  • Windows Server 2022, 2019, or 2016 - only 64-bit versions are supported.

  • Internet Information Services (IIS), minimum version 10.0 (this is installed automatically by FotoWeb unless you are doing an offline installation)

Optional requirements

Optional dependencies

  • Microsoft SQL Server—This is optional and used for the now-deprecated reporting module. You can connect to an existing in-house SQL server or download a recent version of SQL Server Express (external link to the Microsoft website). Keep in mind that the Express version has a database size limit of 10 GB. The SQL server can be omitted if reporting is not required.
    For more information about connecting to the SQL server, see Configuring the site database.
