KIX compatibility (version 18)

In KIX, the installation process is much simpler as the software is installed using pre-configured Docker containers. In other words, KIX supplies its own operating environment and database.

This makes it easier to use the software on different operating systems, since the key aspect for the host environment is simply that a compatible and executable Docker version has been provided. That's why we recommend checking whether your planned host environment supports the use of Docker before installing KIX.

In order to use KIX, you will need version 20.x of Docker and Docker Compose 2.1.

Instructions for subsequently installing the KIX Docker containers using Linux/MacOS/Windows:

Further information is also available in the KIX forum.

We recommend the following operating systems/environments as the host environments for KIX:
