Processor with SSE2 support
Boost ≥ 1.71
MySQL ≥ 5.7.0
OpenSSL = 1.x.x
CMake ≥ 3.18.4
Clang ≥ 7 (heavy recommended, especially on master branch) or GCC ≥ 8.3.0
zlib ≥ 1.2.7
While compiling you may get one error like: "c++: internal compiler error: Killed (program cc1plus)" the reasons of this can be:
Low ram/swap amount: increase ram/swap to a minimum of 2GB of ram and 2GB of swap or decrease the amount of make -j to 1 (more concurrent compile threads = more memory usage). (you can get this using VPS servers)
SELinux/grsecurity/Hardened kernel: Kernels that use ASLR as a security measure tend to mess up GCC's precompiled header implementation. Try using an unhardened kernel (without ASLR), or compiling using clang, or gcc without pch. (you can get this issue when using OVH hosting).
Your server may be abruptly killed by an angry administrator or system staff or system restrictions for overuse of system resources and you willl see something like:
collect2: fatal error: ld terminated with signal 9 [Killed] compilation terminated.
you will need to use less jobs (make -j1) or increase swap.
(heavy recommended debian stable, it's the distribution we use to set minimum requirements)
Recommendation: Use apt-get with stable source list instead of install packages. We recommend the latest stable version of your distribution. We usually update requirements to the lastest stable Debian version. Avoid mixing stable with experimental packages as it may break your linux OS.
Debian 11.x (you will need to use su to install the packages)

Ubuntu 20.10 (you will need to use sudo to install the packages). WARNING ubuntu 22.04 ships unsupported openssl 3.0 don't update to it

Anything under this is not tested by TrinityCore developers.
Not supported: Debian 10 or lower. Ubuntu 20.04 or lower.
If you have an old Ubuntu version, follow https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Upgrades steps to upgrade it.
Tested on Fedora Server 27/28 (Fedora Workstation 27/28 should also work).

Note: You will only have to compile the boost library one time, unless you update your kernel or update certain security packages. You will also need to update boost-devel. The developer libraries will conflict with the compiled version of boost on Red Hat distros. Also be sure to install boost-devel after compiling latest version of boost.
Note: Some distribution versions might not match our requirements for CMake. If you can't install the EPEL repository on your build server, use the following instructions to install CMake manually.
curl https://cmake.org/files/v3.6/cmake-3.6.1.tar.gz -o cmake-3.6.1.tar.gz tar -zxvf cmake-3.6.1.tar.gz cd cmake-3.6.1 ./bootstrap make make install

Or if you have yay installed, you can follow this instead
pacman -S --needed git clang cmake make gcc openssl bzip2 readline ncurses boost p7zip rpcsvc-proto yay -S mysql57
Then initialize your MySQL database
sudo mysql_install_db --user=mysql --basedir=/usr --datadir=/var/lib/mysql
