Tinyboard - A lightweight PHP imageboard.


Tinyboard is a free light-weight, fast, highly configurable and user-friendly imageboard software package. It is written in PHP and has few dependencies.


  1. PHP >= 5.3
  2. MySQL server
  3. mbstring
  4. PHP GD
  5. PHP PDO

We try to make sure Tinyboard is compatible with all major web servers and operating systems. Tinyboard does not include an Apache .htaccess file nor does it need one.


  1. MySQL server >= 5.5.3
  2. ImageMagick (command-line ImageMagick or GraphicsMagick preferred).
  3. APC (Alternative PHP Cache), XCache or Memcached


You can contribute to Tinyboard by:

  • Developing patches/improvements/translations and using GitHub to submit pull requests
  • Providing feedback and suggestions
  • Writing/editing documentation

If you need help developing a patch, please join our IRC channel.


  1. Download and extract Tinyboard to your web directory or get the latest development version with:

    git clone git://
  2. Navigate to install.php in your web browser and follow the prompts.

  3. Tinyboard should now be installed. Log in to mod.php with the default username and password combination: admin / password.

Please remember to change the administrator account password.
