PEPS was an innovative open source email and collaboration server.
|New internal message protocol|
|Powered by Node.js|
|Data in MongoDB|
This open source portal enables you to download and install PEPS on your own server.
PEPS is an open source email, file sharing and collaboration server that intends to fullfil the need for high-quality on-premises software that could rival with top-notch SaaS products such as Gmail or Dropbox, and innovate with new features.
PEPS is built to be extensible thanks to complete APIs and we aim at creating an ecosystem of compatible apps and services.
The deployment of a single PEPS server is made easy with Docker. You should have your server up and running in 30 minutes. PEPS uses technologies that can scale up, but this will require some more work or you can contact our company.
First install Docker on your server. If you are new to Docker, you can use Docker-ready linux instances at DigitalOcean or similar services. You must have at least 2 Gb RAM for your PEPS instance.
To build the Docker containers and run on a Docker instance, just type:
# Just in case, install make apt-get install make # Clone the repository git clone https://github.com/MLstate/PEPS cd PEPS # Configure your domain name echo YOUR_DOMAIN_NAME > domain # Build the containers make build make certificate # or install existing certificates server.key and server.crt # Run the containers make run
To later stop, start and remove containers, you can use:
make stop make start make rm
PEPS runs by default using HTTPS.
The only major pre-requisites are that you should have installed
server.crt and server.key in the
$(PEPS_ETC) directory (by default
/etc/peps) which is shared by several containers.
If you want to start quickly with a self-signed certificate, type:
Note that the same certificates are used for the HTTPS server and the SMTPS services.
You should now be able to run the PEPS server at
https://YOUR_DOMAIN_NAME and connect to it, you then need to:
- Set up the 'admin' password at first launch and accept the license
- Head to the "Users" tab in the topbar
- Create users, teams, and go!
Manuals for both users and admins are available in form of the PEPS wiki:
