If you want to deploy qTest Sessions 3.0.9 and qTest Manager 8.4.4 on the same machine from scratch, check out the section "Install qTest Manager and its additional applications" in another article.
In this article, we'll run you through installing qTest Sessions 3.0.9 on a separated CentOS/ Ubuntu machine using Docker and then connect it to qTest Manager 8.4.4 on a different machine.
