Manual Installation

The manual installation process is recommended for larger instances, or for administrators more familiar with installing and managing a web server. No matter the OS of the host server, the general process is essentially the same:

  1. Install Nodejs and NPM
  2. Create a directory for MeshCentral to run from
  3. If it is to be a public-facing (WAN mode) server, verify you have public DNS record and IP Address assigned properly
  4. (optional) Install and configure MongoDB
  5. Install MeshCentral using NPM
  6. Adjust default configuration of MeshCentral
  7. Run MeshCentral
  8. Open required ports in the firewall

Below is a list of the available detailed instructions for installing MeshCentral on different operating systems:
