WebMO System Requirements

The requirements for installating and running WebMO vary by platform. The following lists provide a concise summary of the WebMO system requirements. Detailed installation instructions are also provided.


WebMO has very modest requirements and will run on any modern computer running Linux, Mac OS X, or Windows. The hardware level should not depend on WebMO, but rather on the performance desired from the underlying computational chemistry programs, specifically, how large the jobs are (RAM), how many jobs need to run simultaneously (CPU cores), and how many jobs will be stored on the system (disk space).

Several recommended scenarios are presented below:
