The purpose of this page is to help you get started with iDempiere as quickly as possible.
Question #1 – How to see it in action?
Question #2 – Where to host?
My recommendation is to host using Amazon’s AWS (AWS wikipedia). If you are creating a new AWS account, you get a small server for free for one year. This small server is perform for evaluating iDempiere with a small team.
Question #3 – How to Install?
If you are technical or just plain adventurous, you can easily install iDempiere yourself. All you need is a fresh 64-bit ubuntu 16.04 linux server. You can issue the below command, and iDempiere will magically appear about 10 minutes later
sudo apt-get -y update; sudo apt-get -y install mercurial; hg clone https://bitbucket.org/cboecking/idempiere-installation-script; chmod 766 idempiere-installation-script/*.sh; ./idempiere-installation-script/idempiere_install_script_master_linux.sh -P Silly -u ubuntu -l &>output.txt; nano /opt/chuboe/idempiere_installer_feedback.txt
If the above task does not sound appealing, I will install iDempiere for you. All I as is that you join the ERP Academy for one month ($199 USD). As part of your membership, I will install iDempiere in AWS under your AWS account, and I will document the whole process. Here are the ERP Academy frequently asked questions. I hope to see you there!
