Administrator documentation

You want to install pretalx on your own server? That’s great! We have documentation for a standard installation using pip in an unprivileged local user account. If you want a more out-of-the-box way of running pretalx, head over to our docker-compose setup (but note that the pip installation is by far better tested and supported than the docker setup).

The following documents an uncomplicated setup without going into details on performance tuning, alternate caching backends, and so on. – if you have questions, don’t hesitate to ask. (Or you can play around and send us documentation pull requests!)

We also provide an ansible role compatible with our pip setup.
