The moment we've all been waiting for ...


If you are interested in installing OpenBoxes on your laptop or in the cloud, you should download the latest release and following the installation instructions according to your platform.

NOTE: OpenBoxes is distributed as a WAR file. In order to run OpenBoxes you'll need to deploy the WAR file to a Java servlet container (i.e. Tomcat, Jetty, Glassfish, etc) -- Tomcat 7 is recommended. In addition, you'll need to install a somewhat recent version of the MySQL database (MySQL 5.5 or older).
