Installation Instructions

Tine 2.0 Business Edition Docker Image | GitHub | Dockerfile


This is an easy way to try out tine20. You need Docker and Docker (

First, create a folder. Docker Compose uses the folder names as an identifier.


mkdir tine20
cd tine20


Then you need to download the current docker-compose.yaml. And save it in the folder just created.




Next, you must accept the tine20 license. One way to do this is by setting the TINE20_ACCEPTED_TERMS_VERSION environment variable to the current or a newer version e.g 1000. This can be done in the .env file or in the docker-compose yaml.


echo "TINE20_ACCEPTED_TERMS_VERSION=1000" > .env


Now you can start the docker-compose.


docker-compose up


Wait a moment until the web container logs `web_1 | 2027-11-23 19:59:07,137 INFO success: nginx entered RUNNING state, process has stayed up for > than 1 seconds (startsecs)` Tine2.0 is now reachable under http: //


Use the following to stop and delete all containers, networks and volumes created by this compose.


docker-compose down --volumes

First Steps

Welcome to Tine 2.0!


This Quick Start Guide is intended to support you in your first steps with Tine 2.0. Further information on the individual functions of Tine 2.0 can be found in the Tine 2.0 User Manual.

When installing Tine 2.0 your user (default user name: "Administrator") has already been created in Tine 2.0. Now log in with this user on the Tine 2.0 start page. At your first login you will be in the address book. Via the tab "Tine 2.0" in the upper left corner you can now activate further applications as you like.

Open the application "Admin" to create your first own user! For security reasons it is recommended not to use an admin user for normal use. Therefore, create your own user now via "Add user". At this point you might notice the item "Home group". Initially there are two groups available in Tine 2.0: Users and Administrators. These groups are assigned to corresponding roles in which the individual access rights are defined. TIP: You can create additional groups and roles in the Admin application under the headings Groups and Roles. Take a closer look at the admin role and user role.

Now you can login with your new user and explore Tine 2.0. If you have further questions regarding the handling, please refer to the Tine 2.0 User Manual. It is located in the upper left corner, next to the user.

License activation

For further configurations or the installation of a license you need the Tine 2.0 Setup. You can reach it under the following URL: YourTine20Url/setup.php


With your new Tine 2.0 Business Edition you have received a license key as a file by mail. This is needed to unlock your installation. Please upload the license key file in the Tine 2.0 Setup in the "License" section.

After you have successfully uploaded the file, you will also find further information about your license here.

Setting up ActiveSync

To set up ActiveSync on the different devices you need the following data:


E-Mail address: If you want to synchronize e-mails e.g.
username: Your Tine 2.0 username e.g. maxmuster
Password: Your Tine 2.0 password Server address: The address of your Tine 2.0 installation, e.g.

ActiveSync cannot be set up for Tine20.


On mobile iOS devices, ActiveSync is set up via "Exchange". The same options are also found on macOS desktop clients. However, this Exchange is a different protocol that cannot be used for ActiveSync. ActiveSync can therefore only be used on mobile devices and is the recommended way to do this. On desktop clients CalDAV should be used.

    Tap on "Settings" > "Passwords & Accounts" >  "Add account" >  "Exchange".

    Enter your e-mail address and tap "Next". You can also enter a description for your account.
