Will this work on Shared Sever?

  • Karnika Yashwant

    I have a Shared web hosting server. Will this work on that? It is linux and how hard is it to install?
    How much resource will this consume on average for example for 20 people?

    Please suggest me
    Can I do branding in my self hosted one?

    Hello there,

    I haven't tried this myself, but I don't think it can be installed on a shared web hosting server.

    When I installed dimdim on my server, I needed access to other system folders that I wouldn't be able to access on a shared web hosting server.

    You can do branding if you host dimdim on your own server.

    I'll get back to you about the amount of resources that dimdim uses. I usually host meetings with about 10 people. It's usually a mixture of webcam attendees and audio attendees. I don't notice any horrible lags, but when there is a slight lag, it's probably because of the resources of my dedicated server.

    Just so you have an idea of what I'm working with, I'm using a 1.8GHz Celeron processor with 1GB of RAM to run my website and dimdim.
