Getting Started Tip - Setting up a Test Server


#1

As you’re using Thriftly.io Developer, you may discover that having a test server setup is more convenient for you. As part of your Thriftly.io trial, you can download and install a deployment version of Thriftly.io Server.

The deployment version of Thriftly.io requires that you have everything you need to run your application already setup. You are not at this time able to install Thriftly.io Server on your development machine, but you can install it inside of another VM on your development machine (this is what we often do internally). Your trial deployment license entitles you to install and run Thriftly.io Server for a period of 30 days with as many applications and on as many machines you like.

After you’ve installed the deployment version of Thriftly.io and activated your license, do whatever steps are necessary to setup your application (don’t forget to install other 3rd party libraries your application may depend on!). Then follow these instructions to get your application up and running in Thriftly.io Server.

When setup in this fashion, you no longer have the 7-day Developer Endpoint limitation. Your application can run at whatever endpoint you setup for the entire trial period. If you need an extended trial period, please feel free to email us at sales@thriftly.io with your request. Make sure to include the email address that your account is registered to.
