Installation Guide

MariaDB is recommended over MySQL as it brings better performance but MySQL will still work with Feedbacky if you already have it installed.
Additional configuration needed, do not skip this part if you already have MariaDB installed.
Installation Guide

Webserver

A webserver is needed in order to point a domain to your instance. Any will suffice as long as they support reverse proxy.
We have a guide for both Apache and Nginx, choose the one you prefer.

Apache

Size; ~10MB
Apache will require further configuration to enable reverse proxy support.
Installation Guide

Nginx

Size; ~2MB
Nginx supports reverse proxy out of the box.
Installation Guide

Caddy

Coming soon!

Certbot

Size; ~2MB
Certbot is a tool to generate SSL certificates, which we are covering in our Domain Setup guide.
Installation Guide

Terminal Multiplexer

Optional
During the startup process Feedbacky will use your current terminal window and unless you SSH again in your server with a new session, you won't be able to do anything else.
The solution to this is by using a terminal multiplexer, allowing you to run multiple sessions under a single window.
