Mautic is the world’s largest open source marketing automation project. With over 200,000 organisations using Mautic and over 1,000 community volunteers, we empower businesses by making it easy to manage their marketing across a range of channels. Stay up to date about initiatives, releases and strategy via our blog.
Marketing automation has historically been difficult to implement within organisations. The Mautic Community is an example of open source at its best, offering great software and a vibrant and caring community in which to learn and share knowledge.
Open source means more than open code. Open source provides equality for all and a chance for everyone to improve.
Before we tell you how to install and use Mautic, we like to shamelessly plug our awesome user and developer communities! Users, start here for inspiration, or follow us on Twitter @MauticCommunity or Facebook @MauticCommunity. Once you’re familiar with using the software, maybe you will share your wisdom with others in our Slack channel.
Calling all devs, testers and tech writers! Technical contributions are also welcome. First, read our general guidelines about contributing. If you want to contribute code, read our CONTRIBUTING.md or Contributing Code docs then check out the issues with the T1 label to get stuck in quickly and show us what you’re made of.
If you have questions, the Mautic Community can help provide the answers.
Installing and using Mautic
Please check the latest supported versions on the Mautic Releases page.
The GitHub version is recommended for both development and testing. The production package (including all libraries) is available at mautic.org/download.
Install from source only if you are comfortable using the command line. You'll be required to use various CLI commands to get Mautic working and keep it working. If the source/database schema gets out of sync with Mautic releases, the release updater may not work and will require manual updates. For production, we recommend the pre-packaged Mautic which is available at mautic.org/download.
Also note that source code outside of a tagged release should be considered ‘alpha’. It may contain bugs, cause unexpected results, data corruption or loss, and is not recommended for use in a production environment. Use at your own risk.
How to install Mautic
You must already have Composer available on your computer because this is a development release and you'll need Composer to download the vendor packages.
Also note that if you have DDEV installed, you can run 'ddev config' followed by 'ddev start'. This will kick off the Mautic first-run process which will automatically install dependencies and configure Mautic for use. ✨ 🚀 Read more here
