Installing EGroupware 19.1+ via Docker:

EGroupware 19.1 can be installed via Docker, in fact the DEB/RPM packages also does that. Instructions on how to run EGroupware in Docker are in doc/docker subdirectory.

Installing EGroupware 17.1 from github:

switch to 17.1 branch and follow instructions there

Installing EGroupware development version:

apt/yum/zypper install nodejs
npm install -g grunt-cli
  • install EGroupware and dependencies
cd /path/to/your/docroot
git clone # or for ssh
cd egroupware
  • install non-default EGroupware apps by cloning them into your egroupware directory eg.
cd /path/to/your/egroupware
git clone

Keeping EGroupware up to date or switch to release branch:

cd /path/to/your/egroupware
./install-cli.php [<change-channel>]
setup/setup-cli.php # will tell you if a schema-update is necessary

install-cli.php supports the following "channels":

  • release: taged maintenance releases only eg. 17.1.20190222
  • bugfix: release-branch incl. latest bugfixes eg. 17.1, if you are currently on 17.1.20190222
  • <branch>: switch to given branch
  • master: latest development for next release

To change the channel, call install-cli.php <channel-to-update-to>.

For further instalation instructions see our wiki.
