Use our quickstart guide below to help you get set up with using OpenWISP.

0. Try the Demo

Before installing OpenWISP, we recommend that you try out the OpenWISP Demo system. This will give you an overview of how the system works. Once you have taken a look at the demo follow the steps below.

1. Install the OpenWISP server application

If you want to find out how to deploy OpenWISP for production usage, follow this step-by-step ansible-openwisp2 tutorial.

Alternatively, there’s also docker-openwisp (in alpha stage) which can be especially useful for testing purposes.

For testing purposes vagrant-openwisp2 can be used as well.

2. Install openwisp-config on your devices

The following guide will walk you through how to install openwisp-config on OpenWRT and connect it to OpenWISP.

If you don’t have a physical OpenWRT-compatible device at hand, you can install OpenWRT in a VirtualBox VM, the guide above covers how to do this.

3. Install openwisp-monitoring on your devices

If you want to take advantage of the features offered by the monitoring module of OpenWISP, read the Monitoring Quickstart Guide.
