System Requirements: Goldfish Websites

Goldfish websites work on all popular webservers. You will need PHP from version 7.0 for many features ike the contact form, redirections or the onlineshop. A Fishbeam Cloud account or FTP resp. FTPS access to the web server is required for publishing the website directly from Goldfish. If your webserver supports only other protocols, such as SFTP (SSH) or WebDAV, you will need to publish with additional apps like Cyberduck.


Goldfish websites work with all popular devices and browsers, such as Safari 9 or newer, Chrome 43 or newer, Internet Explorer 10 or newer, Edge, Firefox 16 or newer and Opera 30 or newer.
