# Frequently asked questions

# What platforms are supported by XT MIO?

The XT Massive Image Optimizer (opens new window) package is built on PHP. PHP is a popular general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited to web development. As a consequence, the package can be installed and deployed on most server configurations.

Since the package requires a list of optimization tools (opens new window), you must be able to install them on the server. Alternatively, a Dockerfile is provided to avoid the installation of the tools, but the server must allow the execution of Docker services.

The XT Massive Image Optimizer command-line is currently in use on servers running:

  • WordPress
  • Joomla!
  • PrestaShop
  • Drupal
  • Laravel
  • TYPO3
  • Magento
  • LAMP
  • Static websites, or
  • As a Docker container in any server.

# Which is the best way to execute the optimization process?

If your server has the support of Docker containers, then the execution of the command-line in a container is the best way to install all the necessary tools and fully controlling the process without affecting the rest of the server processes.

# Can the process be executed as a WordPress plugin or Joomla! plugin?

No. Since the optimization process executes several tools iteratively, the command-line can only be run from the terminal or by the Cron Job execution.
