Installing Botpress

To start your Botpress integration, you need to have your own instance up and running. There are three ways of doing that:

  • Download and install an Open Source instance of Botpress. You will find all the information needed to have an online instance ready to go on the website. If you don't know how to use docker composer, we will provide a step-by-step guide soon.

  • Go with the paid version of Botpress – fees are project- and user-based. In that case, hosting will be provided by Botpress.

  • Go with Virbe – we can set it all up for you! Just contact us and let us know what your needs are! We will give you custom pricing for that.
