The Intrexx 8 setup used in this blog

The goal of this blog is to show you the technical side of Intrexx. This means it isn’t important what Webserver or Database I use, because you can switch them afterwards to whatever you want to use. Here I want to show you the setup I use to build my examples.


Oracle VirtualBox 5.1.18
Ubuntu Mate 16.04 LTS 64-Bit
4 GB RAM (recommended 8GB and more)


PostgresQL 9.5.6

Let the Games begin!
