Which installation method is best for me?
This is a by-OS breakdown of how you can install the software on your machine.
As LRR is a server app first and foremost, its setup is a bit more complex than your usual Desktop application. However, a lot of work as been done behind the scenes to make it easy!
Look at the methods below for something that fits your OS and usage.
This method works on 64-bit editions of Windows 10 only.
I provide a dedicated installer for Windows machines as of 0.6.0, complete with a GUI and autostart.
Taking a page from sysadmin books, you can easily install LRR as a container with Docker. They're lightweight, easy to update, and automatically built/tested. I recommend this for NAS setups!
Installing from source is a more involved procedure, but it does put you in full control and able to hack up the app's files as you wish.
Ready-to-install packages provided by voluntary maintainers or by a linux distribution itself.
Similar to installing from source with an altered process for FreeBSD compatability.
I really hope you guys don't do this
Switch to 10 or Linux.
