To run memoQ server 8.1, you need a computer that has the following:
•A PC with an Intel Core i5 or more powerful processor. For best performance, a server-class computer is recommended with a Xeon processor.
•4 GB of RAM. If you work with more than 10 users, 8 GB or more is recommended, depending on the size of your projects and the number and size of your translation memories.
You need a 64-bit Windows system to work with more than 3 GB of memory. (You need a 64-bit Windows system, period.)
•360 MB of hard disk space for the application, 50-100 GB of hard disk space for the data. You can store the data on a different disk from the application. 500 GB or more is recommended.
Use an advanced disk system, or choose a computer that has it: SAS (Serial-Attached SCSI) disks or solid state disks (SSD) are recommended in a RAID-1 (mirrored) or RAID-5 arrangement, with a capacity of 1 TB or more if you expect a heavy work-load or work with more than 20 users.
•A Windows Server operating system: Windows Server 2008 R2 SP1 (this is the minimum), Windows Server 2012, Windows Server 2012 R2, or Windows Server 2016 is recommended. 32-bit and 64-bit operating systems are both supported, but you will need a 64-bit system because of the memory requirements. Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2008 were all discontinued: these systems will not run memoQ server. In addition, it is not recommended to run memoQ server or desktop Windows systems, although it will run on Windows 10 Pro.
•Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6.1 or higher. You may need to install this prerequisite manually.
•Microsoft SQL Server 2008, 2008 R2, 2012, 2012 R2, 2014, or 2016. The Express, Developer, Standard, and Enterprise editions are all supported. By default, the memoQ server installation program installs SQL Server 2014 Express. If you wish to use a different SQL Server edition, you need to install and configure SQL Server before installing the memoQ server.
Trial or Evaluation editions are not supported: Using such editions is known to cause problems.
•If you are using ELM or CAL licenses: TCP port 80 needs to be open both for inbound and outbound requests on the server and in any firewall you may be using. This port is required for activation traffic. The server must be able to communicate over this port. memoQ server can communicate through a proxy server.
•A DNS domain name (such as ‘memoq.mycompany.com’) for your server if you plan to access it over the Internet. Never use the IP address to connect to a memoQ server, and plan the DNS domain name carefully, so that it will not change over time. If you stay with the IP address, you will have serious problems when you need to move the server.
•TCP port 2705 open on the server and any firewalls. This is the main service port: the memoQ server computer must be accessible through this port at all times.
Administrator access required: To install memoQ server 8.1, or to perform any of the procedures from these pages, you need to log on to the server computer as a member of the Administrators group.
Use Remote Desktop: You need to do everything "locally" on the server computer. However, you will not have physical access to the server itself, so you will need to install or configure memoQ server from another computer. In this case, you need to use Remote Desktop to log on to the desktop of the server computer. Remote Desktop is built into Windows and Windows Server systems.
