Installing shiny server within a virtual environment


Our team currently hosts our R Shiny dashboard using the Shiny Server which runs on our HPC (runs CentOS 7). The Shiny Server currently runs R v3.6.3, but we’d ideally like to upgrade the R version to R v4.1.2 in order to install packages like flextable.

However, before attempting to do so and risk breaking our current configuration of the shiny server, is there any way to create a shiny server within a virtual environment to allow us to freely test/upgrade/download R and R packages without it affecting our current install of the shiny server?

Thank you!
