Minimum Requirements

GForge Advanced Server can be installed as either a VMware virtual machine or a source code download. In either case, the minimum hardware requirements for GForge Advanced Server are:

  • 2GB of RAM, 4GB recommended.
  • Disk size requirements depends on the number of projects and the type of content in them. For organizations just starting out we recommend no less than 50GB.
  • CPU: 2.60GHz AMD or Intel processor
  • Operating System: CentOS or RedHat Enterprise Linux. You must install the latest stable version for your distribution of choice.

Default License

Both the virtual machine and source code downloads include a default license which allows up to 5 people in your organization to use GForge Advanced Server on an unlimited number of projects. This is a great way to test drive GForge or to get started in smaller organizations.


This not only provides an easy way to stay up-to-date with GForge releases, it allows customers to make customizations specific to their organization. GForge customers may also install GForge Advanced Server from Git.
