Liferay Portal

Liferay Portal is an open source enterprise web platform for building business solutions that deliver immediate results and long-term value. Liferay Portal started out as a personal development project in 2000 and was open sourced in 2001.

To get started, check out the project's community homepage at!

Latest Release Details

The latest release, Liferay Portal version 7.1, is built from the source code of Liferay Portal and several other related open source projects. It includes features for end users, business professionals, system administrators, and enterprise developers.

  • Modular architecture for maximum flexibility and reliability
  • Portal features for managing users, groups, and permissions
  • Single page applications for blazingly fast performance
  • Rich web services for integrating with other systems
  • Web content management including Personalization and Content Targeting
  • Documents and rich media management
  • Mobile development platform
  • Business forms and workflow
  • Collaboration features such as blogs, wikis, and social networking
  • Consistent and powerful Lexicon user experience
  • Integrated development environment using Liferay Dev Studio

For more details on these and other features, please refer to the user guide on the Liferay Developer Network.

Quick Start

To get up and running quickly, follow the steps below:

  1. Download a pre-built Liferay Portal release. For starters, it's recommended to choose Liferay Portal bundled with Tomcat.

  2. Download and install Java (JDK) 8 (if necessary) in your local environment.

  3. Extract the downloaded pre-built Liferay Portal bundle into a folder.

  4. Navigate to the bundle's liferay-ce-portal-[version]/tomcat-[version]/bin folder and execute startup.bat (Windows) or (Unix/Linux/Mac OS X), depending on your operating system.

  5. A server console opens, which starts your Liferay Portal instance. Once your instance is ready to use, the portal URL address (http://localhost:8080) is automatically opened in your default browser.

  6. You're presented a Basic Configuration page. Complete the configuration options.

    Liferay Portal uses an embedded database (HSQL) to make installation fast and easy. This database is not ready for production, so consider configuring a production-ready database (e.g., MySQL) if you plan on doing more than just exploring/testing.

  7. Agree to the terms and conditions, create a password, and configure a security question/answer.

You can now use Liferay Portal!

For more detailed installation instructions, refer to the system administrator guide on the Liferay Developer Network.

If you wish to build core Liferay Portal or its plugins, read the CONTRIBUTING guide. It includes details on using the repositories and building the software.

Liferay Developer Network

The Liferay Developer Network (LDN) is the best place to learn about Liferay. It has over 200 tutorials, guided learning, and much more.

LDN provides learning paths and tutorials, which offer great resources to learn how to develop on Liferay Portal. Learning paths are great for those new with Liferay development; they offer a story-like approach, providing a beginning-to-end process for creating something (e.g., developing a Liferay web application). As you gain experience developing on Liferay Portal, you'll want to dive into tutorials for details on leveraging Liferay's technologies and frameworks. If you create apps that you want to share or sell, you can read LDN's Distribute section to learn how to publish apps to the Liferay Marketplace.
