For production environments and when using a supported distribution, we recommend using the packaged installation. This will install OpenProject as a system dependency using your distribution’s package manager, and provide updates in the same fashion that all other system packages do.

A manual installation option is also documented, but due to the large number of components involved and the rapid evolution of OpenProject, we cannot ensure that the procedure is either up-to-date or that it will correctly work on your machine. This mean if installation is NOT recommended.
