0. Try the Demo
Before installing we recommend taking a look at the OpenWISP Demo system to get a quick overview.
1. Install the OpenWISP server application
If you want to find out how to deploy OpenWISP for production usage, follow the 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
Here’s a guide on 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, that’s also covered by the guide.
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.
