First time installation

A standard installation assumes access to the internet from the computer where OpenREM is being installed. Sometimes this isn’t possible, so we’ve added instructions for an offline installation too. Currently it focuses on Windows only (for the server - the computer connected to the internet can be running any operating system).


During the installation process, you will need to install a database. For testing only, you can use the built in SQLite3 database, but for production use you will need a production grade database. This is covered in the Pre-installation preparations documentation, but as you will probably want to find the database instructions again, the links are repeated here.
