Recommendation: Use a development server
To minimize the risk of disruption and data loss, Winshuttle strongly recommend installing SharePoint and Winshuttle Workflow on a development (i.e. non-production) server first. Because the development server simulates a server in a real work environment (but operates in isolation), you can create, test, and refine your processes before moving them onto a production server. When you are ready to move to the production server, specify the URL of the production server within Winshuttle Workflow, and publish your workflows and/or forms to that server.
