This manual is being depreciated. Much of the information here is out of date.

The new Jomres Documentation, updated in 2022, can be found at


Minimum Server Requirements

You must already have a working installation of a CMS to install Jomres onto. Jomres by default supports all current versions of Joomla.


  • PHP 7.4 or above (PHP8 if you want to use the Wordpress 6 or Joomla 4 Quickstarts)

  • MySQL 4.1 or above

  • Apache 1.13.19 or above

  • php.ini memory_limit set to 256M.

  • Disk space. We strongly recommend that you have at least 500mb disk space available. Currently the Jomres zip file is 24mb in size, unzipped it is 80mb. During the update process therefore you will need 24+80+80 (existing Jomres installion) + however much disk space the rest of your CMS and images need.

PHP Requirements

To use the full functionality of Jomres you will need the following PHP features/modules enabled:


  • CURL - Used for downloading all plugins including modules from the Jomres servers.
  • File system functions - Used for uploading of property and room images, writing temporary data etc. (required)
  • You must ensure that you have MySQL, XML and Zlib support built into PHP. (required)
  • MBString features must be enabled.
  • ZipArchive must be enabled.
  • GD must be enabled.


Whilst this list may look pretty daunting, most quality hosts will provide this functionality in a standard hosting package.

Max Input Vars

If you intend to install the Advanced/Micromanage tariff editing modes plugin, please be aware that it's recommended that you increase your PHP max_input_vars setting to something higher than the default 1000.


Max Execution Time

Depending on how fast the server internet connection is to our jomres servers, downloading and installing Jomres may take up to 2-3 minutes, so max_execution_time in php.ini must be set to 300 or more, or at least the hosting provider should allow overriding it from php scripts.
