4AI technical requirements

AI API provider

4AI builds and send requests to an AI API provider to bring you responses. Currently, only OpenAI is supported.

To use 4AI, you will need an active OpenAI API key. If you don't already have one, please see Getting an OpenAI API key.

OpenAI API access is a paid-for product, see OpenAI pricing. The cost is extremely low, but you'll need to provide them with a credit card before you can use their API.


4AI runs on Joomla 3, 4 & 5 as follows:

  • Joomla 3: version 3.9.0 or more recent
  • Joomla 4: latest published version only.
  • Joomla 5: latest published version only.

4AI is only tested with Joomla native multilingual system. If using a 3rd-party multilingual system, 4AI should generally operate correctly but some or most features may not work as well.

Joomla 3.x support policy

Although this extension generally works fine on Joomla 3, we only officially support the entire feature set on Joomla 4 and up.

What this means is that there can be some new features added or modified that can only work on Joomla 4+. And some features may stop working on Joomla 3 in the future.


PHP version 7.1.0 or more recent


MYSQL version 5.7 or more recent


4AI uses modern javascript technologies for its user interface. It requires a modern, "evergreen" browser such as Chrome, Edge, Brave, Firefox and similar, fully updated.

It is not tested on Safari, although it should work there as well.

Internet Explorer is not supported.
