Here is a list of the software required by Jaris to run.

Opcode Cacher

Each time a php script is run the source is translated into small chunks called opcode that some how look similar to assembly code. The process of trasnfroming from source to opcode can hit the server performance. Fortunately there exists extensions to cache the opcode output for later use improving performance up to 300% in some cases. Here is a list of known php optimizers.

Clean URLs

Jaris can work with clean urls enabled or disabled, but it is preferred and recommended to have them enabled since some components maynot work properly without them. The .htaccess file already adds the proper rewriting rule for clean url's. In the case of Hiawatha a hiawatha.conf file is provided with an example of how to set url rewrites for Jaris.
