On-site Installation of xTuple PostBooks® Edition, client and server


If you plan to test xTuple locally, the easiest and most reliable method is to install our virtual machine (VM), which includes the database and the server components required for mobile web access. The process of setting up the VM is simple. Just follow the xTuple virtual machine installation instructions available on our Github site, where we manage all of the xTuple application code. You will be able to use both a web browser and the xTuple desktop client to connect to the local server that you set up.

If you do not want to install a virtual machine, you can follow these instructions for installing the xTuple database only. Be aware, however, that this is both more complicated and less useful--you will not have access to the important mobile web features that are included in the virtual machine installation.
