Installing Allegra#

Allegra runs on many operating systems and works with many database systems and web servers. For Windows systems the easiest way to install Allegra is is Windows on XAMPP.

On Unix systems the installation is most easiest with the Docker Installer. This will allow Allegra to run anywhere there is a Docker container (e.g. Windows, Debian Linux, RedHat Linux, macOS).

In addition, Allegra can also be run directly in other container environments and with databases other than those provided with the Docker installer and for XAMPP.
