It would be presumptuous to start our relationship by asking you to trust us with what could be your most secret business secret, your plans for the future. That is why The PlanMinder is implemented as a self hosted service.
The PlanMinder software is licensed software that we provide, but it needs a database to store information shared between users. We have chosen to use PostgreSQL, an open source free and widely spread database for The PlanMinder. That is the service you need to host yourself.
You can use local Linux or Windows based server, or a virtual cloud based server.
Using DigitalOcean’s 1-Click app for The PlanMinder you can have a virtual server up and running in 10 minutes. By using our referral code you get the opportunity to try out their service for 60 days (may be subject to change), matching our 60 days trial period. Follow this step by step guide.
You can download PostgreSQL from https://www.postgresql.org/ and find instructions on how to set it up on your particular system.
The PlanMinder has been tested with versions 10, 11 and 12 of PostgreSQL, and should work with newer versions.
See these notes on how to prepare a database for The PlanMinder. By having the data on a server you control you can ensure that you can follow your own guidelines regarding security, backups, and handling of personal information.
