    Hello Susan,

    The minimum requirements we recommend to run jBilling are:

    • OS: Linux, Ubuntu, Debian, or Redhat.
    • Memory: 4GB.
    • Processor: 2 cores 3 ghz.
    • Java 1.6 (not older or newer)
    • DB: PostgreSQL, Oracle, MySQL, SQL Server.
    • Disk Space: Minimum of 40GB to have space for doing backups and also for the logs which tend to take a lot of space.
    • Tomcat: to run the application in a development environment tomcat is not needed as Grails comes built in with an application server. If they intend to run it in production mode then we already have a tomcat with all the dependencies so they should use that one.

    Hope this answers your question.
    Don't hesitate to contact us again!

    Hello Ali,

    Please make sure you have set below environmental variables:
    JAVA_HOME = < pathToJavaInstallationFolder >
    CATALINA_HOME = < pathToTomcatInstallationFolder >
    PATH - Append %JAVA_HOME%\bin and %CATALINA_HOME%\bin
    Also don‟t add any spaces in the folder name where you
    unzip the package. This is known to create problem while
    executing jBilling community application.
    For example: c:\Program files\ (folder name has space – this
    will cause issues).

    Hope this answers your question!
    Let us know if we can help you with anything else.

    Hi Support team,

    What would be typical Hardware requirement for a 250k customer base for an on-premise setup?

    Venkat - What is the average number of orders per customer? Similarly, what
    jobs would you like to run besides Billing on this server?

    Just to be clear, besides Billing, you could run collections process,
    payments process, order and card notifications etc. How often you run
    Billing process, is it daily or is it monthly, are you okay to let billing
    run overnight or do you need it to finish in 1 hour and so on.. these
    questions will help you decide how much vertical scaling is required.
