Standalone vs. production installs?

Douglas Landau
Greets,

This page :  https://network.xwiki.com/xwiki/bin/view/DocXE51En/XWikiEnterpriseInstallation  distinguishes between quick installs and production installs.  It lists the standalone in the former.

Is there anything unsuitable about the standalone install being used for production purposes?   I've been asked to make a server with 500GB for our new XWiki installation, in anticipation of organization-wide use.

After I hit a speedbump or two with the WAR installation, I concluded that by not using the standalone installer I was going against the flow, and would be better off doing as suggested, as stated on the AdminGuide Installation page:  "This is the recommended option for first time XWiki users and for users who wish to quickly try out XWiki."

Should I go back to the WAR installation given the production nature of the requirement/anticipated use?

Related:  I see there is a .deb installer but none for YUM.  We use mostly CentOS.  Am I doing myself a dis-service by trying to use CerntOS for this, and would be better off using Ubuntu?

Thanks very much
Doug

Yes the HSQLDB is configured to be in-memory for ex.

There are various ways to install a production-ready XWiki, see http://platform.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/AdminGuide/Installation#HInstallationMethods

The only one that is not production-ready is the standalone install.

Possibly although installing the WAR is really not hard either.

BTW there are some tutorials for centos contributed by non-xwiki developers:
http://platform.xwiki.org/xwiki/bin/view/AdminGuide/Installation#HOtherInstallationMethods

For example:
https://thishosting.rocks/how-to-build-your-own-wiki-with-xwiki-on-centos/
