iDempiere can be installed on most platforms supported by Java and PostgreSQL. The most common platforms are Linux followed by Windows. I will focus on installing and managing iDempiere on Linux in this book. Linux is simply less expensive to operate, and there are more iDempiere convenience scripts available for Linux. Here are some examples.

You have three options easy options when installing iDempiere:

  1. Simple iDempiere Linux Installer – This tool assumes you have PostgreSQL already installed on your server/machine.
  2. Advanced iDempiere Linux Installer – This tool installs most if not all the tools you need to use and manage iDempiere on a Linux server. You can use this script to create a simple evaluation installation, or a large production system supporting hundreds of concurrent users across multiple servers.
  3. Windows iDempiere Installer
