Snipe-IT Asset Management Installation Documentation

Welcome to the Snipe-IT documentation hub. You'll find comprehensive guides and documentation to help you install Snipe-IT as quickly as possible, as well as support if you get stuck. Let's jump right in!

Get Started    

Requirements

The requirements for Snipe-IT are fairly standard for a modern web server, and most servers will have most or all of these components already installed. If for some reason you don't have them installed, they are relatively easy to add.

NOTE ON SHARED HOSTING:

If you're installing Snipe-IT on shared hosting, you should have most of these installed already, with the exception of LDAP. LDAP integration may not be possible on shared hosting, depending on your web host. Email your hosting provider's support team to determine if your server meets the requirements to install Snipe-IT.
