# Installing LaTeX in a server

I need to run LaTeX in a server using an explorer (just like Safari or Chrome). The thing is that I can't find a software that allows me to do that, as, for example, R Studio does (they have the program in their web page). Is that possible?

I do not need much security. The thing is that I need to run it from my iPad, for example thru safari. The reason why I'm using a server is because I use a lot of packages and most of the computers take a lot of time processing the document.

 Welcome to TeX.sx! – Rico Jan 23 at 21:44 @Rico, mathjax only does render the fonts, or better, it interprets some LaTeX commands and use some different font to show the text. I guess that the OP wants to run pdflatex on the server, for example, to insert some tex text on the field and compile to obtain the pdf. – Sigur Jan 23 at 21:45 Maybe you can use TeXlive.js – Martin Heller Jan 23 at 21:45 It might be useful to give more details of the workflow that needs to be supported. Are we talking users upload .tex files and get a PDF back or something more complex? Do you need the server to run as a service (daemon)? Any particular security requirements? – Joseph Wright♦ Jan 23 at 21:46 It's also interesting whether you can act as root or not – Rico Jan 23 at 21:53
