|-||Instant Mantis is an out-of-the-box, pre-configured, full featured version of Mantis that runs without having to install the application, the web server and the database. It has been tested on Windows 2000/XP/Vista and should work just as well with other flavors of Windows. Everything required to run Mantis is included in a zip file. Just unpack the file to your hard disk, launch the web server and database processes and open your browser to the Mantis home page.||+|
|-||Instant Mantis is ideally suited to those who want to evaluate or test Mantis or use it for demos. It is also great if a portable version of Mantis is required which can work on an isolated notebook or a from a USB drive. Conceivably, it could also be used for mini projects where you want a quick way to keep track of bugs without the overhead of having a full install of the web server and database. At the moment however, we do not recommend using Instant Mantis in a production environment specially when it is accessible from the Internet.||+|
|-||The good news is that an Instant Mantis runs the exact Mantis code and uses the Mantis database schema. And hence what started as a testing area or a trial installation can then be upgraded easily to a production instance.||+|
