It originally started in 2001 by dotMarketing on SourceForge and has been under the watchful eye of the current dotProject team since around December 2002.

As of version 2.0, dotProject is released under GPL. 1.0.2 and previous versions were released under BSD license. Parts of dotProject include libraries from other projects which are used and re-released under their original licence.

Docker composer support

The latest devel branch now includes a simple docker-compose.yml file and support files. These will allow you to run dotProject by running:

docker-compose up

This will set up an nginx container, a phpfpm container and a mariadb container and point the web server to the base directory of dotProject. All you need to do after that is point your browser to http://localhost/

docker-compose down will retain any data you have created. If you want to start again from a clean slate, use docker-compose down -v to remove the database volume.
