We will need to set up an Ignition Gateway and database and then configure it. This is what we'll be using throughout the tutorial.
- Use a clean Ignition install and new database for this tutorial. We don't want remnants from old projects interfering with our training.
- This tutorial has been developed to walk you through building an MES solution using all our modules. It is not recommended to skip sections as there are some dependencies between sections.
You will need a computer with Ignition installed and access to a database server. If you do not have access to a database server, then follow the steps to install a mySQL database server, or you can use any of the other databases supported by Ignition.
