Installing ManicTime Server

Installing database (skip if you are going to use SQLite)

ManicTime Server needs a database to run. You can use one of three databases:

  • SQLite (default) - You don't need to install anything, it will work out of the box. We recommend you use it for up to 10 users, it will probably be too slow for more (depends on your hardware).
  • PostgreSQL - You need to install it before you run ManicTime Server setup
  • Microsoft SQL Server -  You need to install it before you run ManicTime Server setup (you can use free MS SQL Express version)

If you are NOT going to use SQLite as a database, then first install the database.
