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.
