TeamCity 2018.1 Help


If you are upgrading your existing TeamCity installation, please refer to Upgrade.

Check System Requirements

Before you install TeamCity, please familiarize yourself with Supported Platforms and Environments. Additionally, read the hardware requirements for TeamCity. Note that these requirements differ significantly depending on the server load and the number of builds run.

Install Additional Build Agents

Although the TeamCity server in .exe and .tar.gz distributions is installed with a default build agent that runs on the same machine as the server, this setup may result in degraded TeamCity web UI performance, and if your builds are CPU-intensive, it is recommended to install build agents on separate machines or ensure that there is enough CPU/memory/disk throughput on the server machine.

To set up additional build agents, follow the instructions.
