Also, make sure all the installation prerequisites mentioned on the documentation are installed and fulfilled on your server. These prerequisites are mandatory, without these Connect won’t install and won’t work properly. We are not responsible for installing and fulfilling installation prerequisites on your server. Metaphorically speaking, we are selling you a computer, we are not going to set up an electricity board at your place.

- Zip Archive
- cURL (7.70+ version) (for CLI and Web both)
