  • know what PHP and MySQL are, and have access to a web server that supports them
  • are able to install and maintain the software yourself without external assistance
  • do not require any of OpenConf's advanced modules
  • are not being paid for providing OpenConf-related services
  • agree to abide by the OpenConf License
