Getting Started

Step-by-step installation instructions for our self-hosted community edition can be found on - all you need is a Web browser and Docker to run the server. It is available for Mac, Linux, and Windows.

Our latest release not only includes facial recognition, it also comes as a single multi-arch image for AMD64, ARM64, and ARMv7. That means you don't need to pull from different Docker repositories anymore. We recommend updating your existing

config based on our examples.
