Installation requirements for a POC

Create an account on https://ems.element.io/user/hosting. Report back which email you used, so we use this account to give you access to the installer package.

Create a matrix.org account on https://app.element.io/#/register and report back your matrix ID, so I can invite in a room where we can support you.

If you need to use a proxy to access the internet, please read Configuring a microk8s Single Node Instance to Use a Network Proxy

Server without any internet access

Without this requirement satisfied, our installer will fail.
