Does not work

Works on Snap and Docker

Does not work fully yet, being tested at bleeding edge

Usually for production you just install Ubuntu 18.04 or Debian 9 VM (or without VM) and install Snap. Minimum 2 GB RAM required, preferably 4 GB or more. Requires KVM/XEN/HyperV VM or Bare Metal, where Linux kernel 3.x or 4.x or newer works, and also Snap works without problems. Requires working websockets.

Production: Docker. No automatic upgrades, use if you have time to test new release first, and it's critical nothing gets broken.

Only Standalone Wekan. If security is critical, keep behind firewall, without any ports open to Internet.

Production: Snap for Linux, install to your own server or laptop. Automatic Updates. Only Standalone Wekan.

If on Snap Stable automatic update breaks something, report Wekan for Snap bugs and feature requests here, so it can be fixed on some automatic update. If security is critical, keep behind firewall, without any ports open to Internet.
