Frequently Asked Questions about Quanta CMS

Question:

Can I run Quanta on Windows / XAMP?

Answer:

Unfortunately not.

Quanta's data model, using the file system as a database, is making great use of UNIX-based commands such as find and grep to allow quick loading of nodes. 

At the moment Quanta will only work out of the box on all Linux distributions, Apple OSx, etc. - but not on Microsoft Windows.

While we are still thinking if we should support native Windows commands as alternatives to the Linux ones, Windows users can rely on an Oracle VM - Virtualbox or VMware (via Vagrant) and use their UNIX virtual machine to run Quanta seamlessly!
