Koken is software that requires a web server to setup and use. To install Koken you need to know how to create a MySQL database and be comfortable uploading files via FTP.
Koken requires a web server with at least the following software libraries installed. If unsure, contact your web hosting provider.
- PHP 5.3.0 or higher
- MySQL 5 or higher
- ImageMagick, Imagick, GraphicsMagick or GD. More on choosing an image processor
Recommended, but not required, for enhanced functionality:
- FFmpeg (for video thumbnails)
- Apache 2+ (nicer URLs, gzip, etc)
If your server is supported you may install the app.
If you are looking for a web hosting provider we have a list of recommendations.
Koken may be installed locally on your desktop computer but you will need the requisite web server software and technical know-how to do so. Unless you really know what you're doing we recommend using a reputable web hosting provider instead.

Mac OS X: Chrome 19+, Safari 6+, Firefox, Opera 15+
