After you are registered and you receive your license key, you can download and install the latest server installer. The server installer includes each required component, including the x360Sync server, Apache server, and PostgreSQL database.

Please run the server installer as a local administrator (not as a domain administrator) on a stand-alone Windows Server. PostgreSQL cannot install properly if the server is a member of a domain. You can optionally elevate the server to a domain after installation.

If you would like to configure a high-availability environment, please contact the x360Sync Support Team.
