope module. Until the issue is fixed in the AdoptOpenJDK project, you can bypass it by excluding the
magnolia-periscope-result-ranker artifact from your instances, temporarily losing the functionality the result ranker provides.
On Mac OS X we recommend that you use Java SE 7 update 65+ or Java SE 8 update 20+. Earlier Java SE versions have an issue that manifests during activation and can bring the Java virtual machine down with a segmentation fault. This issue occurs in environments where certain versions of OS X, Java and Tomcat application server are present. See Problematic environments.
Wildfly (JBoss AS):
Wildfly 8, 9
Wildfly 10 (requires Java 8 or later)
* We support Chrome, Firefox, Safari and IE versions that are not older than 2 years. As of 2016-06-13, Admincentral does not work properly on Windows 8 with the Chrome browser.
** Microsoft ended support for Internet Explorer 8, 9 and 10 on January 12, 2016. These browsers are not supported on Magnolia. Internet Explorer 11 works, however a few bugs are known on the respective minor versions.
*** Android tablets with Chrome generally work well but we don't fully support Android just yet.
Magnolia Templating Essentials (MTE) supports all CSS3/HTML5 compatible browsers and includes a ready-to-use solution for making all the functionality and design available in IE7 and IE8 as well.
