Simple Document Management

Hi, guys. Do you have suggestion for a open source document management? Java or PHP preferably.

I am only familiar with Alfresco, but it seems bloated. Features I need:

  • tree like directory structure and upload files
  • versioning of files
  • groups and permissions. certain user groups can't view certain folders (e.g. Staff cant read Confidential files).
  • Must have downloadable copy that I can install in a LAN with no internet. Meaning I don't want free hosted service such as google drive, but installable app.

Thank you

    Um... well...

    Wouldn't AjaXplorer fit your needs?

    There's also possibility of Tonido.

    Although I don't quite recall either of them supporting versioning (don't know how important this is to you)...

    I cant find versioning in ajaxplorer, and user group permission. both are very important for me, as I will use to run an office with around 20 people.

  • Ahh, well I"ll continue looking around here and there but that was the best I had at the moment.

    Possibly just using trac or some of the other project collaboration suites?

    Trac is a bit technical, users are non-technical. Good idea with project collaboration suite. I'll check some software out =)

    I wish I can just do an SVN server, and hopefully there is some nice GUI for it that ordinary people can understand using. SVN has versioning and access restrictions.

  • sarcasm Why not just use GitHub.

    I have installed a gitlab, but only for myself so I can host my code and view it anywhere I go.

    Git is tricky. I remember the first time I used it in a company I just joined in the past. I thought I could just hack my way through without someone explaining, or read online docs. I thought it was just similar to CVS or SVN, but just faster.

    thanks peppr, will check them

    owncloud :) it's not that simple. group share/diffrerent permission, versioning , etc

    Let's bet which dot-name will collapse first ;)

  • jcalebjcaleb Moderator

    thanks tommy. really they have permission and versioning?

  • tommytommy Member

    yes, I've test both and just work.

    Let's bet which dot-name will collapse first ;)
