Installing Teamwork Server

In order to install Teamwork Server, you need both the server program and a valid license key. If you have purchased Teamwork Server, you can download both of them from your customer account.

Get them ready, and read through this page to install the Teamwork Server. Before you start, make sure you have a machine ready for the installation of Teamwork Server. The minimum requirement of such machine is that it must be accessible by client machines through network, either Intranet or Internet.
