Put it online with Shiny Server

If you want to put your Shiny application on the web, you need Shiny Server.

While the Shiny package itself includes a basic web server, it's only designed to serve one application at a time. And if an error occurs that causes the Shiny application to exit, your application will be down until you manually start it up again.

Shiny Server is designed to serve up multiple Shiny applications on the same server. It handles the job of launching and managing the R processes that run your Shiny apps, and directs web traffic to the correct process based on request URL.

Note: Shiny Server and Shiny Server Professional are currently only supported on Linux. We provide 64-bit binary installers for Ubuntu/Debian and Red Hat/CentOS.
