Yes. Form Tools is written in PHP language. So you need a system that supports PHP with access to MySQL server to support Form Tools.

Here is what you can do to verify PHP on my macOS system.

1. If you don't have PHP engine installed, follow other tutorials to install PHP engine.

2. Check PHP version.

fyicenter$ which php
/usr/bin/php

fyicenter$ php -version
PHP 5.6.30 (cli) (built: Feb  7 2017 16:18:37)
Copyright (c) 1997-2016 The PHP Group
Zend Engine v2.6.0, Copyright (c) 1998-2016 Zend Technologies

3. Test MySQL database access with a PHP script.

fyicenter$ php -a

php > $con = mysqli_connect('127.0.0.1','formtools','f0rmt00l$', 'formtools');

php > print mysqli_get_server_info($con);
8.0.17

PHP engine is ready for Form Tools.
