LibreSource is a multi-platform software and runs on most common operating systems (Windows, Linux, Mac OS X,...).

To install LibreSource, the following software are required:

The following conditions have to be fulfilled as well:
  • The user that access the PostgreSQL database MUST BE super user for PostgreSQL so he can import large objects into it.
  • Under windows be sure to install LibreSource under a directory that does not contain any spaces in the path.
  • If PostgreSQL and LibreSource do not run with the same user, you have to be sure that the user that executes the database server can write into the LibreSource working directory. (YOUR_INSTALL_DIR/tmp-work/files)
