Requirements for running Game Control Panel:

  • Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Enterprise (with all service pack upgrades) or greater
  • Apache 2.x or IIS web server installed (preferably Apache!)
  • PHP 5.2.X (does not support 5.3.x+ due to no php_mssql extension availability)
    As of Game CP v2.3.0.0, we have BETA support for PHP 5.3.X+ which requires php_sqlsrv to be available
  • php_mssql extension compiled/enabled with PHP
  • ionCube Loader installed with PHP (http://www.ioncube.com/loaders.php)
