Current Stable Release
Aura 1.0.0-alpha3 is the current stable release, which is released under the GNU General Public License, version 3. We recommend using this release for deployment in a production environment.
In order to run Aura, you must have access to a webserver. We currently support database drivers for the MySQL database types. Aura currently requires at least PHP v5.3.0 to run, and no less than MySQL v5.0.11.
Aura 1.0.0-alpha3 should work using InnoDB or MyISAM on any MySQL or MariaDB version greater than v5.0.11, however currently no other database type is supported.
Before installing Aura, please read the related documentation. This should help to make you aware of everything you need to know when installing.
