💿 Prerequisites

Whether you have purchased a self-hosted licence, or whether you'd like to install a trial version of Retrospected locally, you will need to have the following prerequisites before doing the actual installation.


Only basic knowledge of the Linux command line and Docker is necessary to follow the instructions below.


In order to run Retrospected, you will need to install both Docker and Docker Compose on your system.

Use Linux!

Docker only runs natively on Linux (and to a certain extent in Windows via WSL), so a Linux installation is recommended. If you want to test it on Mac OS or Windows, you can install Docker Desktop which will install both Docker and Docker Compose.

In order to install Docker on Linux (Ubuntu / Debian / Mint), please run the following commands:

sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install
sudo apt-get install docker-compose

You also might want to create a docker group to allow Docker to run without sudo:

sudo groupadd docker
sudo usermod -aG docker $USER
